Revisiting the “Rule of three”


So you’ve probably heard about the Rule of threes. You can survive three minutes without air, three hours of exposure to extreme weather, three days without water and three weeks without food.

This does leave out something rather important: self defense. So I’d like to add that you can survive 3 seconds in a gunfight without a gun. Meaning you need to be armed as best as possible at all times.

This also relates to the FBI’s “Three, three and three Rule”, which says it will be over in 3 seconds, 3 shots will be fired (FBI stats point towards 3-4), it will happen at 3 feet (its in average 3 to 7 feet). To this particular rule I would like to add that it will be 3 of you as well (meaning theres a good chance it will be you vs at least two others, meaning multiple attackers)

Don’t underestimate the importance of self defense, being as well armed as you can and never get too complacent with your safety.

Fernando, I think it is three yards, not feet. The Tueller drill is 7 yards.

Best,

Interesting that it is usually at such a close distance of only 3 to 7 feet. This suggests that you'd have a chance with a knife - if you know how to use it. Of course, a gun is preferable, but there are many places in the world where you can't carry a gun.
