    As a general guideline, when attacked with :
    - knife, create distance
    - blunt trauma weapon, close the distance
    - firearm, close the distance
    Defender 2.8i

    As the saying goes. "Everybody bleeds in a knife fight."
    Any minority that advocates for gun control is either wilfully ignorant, or has never opened a history book.

    You do realise this is actually about a surgery....

    Not a knife fight?

    Especially applicable when somebody wants to attack you with surgery

    But ja, my post was in answer to what to do in a SD situation.

    This thread is actually a beautiful illustration of how easy it is for people to see what they want to see, instead of what is actually there.

    That wasn’t the original intention, but that’s the way it turned out.

    To be fair, all the Rambos with their guns jumped to the conclusion that it was a life threatening attach and pulled their weapons.

    Not many picked up that it was a surgeon trying to save your life.

    My thread was meant to be a five post joke. It turned out to be a lesson on just how paranoid we have become.

    No hard feelings or finger pointing anywhere, just interesting to see.

    As was said earlier, this thread went in 2 directions.

    One a not so funny play on words, and the other a scenario that a lot of people are clearly concerned about.

    Interestingly in the civilized world you are far far more likely to be killed by your doctor than by crime. I wonder how South Africa compares?

    Lack of sense humor or lack of comprehension? Could be an interesting study

    The other day I was confronted by 2 masked people, one had a needle and one had a pneumatic drill, can you believe it. They took over a thousand rand, I even lost a tooth. I don't know what this country is coming to.

    I realise this thread was supposed to be humorous but I am going to have to add something less humorous.

    For all the "who brings a knife to a gun fight?" guys: If he is close enough that you can actually see the knife (unless it is a Crocodile Dundee monster - you can see that one from a mile away) you would be in trouble even if you had your hand on the gun or holster.

    not a dr story. a masked man story.

    My 70 year old neighbours yesterday morning opened their door to feed the cats and two balaclava masked men attacked his wife.

    One had a knife and the other a homemade pipe gun. They run around the corner into the husband, the husband kicked the chap with a gun, the masked man kicked him back - wife screamed, and pressed the panic button. and they ran away.

    So answer to the story pay the doctor and kick the other masked man.

    Six weeks back while after exiting a Fried Chicken Franchise I was held up by a knife wielding boyo approximately six paces away. I had a bag of fried chicken in each hand and bent down to place the bags on the ground. The boyo saw this and seemed happy about it.I had a 9m in a shoulder holster and got this out while standing up. He took off when he looked down the barrel. I think that I was extremely lucky. This Beretta is loader with Hollow point and he would have got at least 3 rounds. This happened in one of our bigger cities.
