You just need more training. I've been attacked with weapons and outnumbered and panicking just didn't occur to me.
I once had an ex-husband determined to kill me. Came at me with an ax. I locked myself in the bedroom and he started hacking at the door. I calmly got my .22, sat on the bed and waited.
He was 6'4 and bug nuts crazy. Once he managed to get through the door I pointed the gun at him, steady with both hands, looking through my front sites. He immediately backed down, stepped back through the door, dropped the ax and began to whine and plead about how "mean I was to him".
To tell the truth, I don't even remember if the .22 was loaded but it sure made a good deterrent.
I don't live my life in fear and I won't die trembling or cowering in fear. Does take training though.
As far as calling 911...I wouldn't bother. At least in Oklahoma you can be getting hacked to pieces but if you scream the cops here will arrest you for disturbing the peace.

First you send out your berserker storm troopers to have a little fun with the ladies, and then you use this as the very excuse to put soldiers on the streets. The preparations are under way, the end game is afoot.
Berlusconi said the rapes "can't be blamed on poor security" and said "there has been a drop in all major street crimes".
well, at least those with clear minds will have a chance then. oh, did i mention that i don't trust statistics ?

Rome has always been one of the safest large cities in europe, especially for women.
The recent rapes/murders perpetrated by illegal immigrants have freaked out the populace. Apparently they don't take violent brutal attacks against defenseless women in stride like most of the rest of the world does.
