Large bony things are in the way, unless you are able to pull the "look, up in the sky" routine, and when he does look, hit him. Since that is the only time you ever can get even a slight chance at the target.
    Exactly. I've fractured both hands in one of my MMA fights because I landed so many punches to the guy's forehead and cheekbones. That's WITH my hands wrapped and gloves on.. punching in the street isn't a good solution. You're better off learning how to grapple and choke. Use hard bones to strike like elbows and knees.

    But what do I know? lol

    He probably hasn't been hit by two or three hollow points to the throat though.

    Thats the point of concealed carry.
    You don't get into a fight, you don't start a fight, you active discourage a fight, you only defend yourself if attacked or reasonably in fear of being attacked. But then you stop it and call the police.

    Number one, you have completely changed the parameters of what you said earlier. Every single person who read your pithy comment in the prior post envisioned a ranged striking situation, NOT an attached entanglement. Of course in a clinch the throat can be a better target. IF the other guy is completely clueless about clinchwork. But that was not the setting for the entire gist of this thread - the ranged strike vs an entanglement.

    Secondly, your ONE SINGLE example does not counter the literally thousands of examples I mentioned. The exception DOES NOT disprove the rule. EVER. We all have heard of someone with level 4 cancer and no treatment left miraculously heal and live. But the hundreds of thousands who don't heal, and who do die, are greater arguments that miracles are not to be relied on. I have a video from eastern Europe where a BG with a knife is robbing a minimart. The clerk does a Chuck Norris spinning crescent kick and kicks the knife out of the BG's hand. Anyone want to bet their life on that as a standard knife defense move? Why not? It worked. Well, because, again, the exception does not disprove the rule.

    Dealing with the big guy.

    I would encourage everyone to read more than the thread title (in this, and every other thread) before posting a pithy one-liner throwaway response -- especially if you are a relatively new member here -- since that's not the kind of forum we strive to be. If that's what you want, literally every other gun forum and/or Facebook gun group is likely a better fit.

    If anyone thinks this request might prove too difficult for them, please let me know and I'm sure I can help.

    Dude, you realize you "said" that out loud right?
