Its an excellent link Mike, thanks for sharing, its one that I visit often.  Also, my condolences to the rape victim at the top of the link.  I sure wish she had a gun.  I encourage all women to participate in the -NRA REFUSE TO BE A VICTIM PROGRAM-.
  Now as far as the -ONE SHOT-ONE KILL, OR ONE SHOT MANSTOPPER- myth syndrome,  here is the way I look at it.
  With adrenaline running,  nothing is GUARANTEED to stop a perp.  ,so the only thing we can do is INCREASE THE CHANCES.
  How do you do that.  Its simple.

1.  Use a .22LR or airsoft to practice trigger control and reduce flinching.  Use those tools to become a better shooter and transition during range sessions to higher caliber cartridges. IT WORKS!!!  , .22LR Conversion kits are a phenomenal resource and will help you become even more familiar with your weapon, be it a Kadet for a CZ or a Kimber, or a Glock.

2. When you carry, make it a minimum 9mm JHP or .38 JHP+P.

3.  patricipate in bullseye competition.  Nothing will make you a better shooter.

4.  Participate in IDPA drills that simulate real life tactical situations.   Again,  in a real life situation, the variables are tremendous, but this sure helps., even though its a very controlled environment, it still helps you prepare.  

MY POINT IS THAT IF YOU FOLLOW THE ABOVE PLAN, IT WILL INCREASE YOUR CHANCES, and increasing your chances is what its all about.   Every tactical expert agrees on that.
Nothing in life is guaranteed in these types of situations when you are attacked, but having the mental and tactical resources is what its all about.

Very interesting and thought provoking. It is amazing how many policemen (unfortunatly) were killed with a .22lr.

We train shoot until the threat is over. If mutliple threats, spread the wealth. Standard cap mags are a must with this thinking....8)
