I have been in a situation where I was disarmed and standing between my
gun barrel and a bunch of innocent bystanders, and it is not something I can
reccommend, but at least the perp was stupid enough to look when I
said "the safety is still on"......on a revolver, I don't think he even
saw my fist connect with the side of his head before I drove him into
the floor as two others hit him from behind, they couldn't shoot because
of me and the civillians behind me.
He was not known to be a violent threat and had never been known to handle firearms,
but at this event he tried to take me out with my own revolver.
I used to shoot "Service Pistol" Matches using Revolver and Semi Auto Pistols
and I was involved for many years with IPSC shooting too, I have used both
"DUTY" and "SPORTING" Holsters and my times are not that far apart either,
I will point out that in 2000 I was the SSAA Queensland IPSC (Modified) Champion.
I have NEVER liked the idea of having to draw down on another human being,....BUT....
if there are options of going home at the end of a long shift after completing an
"Officer Involved Shooting" report and ending up on a slab in the Morgue...........
I'll take the paperwork every time.
- How to win a "Street Fight."
- The need to be ready to kill.
- When you can't walk away.
- Why injury doesn't stop some folks.
