    Don't hit at all if it is honorably possible to avoid hitting; but never hit soft!

    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Great write-up ppk - and well demonstrates just how the distance can be covered so fast. Plus too the possibility of ''fumble factor'' under stress.

    Good write up. This scenario was covered in an advanced pistol class I took. Eye opening! The instructor used the phrase " Proximity defeats skill" as shown in that vid posted above. Thx for sharing.

    Practice drills are good to do but the truth is real life is seldom the same as the practice drill. For one thing, in a practice drill both sides know whats going to happen and when, therefore, you are ready for it. Just think of how it would be if the attack was a total surprise and you had no idea when or what the person would do. The best training would be Inspector Clouseau drills and have someone attack you when you least expect it, at any give time, during a 24 hour day. Of course, that could cause alot of damage as we all know.

    The video " Edged Weapons " will really give you an idea of just how fast an attacker can be on top of you from 21 feet. Have your weapon at the ready,... you'll need it.

    Agree, I know a lot of folks feel the need for a manual saftey, but in a crisis it could prove deadly.

    Great write up & glad to see you are thinking outside the normal relam of just shooting at static targets.

    Was it a pointy stick? My mom always warned me about playing with those. She said someone could get an eye put out!

    It wasn't a pointy stick, but it felt sharp enough sticking me when I didn't take my safety off. Hey, you gave me an idea though, next time we'll use scissors.

    Force Science Research Center Study

    Here is a great study by the Force Science Research Center on reaction times in a lethal force encounter.

    This is a link to a downloadable PDF of the article that ran in Police Marksman magazine Sept/Oct 2003.
