>>33372004>If a mugger pulls a gun (or even a knife) on you, it's unlikely that you'll be able draw fast enough to kill him before he kills or at least severely injures you.
Ya know I once thought like this too, until this video first hit /k/, and another helpful anon went over the situation.
Basically it comes down to reflexes. While the robber had a gun pointed at his victim and 'only' needed to pull the trigger while the pawn shop owner had to draw his weapon and aim as well, the robber's reaction time is the key to who gets off their shot first, and as most people will not react quickly in such a situation as they do not have experience or training to deal with someone drawing a fun on them suddenly.
Combined with a split second's distraction and that fact would definitely be enough for me to draw and fire.
