Charlie Askins described the "belly gun" as one where:
"You press it against your opponent's belly and pull the trigger."
He was active in a different time and place, now I wonder if his definition is still acceptable, and if there is such a thing as "Too Close".
Charles askins, as well as jeff cooper and many of the other old time writers were cold blooded killers, that was what they did. their job, their reason.

I read a jeff cooper remark about how he capped a german soldier as he was destroying equipment at a place that the americans had taken. Shot him in the head as he disabled machinery, rather than taking him prisoner.

maybe there were people who thought of it in his way, it's reasonable.

Those guys were literally scary and disturbing. I shy away from any advice that seems contrary to modern thinking.
