my uncle did this to me at sams club about a month before i got my permit he only held it for a sec or two but it was long enuff for me to pull my kershaw leek. glad he let go or he would of had a ouchie, but the thought of it being a "buddy" never crossed my mind, just animal instincts of somebody is touching me and shouldn't be
First, I'm not going to stay in a fight if I don't have to. If he has let me go to the point where I feel I can get away I'm going to run like the dickens!!
I'm also not going to put away or lose a weapon I have in hand for something else. I already have a knife out, taking time to put that away and draw a gun might be time I don't have. I MIGHT transfer it to weak hand (if I drew it strong hand to begin with) and draw a firearm in addition to the knife but that is also going to take a lot of time and opportunity I might not have.
If he let me go and is running I'm going to be running too.. in the opposite direction. If he let me go only briefly and is immediately attacking again I might not have time or the opportunity to get to another defensive tool and have no other choice but to continue fighting with a knife. In which case I'm going to continue working disabling and blood cuts until one of us is dead or he decides I'm not worth the blood loss.
If I get enough distance or control to draw a gun but can't get away I might bring it into the fight but that really does depend on what is going on.
