Yea, while I think I instinctively saw that (hence my previous post and comments), I didn't really connect to that on an obvious basis.

I mean, if a gunfighter can't win a knife fight, then why have guns at all?... Right? So let's just BAN them and get it over with... Right?
I intend that analysis to sound humorously paranoid, but it makes you wonder...

I can understand the confusion. The speaker on the video isn't speaking American English and hence must be from anti-gun British or Scottish lands. The problem is, the accent isn't Brit or Scot.
From the looks, its a British/Scots vid, and their reactions are about what you would expect.
Check the original language that was translated into English.
It isn't Scottish or British English.
Obrona przed nozem przy uzyciu pistoletu jest niemozliwa na dystansie 2 metrow. Na dystansie 4 jest trudna. Na dystansie 6 i wiecej metrow jest bardziej prawdopodobna.
Did you follow the links?
I am guessing these are Slavic, but I don't know.

If you knew the BG had a knife and would maybe attempt to charge you, the key to help you survive if you are out in the open would be able to have room to manuever or back up to give yourself more time to draw and fire.
I would think that the majority of LEO's probably don't realize it could happen or either their adrenaline level is so high along with a loss of time that they get caught up in it and WHAM ! its over....
Thanx for the vid...

Would add one more item >>> with the BG's incoming momentum,would suggest that you shoot more than 1.
With the "limited"(?) capacity of my Kimber,I would shoot 3 very fast.
We train for these things, and with hand on weapon my 3 shots are finished in 1.2-1.5sec.(on a good day). I'm sure that the younger guys can improve on this. --------

Actually, that would make more sense. Post USSR, most of the Eastern Europen nations are less then ideally equipped to deal with gang-crime on the level they are experiencing.
