For some time now, several tactical shooting friends of mine and I have engaged in robust conversations about what happens AFTER a (supposedly righteous) shoot.
It's interesting that so much time is spent in defensive training, practice and competitive events focusing almost exclusively on the "HOW-TO" aspects: i.e. situational awareness, tactical movement, sight picture, slicing the pie, clearing rooms and stairwelss, shooting from cover, etc.'. and various drills -- all pointing towards the practical aspects of before and during the shoot.
This thread is to compare notes on what we all think should happen next in the way of "handling the situation", particularly if the Perpetrator is now lying dead in a pool of blood and potential witness are scurrying away from the scene.
So...from your own perspective....what exactly should be done and in what order? Do you call 911 or do you have someone else do it? Do you leave your weapon where you stand or do you place it back in your holster? Do you collect the names of people who were there as potential witnesses? When the police arrive and prone you out and place you in custody, what should you say, if anything? I'm curious as to how YOU have thought this sequence through.
P.S. Next month's issue of 'Concealed Carry' magazine will have a detailed article on this subject. In the meantime, let's hear your thoughts, suggestions and ideas on this subject.
