This may be a long shot, but I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction.

I'm interested in statistics on the actual legal consequences of a CCW holder shooting someone in self defense. Criminal and/or civil litigation as well as the outcome (conviction, exoneration, plea, out of court settlement) would be great.

I would imagaine that if any such data existed it would include only incidents that generated a police report, and that's fine.

Any ideas?

Massad Ayoob has written quite extensively on the outcomes of defensive shootings by non peace officers. You might contact him at Lethal Force Institute.
