Thank you so much. I hope it cools off a little so I can have a dog shipped to me from LV.
No, it's not at all different. You eliminate the most obvious threat. You defend against the one you know can hurt you, then you assess the danger from the other threat. I know common sense isn't common, but the answer to this question should be pretty obvious. Even my brother the Democrat got it right.

Hey doc heres another situation for you. You are being attacked by 2 people.

One has a knife and is running towards you and the other has a gun. Which do you shoot first? Which one is the deadlier threat?

I need a distance. I also need a gender of the knife wielder.

Gender does not apply to this scenario

distance for gun: 30ft
Knife: 30ft and closing at a full sprint

It's nice to see someone having some 'common sense'

If the one with the knife is within 20 feet of you, he can be on you before you have drawn your weapon. So using a 44 magnum, take out the one in front and the one behind will have a bigger hole to worry about.
