I am charged with two counts of pointing and showing a

I am charged with two counts of pointing and showing a pistol and one count of illegal transport of a weapon across state line in South Carolina. All three charges came from a pick up truck pulling up behind me after we had words and the driver getting out of the truck and walking toward my car in front of him at a stop light. I was blocked in by other cars and could not move. I showed him my gun and told him to get back into the truck. I believe it was self defense. I also suffer from Post Tramatic Stress Disorder from three tours in Viet Nam. Trying to decide between a Public Defender or hire a lawyer. Can you suggest either of these. Also what can I expect to be charged for the lawyer if I decide to hire one? Thanks, ***** *******, Myrtle Beach, SC.
