    Exactly, which brings me back to training. Quality combative training would have taught him to transition to his sidearm, if not reload his shotgun while staying focused on the perp.
    As we used to teach in the spook business, carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it you may shoot it. If you shoot it you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody - and he finds out about it - he may be very angry with you. -- Jeff Cooper
