All the more reason to shoot from Retention, no one can decide that you are going to fight them and if someone is on top of you like that with hostile intent, it's time to draw your weapon. You have no obligation to let someone beat on you with their fists just because they aren't armed.My only complaint about this video (and others like it) has to do with senior citizens. Seems that all of them assume you're young and fit. How about those of us who are 75+ and definitely not in our prime? I've managed to adapt somewhat, but there's no way I can toe to toe with some 30 something attacker.
You used the "Force Continuum" , hopefully if it escalated you'd have drawn the gunI've posted this before, will make the story short. had a drunk/druggie grab me outside a auto parts store. I caught him with
a very solid elbow after not being able to just jerk away from him. Point to this is I was carrying and never even had a thought
about going for my gun...was like I was not even carrying it, don't get too bogged down in the hand to hand fight and forget
you have a gun.
In this case there was no reason to pull it anyway but I wonder how long it would have taken if I was being beat on to
get past the "duh" moment and recognize I could have a problem here.
