    Hence the "Get the fuck off the X" concept.

    But this is comforting, since I'm generally the one with the knife on campus, since campus carry is a nono here.

    Very true, I've tried shoot the Tueller drill with a running target in 2 sec, no way could I reliably clear my cover garment and fire. With an open vest of jacket it would be better, and even without a cover garment it was challenging. Just remember....MOVE

    And thats with the officer anticipating the attack. What happens if the officer is just eatin a donut or talking to someone, when they are most off guard?

    I think that a cc permit is most useful if someone ever cornered you and was about to jump you. But then again what person just runs up to a complete stranger just to stab them and run off?

    not an owner now, but looking to be. thankfully, florida is easy with the concealed carry licensing.

    They're still good videos to have if you ever have to defend yourself in court.

    That video was showing distances greater then most any mugging would be.

    :ugh: To all the cowboys that think they can quick draw an attacker that has a weapon already brandished.

    So what have we learned?

    Be aware of your surroundings.
    When in danger, MOVE.
    Practice, practice, practice, practice, and practice MORE. Practice firing with your off-hand, from all kinds of positions/situations, at all kinds of targets.

    Proficiency is key.

    Humans tend to have the "deer in the headlight" reaction when first presented with a situation.. you tend to freeze. Break yourself of it. It will take some re-learning & all, but it's worth it.

    EDIT: And a little hand-to-hand training, regardless of how awesome you think you are with your gun, is ALWAYS a good thing.

    I know of at least one who could. Bob Munden :) And not only could he hit the guy, he could hit him with all 6 bullets.
    too bad they took his youtube video down.

    But really be aware of your surroundings hopefully won't get caught in that position.

    That is until he has to draw from underneath a jacket or other normal conceal garment. Sure I can draw a LOT faster out of an IPSC handgun hanger "holster", but I don't ever wear one.

    Apparently Mr. Munden does that with 1911's at Gunsite as well. :)
    Damn, I should just buy the damn DVD.

    Worst video EVER. The cops didn't even try to dodge some fatass mall ninja clumsily charging at them. at 12 feet, you could leave your gun in its holster and sidestep/trip the attacker, then draw your gun and shoot his ass.
