    that make the rest of 'us' (or them) look bad.

    Personally, what I teach and what I would do in a situation (or rather, what I'd like to think I'd do, since you don't really know what you'd do until it happens) is the following:

    If you draw your firearm to defend yourself, it's a life or death situation. It's the last resort.  You've made the decision that there's nothing else you can do (barring Castle Doctrine scenarios, which I won't discuss here) and you have an immediate threat to your life (or your loved ones' lives.) You 'clear leather' because you've run out of options.

    What the diarist did when it comes to plinking from his house doesn't fall in to the self defense scenario. If you're not shooting in self defense, what I mentioned above doesn't apply. If you're out target shooting, you aren't looking to defend yourself (and likewise, with hunting.)
