@EarlThePearls @Baline back in the day, a retiring MP taught me: that is not a magic wand. If you unholster said pistol, you'd best be prepared to shoot it. If you do shoot, you had best intend to hit someone. And if your are shooting someone, killing them is an expectable outcome. You can stop anywhere along the way, but these are the expectations
As I've heard it put, waving a gun you don't intend to use _lethally_, is just wasting time you could have used to get away.
