Default Re: Another Ammo question

Eyeball (and others) - thanks for the explanation. The idea of taking a course taught by law enforcement and doing what they say is intriguing.

I'm in Florida and we now have a law that (as it is written at least) says we have a defense (right) to use deadly force without any duty to retreat from a place that we have a lawful right to be (I think I have that right...just took the concealed weapons course....but haven't memorized it yet). At any rate it appears to cover house and vehicle for sure.

Is that different from the state in which you live? I'm 100% in favor of avoiding suit, but I want to be SURE that my wife can STOP the guy.

thanks,
gordon
