I'd do my best to keep a hand on the weapon, at least pointing the muzzle away from me or vital areas. that while doing my best to touch the back of his skull through the eye socket with the thumb that isn't trying to control the weapon.

+1 real fights are ugly. I say in training that everyone has a plan until they get punched in the nose. Food for thought though, I think a lot of people think they can fight or "take" a guy and are not true to themselves about their fighting skill in a situation like Lima posted.

I've ranted before about how I believe if you carry a gun you should have an unarmed skillset. It could be detrimental to introduce a handgun in a close quarters confrontation.
I've been training in CDT (Compliance. Direction, Takedown) for 10 years now. It focuses on non deadly force and last resort disarms using pain compliance. It is the most effective system I have ever seen. You really don't need to break wood and do flying kicks to fight. Think about wrist locks, joint locks,arm bars, and pressure points.
For some the best bet might be to run away very fast.
Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.

Obviously, we would all try to not let that happen, but the hypo states that it did, we lost our gun to the BG. Now what? I think that the only thing to do is to immediately attack with all of your force and skill. Depending upon where you are yelling at the same time might help. I think running is a bad option, unless cover is very close.
All in all, a very bad situation to be in.

I have taken a Krav Maga class and got one of the greatest workouts of my life.I suggest that everybody take a least 1 class. Check out International Krav Maga Federation. Offiical Site. They are several branches of the KM tree. The attackers should never get that close but if they do KM is the way to go. KM was designed to help the Isreali Army. One of the great armies in the planet. For a small area on the map they take a beating everyday and keep coming back for more.

Yes. I think Sgt explained it far far more clearly than I. Speed and leverage is the key as well...wrestlers understand this...I didn't say do nothing...you can not let the BG get the weapon...period.

Attempt to keep a hand on my weapon, so the BG can't use it on me. Practice my foot stomps, knee to the groin and try to get my knife into play!

My Filipino martial arts instructor is also my firearms instructor, for all intents and purposes, and we do cover weapon retention and disarms.

If their that close you should increase the distance or leave the gun wear it is.
Once disarmed your choices are limited in that situation your better off giving them your wallet.

All I'll add is, if you dont have superior hand strength you dont have anything.
Spend all the time and ammo you want on the range, but when it gets ugly, your grip is what will save your life.

I disagree...In the situation that we've been discussing, he's done something threatening enough for us to draw our weapon. Somehow he's gotten it from us at this point, I don't see him being satisfied with just our wallet.

If you carry in Condition 3, you have two empty chambers. One in the weapon...the other between your ears.

I'm too fat to run, so they better beat me to death with an empty gun because that is the only way they are going to get their hands on it.

I carry a Colt Delta Elite 10mm in Milt Sparks VM2 with 2 extra magazines on my belt. This is normally worn on a belt under my bib overalls and works great for me. My wife carries a Walther PPS .40 w/Crossbreed holster.

It does bring up an interesting point...I wonder how many here have practiced this scenario with say a rubber gun or knife...now that is where you will learn the most...and see some of the points being made.

Those who have trained in LEO classes have done some type of weapon retention class. Get you a partner and a toy gun and a friend and see how long you CAN'T last.
