What would you do if you were disarmed?
However unthinkable. However unlikely. However implausible. No matter how much you think it couldn't/wouldn't/shouldn't happen.
What would you do if you were in a situation where you drew your gun, or were in the process of drawing your gun to respond to a threat, and the bad guy was able to take it from you?
Kick , punch , bite, stab, scratch ect. till BG was down and out or I was dead.

Figure we would have to be HtH, so it would be a no holds barred fight to the finish. Someone wouldn't be moving at the end. Can't say who, but I'd do everything I could to make it the BG.
Procrastinators are the leaders of tomorrow.
If he can get it away from me - he wins.
My job is to see he does not.
In a H2H struggle over my gun, I would probably try to drop the mag on him. He still has one in the chamber, but he might not know that, and I might be able to make him miss one shot.
Before or after I started crying and pee'd on myself?
A couple options:
Run like H&LL, screaming like a banshee, and hope the BG is too distracted to figure out the manual-of-arms to get a good shot quickly enough to make you bleed.
Run OVER him, screaming like a banshee, and hope the BG is too distracted to figure out the manual-of-arms before he decides you're too crazy to mess with.
Who knows, you may knock him off-balance enough (mentally and/or physically) to regain the lead. (Can you say, OODA? I knew you could!) Worth a try - beats pee-ing on yourself.

Why do I use 230 gr. for my .45acp?
Because I can't find a source of 250 gr!
Stop drop and roll! I've got this crazy leg whip technique from back in my karate days. I actually splintered a sparring partner's shin while we were in Okinawa. He had been doing well, and I mis-judged his reaction speed--he never saw this coming, and never moved. He did get light duty for a couple months though. I was without a sparring partner for a long time after that. (this is what I would do--running would only get me shot in the back).
I figure if he has gotten control of my gun, we are probably in a grappling type situation, and I believe I will probably be more familiar with the manual of arms of my pistol than he will be. If it doesn't work, well, things already went from 'bad to worse'...it was worth a try.
