Some comments in slicing the pie/button hook/cross/whatever searching movement:
Try it around your house and other buildings and I noted
-The more you know about it, the better off you are in case you ever have to do this for real.
-This is effing dangerous
-If there are multiple bad guys, or the perp just gets a wild hit in, I die. BAD. A close range shooting could be a tie. Ties are still BAD. I want to WIN.
-Big final note: of course it's good to know how to do searching movement to maximize your odds, but unless there is a very good reason, I'd rather wait and let the cops go flush the perps out, or let them get bored and poke their heads out "Is the good guy gone? I haven't seen/heard him in a while" As the good guy, time is on MY side.
