I applaud your confidence in your martial arts skill. Without knowing what martial art you have been trained in, I would suggest you drop your confidence level down... Marines are trained in hand to hand, but it's a last resort. When someone has a gun pointed at you, even if you are lightning fast, the time it takes for them to pull the trigger is faster than you performing a disarm move.

I worked in Law Enforcement in the military and was taught to never point my weapon at someone with a gun unless they pointed it at another individual. The problem is, your reaction time is based off their actions. Once they decide to point the weapon at someone, you are already at a disadvantage because they know their next course of action and you don't.

Not to mention, most people tense up when being "attacked," so to speak. For example, guy has a gun pointed at you, telling you not to move. You decide to disarm him. As you hit his gun, his natural reaction, without thinking, is to grasp down harder on the gun, which means trigger pull.

The odds of an unarmed man disarming another individual without getting wounded are very, very slim. I also think it's too easy to become overconfident in one's abilities.

Once the fires start in an urban shtf event. Things get much more difficult.

Choking gas and fumes and debris make even being outside a hazard without a respirator.

I would call my wife and tell her to stay in the house, lock all doors and windows, close all curtains, find an item that could be used as a weapon and then hide upstairs somewhere until I can make my way home.

I wouldn't risk getting shot/blown up for 30 miles on foot, that would be hell. It would be safer if I stayed in my office building with others and barricaded that up. Safety in numbers and all.

sounds good to me
. i know better than mess with a guy like you. you've got more experience and more knowledge in your pinky than i have in my whole body.

personally, my only use for a gun when the SHTF is for hunting small game and defense. a .22 and a 9mm are all i need.

Time to channel the runner, Phidippides,........run 26 miles and walk the last 5.
Plan B would have been to store a foldable Montague Paratrooper bike at work.

Nice resume', the school of hard knocks is an excellent, albeit cruel teacher!
Some folks just do not understand that youth and exhuberance will never overcome age and treachery.
Just look at that little island we call England, not the biggest or best but not one you'd wanna tangle with.
Your resume' gives you something schools cannot give, FEAR and how to handle it.
Sure I have been submerged, seen flashing lights and sirens going off in my ears but, the real stomach dropping fear of mortality was never there in a controlled environment.
I understand you I think, Some see you as cocky, I see you as confident.
