If a close combat conflict is going to happen, I decided aftering attending some Krava Maga Knive and Gun courses, that a good jab (weak hand) or if a knive attack a good kick with your (left foot, that is if your right hand is your strong side) is just as important in a close combat situation. I can't even think about having to rack one into the Chamber while all that is going down.
When I carry my Bersa .380 in a pocket holster, I have it loaded with the decocker on, meaning the safety is off but the hammer is down, thus having a longer safer trigger pull. So if you see a guy at a gun range throwing a left jab, then shooting from the hip, dat-b-me....
I only do a front kick, dry fire at home, not going to try that move with live fire at an indoor range.
