Frankly you have not lost much tactically if it starts shooting. If someone comes in as an active shooter you are going to have to hope that other targets distract the shooter long enough for you to act.

Aside from being able to react, and move as you act, I'm not really certain one can prepare well for this. Some situations are just going to go badly in the end.

Mainly I was thinking of a force on Force scenario with someone who gets violent as they enter (drunk or drugs or whatever). I know people have gotten upset here when you mention the need for training how to react to a hands on situation...but that is something I would look for. If someone is actually going hands on. It is a close proximity drill and it probably will end badly. There are certainly videos on YouTube of someone needing and not having in a situation kind of like above. Plenty of videos of them having them too.
