    Does anyone have the full video? I lost my old link. It shows how concealed weapons can be in hair, hooks in a hat, weights in a hat, etc. It also covers the 21 foot rule and how people can still close the distance quickly.

    Considering that a lot of people can barely manage to hit a paper target at 21 ft with their pistol it doesn't shock me that it would be difficult to score a lethal shot to a charging attacker. Read the book "Rogue Warrior" about the formation of Seal Team 6 and how his guys could hardly hit a moving target when they first formed.

    21 feet is not a realistic distance, more like within 5-10 so if someone gonna ambush you with a knife, as a ccw or cop your best bet would be to hip carry and draw point shooting from the hip as fast as you can , might sustain a cut of stab anyway but it's about all you can do if you can't just run away

    And these videos are in open, well-lit areas, no rain, only one assailant not moving around, his hands visible, zero distractions, no gun, and the officer is totally prepared.

    It's so obvious that thugs are deadly, even from 30 feet. They could put 10 rounds in you in 5 seconds. The average person is so stupid, they think a cop can control 2 or 3 or MORE people at night with their hands not visible, in close quarters and moving around agitatedly.

    Saw this video while in the Police Academy years ago and it is quite accurate. Dan Inosanto is extremely knowledgeable, has been used as an expert witness. I believe his testimony and demonstration during an officer's trial resulted in an acquittal. Someone with very basic knife skills can pose a very serious threat to L.E.O.'s.
