(OK, that last one was just to poke a little fun.) But if we're MMQB'ing, those are some of the questions a good MMQB'er would come up with. Ace2
    Lol, I don't think you watched the video.

    The GG made repeated attempts to push the BG away and/or hold him at one arms reach but unlike the rangisms youre familiar with it's a little more difficult when dealing with someone whos actually resisting. You are a prime example of why FoF evaluation is important/valuable.

    He did eventually drawn his pistol from centerline once he had the opportunity to. The BG retreating afforded him this opportunity.

    Could GG have drawn during tue struggle. I believe so but his instinct to defend against the strikes from the pistol was his focus. We have seen this in various other videos.

    I belief the OPs purpose for the post was to give an example of the realities of personal defense for the #pewpew just shoot'em crowd who thinks theyre just going to draw their handgun and start shooting. Hoodie guy took a beating most couldn't and BG wasn't really even trying.
    Failure is an opportunity to learn.
