Just a word of caution: Anytime you pull out a gun or a knife the situation you WERE in is gone because the everything just escalated and it's a whole new ballgame. Meaning, once you pull anything you better be prepared to do something with it, and whatever you decide to do better work, otherwise it's likely game over.
That's why it is so vitally important to be proficient in your chosen self defense technique.
Agreed.... first thing i was told when i took my ppct/baton/weapon defense course was, if you pull a knife, expect to get cut... Im still looking for an actual knife fighting / GAGE course here is calgary... and yea, practice is key....
