Well that was some riveting video. Definitely good work on the officers part. It was a spontaneous and shocking moment yet he still had the situational awareness to spot the other guy running towards him and then drawing a bead on him. He was smarter than the first guy and stopped in his tracks. Lucky for him he didn't take a bullet as well. Not a smart move to rush the cop.

Excellent anticipation and reactions in a armed confrontation. Notice how the officer places his hand on his weapon as the perp is walking away with his right hand obscured. No doubt the officer anticipated a potential confrontation. As the perp raises his (now armed) right hand the officer tells him "don't do that" while raising HIS left arm to deflect the perp's gun. He immediately assesses the life threatening situation for what it is and fires his service revolver to incapacitate the assailant. The other possible BG then enters the scene and the officer shows excellent restraint at not firing at that now advancing but unarmed individual. He clears he scene behind the truck and circles around to remove the perp's weapon from the area.

Good shoot. Clean shoot. Drinks on me.

Cop did a good job of keeping himself alive. In some of the other showings of this you can see the BG reaches into his jacket as he is stepping off the porch but doesn't follow through with it. I'm guessing he was waiting for a better opportunity. A better opportunity that didn't quite work out for him!

I think the LEO had a gut feeling it was going to go bad. It's remarkable that putting a hand up will cause someone to hesitate shooting. The bad guy clearly had the drop on the LEO and could have ended it if he pulled the trigger. The LEO was able to capitalize on that indecision and put the thug on the ground. He fell back on his tactical training and noticed the second assailant coming at him from the blind side. You don't get a better video of a good shoot. Glad the LEO was able to walk away.

Practice makes perfect. As is the case with most defensive shootings, they are so close that sights are useless and he who gets off the first shot is the winner. A good reason to practice draw and point shooting from the hip.

Firstest with the mostest is not nessicary the fastest. Lead on target. Training and practice, practice your training.
