Posted by johnelmore: So a young well trained sprinter can cover about 30 feet in a little over 1 second.
As Frank pointed out, Tueller demonstrated that a person can cover 21 feet in a second and a half. And he was not testing well trained sprinters.

A runner will cover the first 7 yards at a much faster rate than the next 93.

One second? Probably 15 feet.

Not good, if it takes the defender 1.5 seconds to draw and fire.

We need also to realize that if an attacker with and edge weapon has closed the distance before he is shot, he will have had the capability to inflict a serious wound.
