Been a while since the 21 foot rule reared it's ugly head.

The 'reactionary gap', I know it well!
That is part of an OLD training film.

Obviously not NYPD or LAPD. The "perp" actually had a weapon and had an opportunity to present it.

Knives are more dangerous than guns.

I can't say I agree. It would have to be in the right hands. But to me, they're scarier for sure. I just have this innate aversion, as most people do, to getting sliced open.

You know, bullet proof vests will not stop a knife puncture?

Well that depends on many factors... I've seen knives that wouldn't punch through denim. There have been many unsubstantiated stories of knives becoming lodged in ballistic material. And if there's a plate being used...obviously it'll stop a blade.

They're not rated at all for knives though. Makes sense to me that they wouldn't be, as that's not what they're deigned for. That's why I wear chain mail over my vest when I go grocery shopping.
