Fight /using or trying firearm response is last option or no option if professionals are involved. If there is some kind of perceived threat , Bulletproof vehicle is first priority to escape the situation.
This is just my view and not any kind of suggestion.

Look at it this way.
If you’re rich or important enough to be riding around in a bullet proof car, the bad guys are probably going to use an RPG or Milan on your car. I think the OP wanted a response from aam admi type of situation...😉

Self defence and only be properly done when one has proper knowledge of law and how to handle weapon under pressure.
Just keep gun in holster and roming with it on your waist doesn’t not help there should be constant Practice with the gun every month with minimum of 50-100 rounds , which shall include safety precautions , presence of mind , and knowledge of arms act and self defence law .
I totally agree with you sir. In common practice carrying a handgun is a luxury which only 1/2% of Indian can afford ( may be less in percentage). But in present situation every person in India is exposed to the threat from criminals. As of now we do not have access to modern self defense equipments ( non fire arms type). May be in future we will have that privilege.

Limited numbers? LOL! Only for well connected elites you mean to say? Already, this is the norm, so no need to worry about a benevolent licensing policy. Just watch out for the illegal ones....no stopping them.

Who will qualify this need? A right to protect your life and property is a basic right. How can you deny anyone a license.

Are you implying more arms license will lead to more murders??? Please clarify

An Arms license would be of no use to a dead person.

Hmm... if I had to charge at someone with my weapon, that means I'm escalating the situation much farther than it needs to be. And if I'm charging than that means it 's going to be so much harder to present my case in court in the event of any situation.

You are right license holder is always seen as criminal.
Arms can only be used in rarest to rarest moments which should be recorded in cctv and there should be witness to such incidents .

If used like that with no proper threat or recording of the footage one is bound to get in trouble more than the criminal who wanted to harm us .

Sorry for replying late as I missed this discussion. But after all the discussion my only conclusion is in a self defense situation without a valid firearms, bullet proof vehicle and lots of training a common Indian citizen is as helpless as we were in British Raj or in the era of Maharajas. No changes except the numbers in the calendar. May be in coming days we will see better situation.

Yes, can't agree more with you about the vulnerability of common people. Hopefully, in our lifetimes, we may just see some change.

Regards.
