Please, if we are ever in combat, do not pull a gun. I will feed it to you through the new mouth I carve out in your neck.
If we are in cqb, and you are face to face with me, do you think I am going to pull it, go into a weaver stance, and say "Freeze!"?
In that fictional scenario, I am going to pull the weapon, hold it next to my body, and fire many, many rounds into you. If we are close enough, you won't even see the weapon, because it will never leave my hip.
A COMPETENT FIREARMS INSTRUCTOR WILL TEACH THIS METHOD IN A SELF DEFENSE COURSE. I wish I could remember the name of it, so I could link a video, but for the life of me, I can't. (I remember how it's done though!) Any of you pro-gun guys want to help me out here? My memory ain't what it used to be.
