I have preached this many times to my wife and others. Most uses of a firearm to defend yourself will in most cases be a distance between 3-6 ft. The guy on tv showed a few different methods to shield yourself from attack at same time pulling and firing your weapon into a silhouette about 3ft away. Don't know if any clubs, organizations will teach this or even allow it to be done at their range but I feel it is something that needs attention brought to mind. If you are lucky enough to have a distance of say 20-25 ft and you feel the threat level has just gone RED/CRITICAL you should be able to defend yourself but if the bad guy is right on top of you how do you handle that. Myself with current health issues could not withstand an assault from a girl scout or even a cub scout. How to train or just stay at home with the door locked?
