Can You Outdraw an Attacker?

Knowing at what distance a person becomes a threat is important for a good self-defense mindset. Here's a reality check.

Situational awareness is a key part of a good self-defense mindset, but do you have your personal space limits calibrated correctly. With a gun on your hip, you might feel like you can protect yourself from an attacker, but when should you move into a draw posture? Does that shady looking person 25 feet away constitute a threat? If they chose to attack you, could they close that distance before you could clear the handgun from your holster and fire even a quickly aimed shot? Do you practice your quick-draw enough to meet such a threat? This video from handgun instructor Tom McHale gives you a reality check when it comes to your quick-draw.
