    Hey I'm just going off your comment that you were "Trying to save a Life", I gave you the way how to. What you do, or in this case don't do, with it is your choice.

    Out of the hand? This isn't a Western.

    Waiting for him to point it at me is far different than waiting for him to take aim. If he were pointing it at someone else I would shoot. If he was not pointing the weapon at anyone, then I wouldn't shoot.

    That's different than the scenario described. The scenario described was that the subject was simply in possesion of a firearm. I would not shoot unless there were a threat and simply possessing a firearm is not a threat. Taking aggressive action with a firearm in your possession could very well be a threat.

    I suggest you head on down to like Bass Pro and check them out. Lay some down beside some real guns, then tell me that if I were 10 to 20 feet away you would tell the difference and make a shoot don't shoot decision in a split second.
    Some BB guns do, most do not. Most airsoft guns do. I don't understand why this is arguable.

    So? That's not what I was asked and answered.
