    If the BG has ever seen even a few movies, if you say 'Go ahead, punk, make my day!" should make him rethink his chosen career.

    Knife's drawn, verbal statements of desire to kill have been uttered, and the assailant is advancing in complete disregard to a drawn defensive firearm? Pretty simple response, really: use whatever means required by the assailant to immediately eliminate the threat.

    Warning shot are for cops and guys who play cops in the movies. 3-4 CM move away from target while assessing the threat from a distance.

    And just so there is no misunderstanding (I hope), Gary, I agree with you. Self defensive actions would seem to be in order... quickly.

Unless there was a known good backstop in just the right place, racking the slide is more likely than a warning shot to "prove" it is loaded.
    Do you really think that warning shots and/or racking the slide in the middle of an armed, violent encounter are good ideas?

    You really should invest in some professional defensive firearm training, for your sake. Tactical Defense Institute would be a great, local place. Not affiliated with TDI, BTW.

    i'd shoot'em, when I carry a gun I am -dead- sure that it is loaded with good ammo. The rest of my guns are unloaded to the point that I am anal about them being unloaded and cleaned even when not fired

    There was a San Diego Police Officer once, back in the days before body armor was not commonly used by police, that responsed to a man with a knife call on a pier in San Diego. He arrived to discover a man with a butcher knife running at civilians, trying to stab them. The officer from about 100 feet away from the guy pulled his duty weapon, a colt .357, and ordered the guy to drop the knife. The bad guy put the knife over his head in a stabbing position and ran full bore at the officer. The officer emptied his weapon into the guy, all rounds center mass, but still ended up getting cut by the knife in the shoulder, because although the guy had died en route, his momentum kept him going enough to reach and cut the officer.

    probably that, and probably some fixation on the gun as the solution("when all you have is a hammer...") due to lack of good H2H training...who knows.

    Given what I know about the Tueller Drill I would have shot - no question. I think it is crazy to carry a gun that doesn't have one in the pipe and even crazier to fire a warning shot.
