Indeed, there is no 21 foot rule, it is a DRILL, to prove a point. Do it once, then move on, and there is no need to for every trainee in a class to do it. One is enough, while everyone else watches. It is important to NOT ingrain this drill into anyone's repertoire of techniques! Anyone who is training to stand still, draw, and fire on an advancing adversary is training himself to die.

If you get within fifteen yards of me with a knife in hand, I want my gun in hand and sights superimposed on your chest or pelvic region, depending upon the distance and situation.

is a fancy name for crappy fighter
You have never lived until you have almost died. For those that have fought for it, life has a special flavor the protected will never know

I'm no expert--far from it. I CC a 380 and believe in strong situational awareness and point shoot. Obviously someone can be walking toward me and look perfectly sane but has bad intentions but I would think that my basic situational awareness and intelligence will "tell" me when that little 380 should be in the palm of my hand and not in my pocket. I chose the 380 because it is easy pocket, light, small and does fit in my palm without any obvious "overt printing". The original video, IMO, is ridiculous to be looking at--thank goodness this guy is behind his fenced-in backyard--he looks like a leaping idiot even if he is trying to make a point with his sword and knife. Based on what I saw in the video, as mentioned in previous replies, would have been met by me with several (or at least one) center mass 380s and certainly an avoidance motion by me to "get out of this idiot's way" as he rambled toward me like a maniac. Just me sayin.

In the "real world" I dont care who you are, your first brain activity when someone charges is "wow, this guy is charging me!"....cant help that thought, albeit a split second thought. Move before, or as, you draw.
