A Friend that I train with had a student question him on this very thing the student always said durring lessons ya but if i had my gun this wouldn't work. One day My friend we'll call him pirate told the student to bring his gun into class (unloaded) Pirate brought his 8" folder that he always carries and told his student to holster his wepon any way he saw fit for a fight. Pirate told the student to draw three times. at any speed the faster the better. Now they we're not ten feet away more like five but you will see what I;m trying to say. the first draw pirate had the knife out and up against the students neck. the gun was still holsterd at the tip of the barrle the second try Pirate had the knife to the students eye resting the blade on his cheak and he also had the students had locked so he could not draw his gun. the student did not continue with the demo he stated that he got the point.. no pun intended..So I say the Knife has it till someone shows me differnt..
