When it comes to dealing with an attacker armed with a handgun, just how fast can your opponent draw on you? Could an armed opponent turn around and shoot you before you could react? How about one who is facing left or right?

We will use a simulation training gun to demonstrate just how much time it takes for an opponent at close distance to fire a shot on a lone defender? What factors must we take into account? How fast is a normal person’s reaction time? If you carry a handgun for self-defense, you must take a few minutes to watch this video.

TIMER: The timer in the lower-right for these is going by 1/30th's.
