It's like dodge ball for IDIOTS.
One of my local instructors does a thing to show how much time you really have to react. He makes sure everyone has an unloaded weapon, and then tells us that he will be walking the line 15 yards away while instructing, and do a running knife attack at random times, they are supposed the draw and dry fire at him when he charges. I don't like it as he is not an enemy, but it is a graphic demo of how fast it can happen. Seems silly and risky to me, but most of the class is gun clumsy.
I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I post it on Facebook.
