    Bring a knife to a gunfight is not as bad as might think. Try getting your gun out and in business before he gets you if your under 25 feet away.
    And knives don't run out of bullets.

    untrained maybe. Trained? Not a chance.

    all I have to do is alter your trajectory while your mid movement to have enough time to draw under 25 feet.

    Everybody thinks their trained, until they figure out they weren't trained enough.

    Can’t argue with you on that. But there’s times when I can.

    0-25 feet is a big difference vs let’s say 0-5 feet.

    according to my USCCA training, most assaults take place with in 10 feet of you. at 25 feet, you have at the very least 2 options..

    1) run

    2) get ready to fight (shoot'em)

    i practice the 10 feet drills. personal awareness is paramount to survival.

    be a "blind" person to your surroundings is only allowing the thugs to strike.

    That close, a gun is out of the question, get ready to fight.
    Guns are only and insurance plan, no guarantees.
    Many people have been shot multiple times and show no sign of giving up the ghost.
    Running backwards while under duress and struggling to get an auto pistol in the game brings a lot of variables.
    I've shot deer with the 375H&H that stood there and looked at me for their last 53 seconds of life.
