I didn't watch it for fear of flashbacks

I had two come in from behind my left shoulder, both 100 pounds or so and both in a flat-out charge. I didn't hear 'em until they were within 30 feet and didn't see them until they were at about 20... started shooting immediately and the first one decided 'no deal' when he was about five feet out with four holes in his chest & shoulders. He was DRT before he got 15 feet into his retreat. I had hair and blood on my pants leg afterward.

If I'd have screwed around a half-second longer either me or one of the three kids standing around me would have gotten mauled.
“Nine-tenths of tactics are certain, and taught in books: but the irrational tenth is like the kingfisher flashing across the pool, and that is the test of generals. It can only be ensured by instinct, sharpened by thought practicing the stroke so often that at the crisis it is as natural as a reflex.” ~ T. E. Lawrence
