not here in Oklahoma. If the DA rules it was a good shoot (self defense) then you are immune from civil lawsuit by the perp.

The only problem with that is you still have to hire an attorney. Hopefully your insurance will cover that if you have that coverage, but don’t take anything for granted.

@RETOKSQUID , I agree with you, but the journey can sometimes be a rough road. I had an employee several years ago that did everything correctly and still had a hard time. He had carry insurance, I don’t remember which company. That’s why they tell us, “stay smart “
True, unfortunatly the wife and I have already been through the legal ringer due to a shooting way before CC insurance was a common thing. Was not fun in any way shape or form, and we were fortunate to have only had to spend 2 grand that we didn't really have at the time. Know of a few folks that have had to spend ten times that amount.

My employee ran up a bill close to 100 grand. His wife was fired ( due the shooting and the bad image it gave her employer?) and my employee was away from work so much, we had to replace him, and naturally with the publicity, it took him a pretty good while to eventually be employed at a level to what he had with us.

Actions always have consequences, and some are just not that pleasant.
