dittybopper: BetterMetalSnake: iheartscotch: HawgWild: Huh. Guess you CAN bring a knife to a gun fight ...When they train cops to deal with knifes; the trainers say that a guy with a knife within 20 feet of a guy with a gun can kill the guy with the gun. If you think about it; most fit adults can run 20 feet in 3 to 5 seconds; some are even faster./ Granted, the mama Boo Boos of the world is probably come in around the 10-12 second mark.Originally came in to make a joke about responsible knife ownership. Then I read your comment and was reminded of some police training my dad shared when I was a kid. Police (back in the day, at least) were trained to respect a knife at close range. They can be deadly when used by the right person, or by a lucky wrong person. Guns can be slightly less useful at those ranges and if it is your only tool, you're gonna have a bad day.It's called the "Tueller Drill".Basically, if someone is inside a certain radius, usually given as 21 feet, you can't unholster, present, and fire a handgun before that person, armed with a knife, could stab you.
