Could You Make The Shot
I know we are just guessing about what we would and could do in this situation.
The raw video of the recent shotgun assault at the church in Texas got me wondering/thinking. Could I have made that head shot from that distance.
The video revealed to me the location of your holster and cover garment is critical and could be deadly. Small of back with a thick bulky sweater is not a good idea.
Could you make the head shot with your Solo, Micro 380, Micro9, 38spl revolver, Kimber Ultra in 45 or 9mm? I'm guessing most all of us could make that shot on the range, controlled environment.
However bad guy has a SHOTGUN and is about to shoot YOU. He could be wearing body armor. He has on a long black coat and a hoodie and a shotgun.
I'm usually carrying these days Super Carry Ultra+ 45acp, I'm confident it's "enough" gun but if I'm not a member of the church security team, then I may opt to carry something smaller more concealable, Charter Arms revolver .38spl or .44spl, I've done it before.
I would like to believe and think I could make that shot with any pistol I was carrying but to be honest I don't know...and it looked like a greater distance than what I normally practice head shots at.
My local indoor range is not real keen on us drawing and firing from a holster, I have done it but not trying to be super fast just a little quicker and SAFE.
Definitely adding some head shot practice at longer distance to my range time.
