I'm thinking a perp would be better off if I were to only shoot them and leave the knife in the pocket...hypothetically of course.

In the US handgun wounds are about 40% lethal last I remember. Knife wounds are about 60% lethal.

I believe that there is a primal fear of being sliced and diced, bloodied and cleaved, that lies deep within us.

I was stabbed once, years (decades) ago on the streets of Birmingham Alabama.
Thought I was going to bleed to death before I could get to the hospital!  Not fun!
