First, thank you for your service to our country, Jon. Do you just do a quick, Are-all-the-stalls-empty? sort of check before gettin' down to your own business?

That's probably something I should consider.

On the main topic, I have no CQ H-to-H experience nor training. I'm not even particularly fast at drawing and engaging a target. It does seem folly, after reading this article, to assume that carrying a gun and having situational awareness is enough.

What particular training would be a good first start? One can never have too much training, but what would at least get my feet wet for CQ self-defense?

I am a somewhat paranoid person when it comes to other people. I always sit in resturaunts to where my back is to a wall and i can see the door. I don't let anyone get within arms reach of me unless i know them. If i go to a public restroom, which i avoid at all costs anyway, i will wait until it is empty and always use a stall. I carry a knife and a pistol and when i have my girlfriend with me she walks on my left side (my gun is on my right side). I carry a gun and a blade readily available. I have enough training to prevent a knife attack...in theory anyway, you can never be certain of such things. But the last thing i would go for if someone was charging me from a close distance is my gun. I do not want a firearm to come into play in a hand to hand situation. If they are stronger then me and i dont get a shot off that firearm could easily be used against me.

Stop the initional attack, Gain distance, draw firearm. The one time i had someone pull a knife on me i stepped back and pulled my knife and that effectually ended the contfrontation. Granted at the time i was carrying a knife that was largely illegal and was about 3 of the knife the other guy had...but still.

If someone pulls a gun on you and you are suprised the best course of action is to comply until you can safely draw your firearm... As JonM said, conversation is a great distraction.
