    I can only see it working out if you hand some out to everybody. Assuming that youre moving and theyre not in a line shooting at you, maybe moving to a position where one would be in anothers line of fire would take care of the closest..

    Would depend on the situation. Closest person will get the first shot. If I would have to expose my back to the first person to engage the others, I'd give BG 1 a second dose first.

    One thing to consider in this scenario is disparity of force. If you go along with the "everybody gets some" approach, you need to reevaluate after every shot. Once you've shot one or two BG's, disparity of force may not apply any more. Personally, I say take out the guy that scares me the most and go from there.

    Tap them all center mass and come back again while moving.

    Though I'm sure if it's ever brought to court, you can find more than enough expert witnesses (including Ayoob) who say's do all 3 and go back to evaluate. I don't believe disparity of force ends the second you pull the trigger on one of them as you still haven't assessed the threat.

    If I had to, I would and I'd pray my training and gun don't fail me.

    I would be hoping and praying that I left a extra set draws in my vehicle.

    I'd have to do the Jason Bourne thing in "Bourne Ultimatium" at the London train station where he takes out 3 guys in the little staircase, all while unarmed, Except for when he waps one guy in the head with his own weapon just before dismantling it.

    Tacman,

    As always it is dictated by the situation. Since my EDC is Glock there is no shortage of love to spread around. All armed with handguns so each is potentially an equal threat. As I move from the X can I stack them? Is there cover? I would attempt to stack them and engage them by one or two and cause chaos with their assault. Closest first, each gets some love all things being equal as I move laterally opposite their gun hand (its harder and slower to track to the outside). I carry a 357 Sig so it is enough gun that a solid hit will conceivably slow them down.

    It is a lot easier to prove disparity of force if all of have holes in them.

    Has anyone else other than Scott ever done a force on force drill with multiple well-armed attackers? I would love to hear how it went, and I'm betting the tough part wasn't deciding whether to go with Mozambique or El Presidente.

    The tough part is not getting hit in time to hit them.

    There's usually one guy that seems to be the most aggressive (the leader, usually). The idea is to take him out first. Human psychology being what it is, the followers will almost always lose some or all of their enthusiasm. If nothing else, it will buy you a moment or two of indecision/hesitation on their part. That might just be the edge you need.
