UF Pro Presents – Knife vs Handgun: Reality Check

Tuesday, July 31st, 2018

Our friends at UF Pro produced another video in their Knife vs Handgun series. For ‘Reality Check’, they’re looking at the necessary distance one needs to draw his handgun in case of a knife attack.

They took two spec-ops veterans, a dummy knife and an FX handgun. They related that making this video resulted in a lot of bruises, especially for the knife attacker.
