    21 foot rule? Please elaborate. Is that the law in your state?

    I'm not jarhead, but it has been well established that an average man can cover a distance of 21 feet before you can draw and fire your gun. There are numerous drills to illustrate and confirm this.

    It takes about 1.5 seconds to draw and fire, and a man can cover 21 feet in the same time. That's one thing that puzzled me a bit in the initial post. If you've got 1.5 seconds to draw and fire, that's one shot, you've got 1.5 seconds (21 feet) to get out of the way.

    One of the 21 foot rule caveats is that when you do fire the attacker is on top of you so you need to use motion with the draw and fire to get off the line of attack.

    I'm not sure how many times I can repeat myself in one thread.
