fire (an already 'on him" gun) standing start, but he aint taking more than ONE step before I start putting holes in his chest. Why are you just STANDING there, confronting an attacker at such a close range, hmm? START 'making space', getting to cover, getting OBSTACLES between him and you. that's the only sensible thing to do, and your PRACTICE shooting should nearly ALL involve shooting while you move, AT movers(with the handgun, that is) and a fair amount of your rifle shooting should, too. Just because you have a rifle, DOESN'T mean you wont be using it at 5m and less, ya know. Inside buildings, or thick cover (at night) such ranges are the RULE, not the exception(if you want RELIABLE HITS, instead of just NOISE, that is.
