    Love the show, the thing I wish you would talk about and show would be defense of the family. The Tueller Drill when he ran around the car to get away from the attacker was great. But if you have kids you can’t just run and get into a good position, you have to protect them. How would you still keep them safe and get yourself into a good position to defend everyone? Thanks.

    The big problem (with the 21 ft rule) that nobody really mentions is: We all pass by others at way less than that distance everyday. And really, even in the video, I would bet that most people aren’t going to make a scene and not let another person come within 21 ft of you. Maybe if the person looks aggressive and clearly has a knife, but in most cases, you probably won’t see either. Its fine to be prepared for those cases in which there is a real threat, but 99% of the time we aren’t going to see it coming.
