draw and hit each of the 3 ONCE in 3 secnods, too. If the draw and first hit is not timed (ie, you see them, but they dont see you)it's POSSIBLE that you will get all 3 before they can dive for cover, if they are pretty stupid and inept, your first shot brains the leader, etc. Far better, however, to be braced around cover, and get all 3 hits in 2 seconds or less. The 8" A zone used by IDPAis bs, for such ranges, basically. If they are that far away, any hit to the torso, with a truly effective pistol load, given the element of surprise and your having cover, will almost certainly suffice. With the larger target of the torso, you can hit them faster, too.
