I used to train to put 2 in the chest and 1 in the head. I have since started training to put at least 4 shot COM and then hold and assess. Also, spread your COM shots out a hair. We were told in training that close groupings are not ideal. If you shoot the same vital organ twice, it is still only one vital organ hit. There is plenty to hit COM to justify a few inch spread in the shooting. I never thought about the pelvic shot, but that seems to be a valid option as well...

First off, I have to thank all who have gave there opinions.

I was not just being creative (Troll), as to show a real (In my world, of Las Vegas) situation that I face in a big city, and I've had two to one without a gun (Those [people] won, but they didn't kick my butt).

Now granted, I don't live in the bad area's.

I have to go to those place's from time to time that are very undesirable. And yes, I should have a hand cannon with a million shot's, (Not an Uzzi. But a S&W 327 .357mag 8 shot revolver, or a CZ75B 16+1 which I own, the big heavy lugs) Also, I can't carry a M16.

I just gave a scenario of a which one on one I have delt with in my 42 years.

I have been in life threatening situations without a gun, but i can only go so far without proper SD.

TBS, I'm fairly well travaled, and my best defense has been my brain.

And retreating when armed is the best option!

Thank you CCW class.
