I knew you understood the game. I just didn't want others to think, if they were fast enough on the draw that they could stop an attacker wielding a knife by simply getting a shot off before contact.
Not correcting you. Just adding to.........for others benefit.
My beautiful French Model, you.

So, one has to ask; Would John Q. be facing legal issues if the person who stopped the attack wasn't a LEO?
The cynic in me thinks it's a possibility.

The lawmen should have more training, But I've had no training and the attacker would be down when he makes the first step towards me.I'd try for a leg first if I miss and he keeps advancing I'd empty my gun on the upper body; I don't think he would keep advancing with 5 to 6 rounds in him, but I'd try and never run. All of this is easy to say but you never know how you would react when it is actually happening.

Shooting at/for a leg is the dumbest thing you could ever do.
A. Small target. Good luck hitting a moving leg under stress. Hint:it ain't happening.
B. You hit a leg, and don't hit it good, Mr Scumbag is still coming for you. Does a center mass shot ensure he will stop? No, but, it's a MUCH larger area to hit, and while not 100% certain it will stop someone, it's a better chance than a leg.

I cant imagine anyone thats ever been attacked not taking it seriously.
Ive been assaulted at knife point twice in my life. Admittedly niether time was an all out attack although the second one degenerated to that. IMO an attack on a un uniformed citizen would likely be in the form of a hands on scuffle and one would have to deploy their handgun during the scuffle while receiving knife wounds.

Shoot someone, whether LEO or civilian, you're going to get sued. Especially if it's not in personal threat. Maybe or almost certainly not criminal issues, but possibly civil.
It costs $40 to submit a lawsuit with a helluva return if the plaintiff wins with no cost for loss. And many lawyers start off making $13K a year which makes hungry lawyers so you see why you'll get sued. Been there, done that.
It goes with the territory.

This used to be the case, but now not so much...there are several states that have clauses in their Self Defense Acts (or whatever they are called in those particular states)that provide immunity from civil suits should the shooting be determined to be within the law....

Forget the leg! Forget the head.
Center mass, start the clock and keep hitting center mass until the clock stops ticking. It's the biggest target ya got!

If three is good, four is better and five....hooahh!
I'm mostly joking, of course. For folks who live-as I do-in a less than rural area...training for reality is not encouraged.
