"If you're going to shoot, shoot."

Don't pull it if you're not going to use it. 

Time and again we are told that when it comes to self defense it is the defensive mindset that matters most.  If you're not willing to shoot someone don't pull a gun on them because they damned well might be willing to shoot you.

A gun is not a magic talisman that will make the bad man stop.  A gun is just a tool, and if you don't know how to use it or use it incorrectly someone will get hurt.  The linked story is the perfect example of that.

The comments make interesting reading.

Excellent point... If you're in extremis enough to draw it, you BETTER be using it... and NOT to fire a warning shot either!

NFO-Agreed, this rash of warning shots lately has been driving me nuts.
