My buddy runs a great live fire drill to demonstrate this concept. He sets the target (silhouette) at tactical distance and marks off the same distance behind the shooter. The shooter stands at the ready (gun holstered) with the instructor behind him. The instructor taps the shooter and runs. The shooter draws and fires 3 shots and the instructor stops on the third report. If the instructor makes it to the line the shooter is dead. If all three shots aren't in the kill zone, the shooter is dead. If the gun misfires, the shooter is dead.
At 21' you had best shoot an armed attacker in the engine or computer or they are going to close the gap.
On a related side note I have talked to a cop who put 3 shots in a junkies chest and he kept coming. The guy was so gone on pcp his body didn't even know it was dead. He literally had no heart left when they did the autopsy.
I don't need No stinking signature.
