This only works when the one with the gun isn't prepared to kill, and then you could attack him with your fists and he'd run. It isn't easy to kill, or so I've heard. Hell 80% of soldiers the first time they're in combat, intentionally aim above the enemies heads

No, I'm pretty sure I never watched that. I read it somewhere in a discussion about whether humans are inherently good or not for the most part, and at was listed as evidence they were as they were so reluctant to kill even when in danger themselves, though it was refuted as soldiers were too old and too exposed to ideals and morals of others before hand.

But at the same time, one can make nonlethal shots- say, to the legs and arms rather than head and torso. It'll still hurt like **** and incapacitate an average person, but so long as someone staunches the bleeding, they won't die.

Actually, the leg is one of the more lethal places to be shot thanks to your femoral artery being in it. Takes only 3 minutes and 15 seconds to bleed to death if it's cut. Arms are often permanently paralyzed whenever somebody shoots them.

It's better to shoot their ass or, ironically, their torso than their arms or legs.

.... I think I would like to reconsider my point. If you aren't willing to fire it at a person knowing they might die as a result of it, one shouldn't use a firearm. In that decision, consider the ramifications of that hypothetical person dying or staying alive.

In any case, your statement was quite informative. I must know: were you to bandage the gunshot wound, would it take longer for the person to bleed out? As in, if you compress it if you shoot through the femoral artery.

The femoral one's a bit more tricky thanks to all the fat in your thigh. But EMT training basically teaches you to always use a tourniquet. Putting pressure on it, and cutting off the blood flow is the most important thing to keep the wounded person alive until professionals can help.

And awesome, I enjoy getting to inform other people.

Just my 10 cents, you may know this already but it's more desirable to wound and not kill enemy combatants. Causes a higher cost to the state/organization you're fighting in transport, medical supplies and rehab.

Yes, but what we're talking about is an average Joe wanting to avoid killing somebody because they don't want to kill. But yes, we design all of our weapons now to maim and wound first, kill second. Exactly why I told spike that it's actually even more cruel to shoot somebody in a "non-lethal" area. Better to shoot them in the right lung honestly. Takes a while to die from that, and quite easy fix.

I'll keep that in mind I'd rather not kill anyone either.
Though in my limited experience if you charge a guy like that you're probably going to get shot regardless due to the thief freaking the **** out and impulsively pulling the trigger.

Indeed. Using a blade means you can't charge somebody with a firearm, you have to wait for a good moment, and then spring into action. That shop owner really lucked out.

Its alot like that, but in the earlier days they were lucky to have 2 or 3 guys in a group of 12 actually aim to kill. But if you want to learn more on the matter there is a book called!! On Killing!! and its all about that kind of stuff

Why shoot to kill ? Why not shoot to immobilize ? Nicking an artery can happen, but hey - the guy's got better chances to live if his brains are not splattered everywhere.

I believe the thief might have been using an empty gun, replica or toy gun.

there's actually a phenomenon known as confrontational tension/fear (ct/f) that kicks in when people have firearms and they cannot make themselves shoot to kill. It happens a lot with petty thieves like this. I'm a sociologist so I felt like I had to explain

People also use fake guns a lot, fear of a bullet is just as useful as a bullet itself.

Some people can mentally handle being shot at. Almost nobody can handle someone rushing at you with a weapon.

I don't know.....    
If I was holding a gun and someone was running at me with a machete, I'm pretty sure I'd just shoot them.

Shoot.
Shoot again.
Shoot again.
Shoot again.
Shoot again.
Shoot again.

6 shots in the common gun. So long as you aim for the head or chest, there's no way they'd keep going. So long as you empty your entire round into them, even if you didn't hit the chest or head, they won't have the energy to swing a machete hard enough to do real damage.

If you missed all 6 shots, then well, you probably shouldn't be owning a gun in the first place.

My friend sold an airsoft SMG to his sister's boyfriend.

He gave it to another friend, who used it to rob a 7/11.
