+1 On this! There is nothing that I wouldn't do to get away alive, turn cannibal, feel gush coming out of eye sockets, deep cuts from my knife, etc. It is on and I will not lay down without some serious injury on the BG up to my last exhalation.

Cut him high, wide, deep, low, long & continuously.
If I don't have a knife, I'll just do it another way.
I may die, but I'll be going out of this world in the same way I came into it: Screaming & covered in someone else's blood.

He might have the gun...but not my bug or my folding blade. One way or another he's going to bleed. I might as well...but I'm not going to stop fighting until I'm not breathing.

if he's that close, i'd punch him in the throat, knee him in the nuts, grab his hair and slam his head on my knee, recover my gun and shoot him if he moves before the cops show.

If I had no mode of escape (an option I would have taken before if possible), I would fight to regain my weapon... because your assumption almost dictates (at lest in my case) that he is literally in hand to hand combat distances.

THIS is a good reason to carry a BUG...

This is a very interesting subject. I was thinking the same thing when I wanted my fiance to get a CHL. This would be a very bad situation for a woman if she is not ready for it. I would say if you are a more smaller woman the best case would be to use some sort of mace or tazer to get some sort of distance between you and the attacker so you can get your gun back. For a man, fight til one of you isnt fighting anymore!

This would be a very bad situation for anyone.

The only real options I see are effective H2H methods, or perhaps use of a knife carried in a manner that allows very rapid access. My preference is for a small fixed-blade near the centerline (e.g. push-dagger, TDI, Clinch Pick, etc.).

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

Good point kenpo. I'm thinking more for a woman in that situation since I am struggling with the decision of encouraging my fiance to get her chl. I dont know what I would do with myself if someone took her weapon and used it on her or my children. This will be a long discussion with her very soon.
