    This guy did something extraordinary, it's hard to believe no one has ever heard of him.

    I agree, and I've mentioned it here before. The most recent time was last month when another member challenged any of us to come up with an account of a self-defense case history in which the ammunition in the defender's gun wasn't enough.

    I brought the Captain Davis case up, but indicated that one of the more, uh, eloquent accounts of it I've read of appears here:

    I've read about this guy somewhere before. I thought it was in Kirchner's book, "The Deadliest Men" (which contains sections on two women, oddly enough) but I just checked and it's not in there.

    I wonder if Ayoob covered this incident in one of his "Ayoob Files" articles and that's what I'm remembering.

    At any rate, definitely one cool and capable customer. I doubt there are more than a handful of men throughout history who have killed multiple persons with a short-bladed edged weapon in a face to face encounter--let alone 4 in a single encounter and fighting against 4 to 1 odds.
    It loses a lot being retold as if the author is a middle-schooler trying to prove he's really a high-schooler via the liberal and unnecessary use of vulgarities and obscenities.

    I see the mentioned "edged weapons" in the article as well.

    I remember reading a Confederate Medal of Honor (SCoH) citation about a single rebel sentry guarding a bridge who was accosted by a platoon size element of union troops. As they poured into the guard shack, he fired his musket's single shot through a couple of them, and attacked with a bowie knife, managing to kill like 14 or so federal troops with knife alone, whilst being shot, stabbed and cut multiple times himself, one slash rendering one of his hands pretty much useless.

    Granted that was military action and not civilian, it's amazing the perils that some endure.
