The True Distance of a Typical Gunfight


When we rely on statistics to help make important decisions, it’s helpful to know if those stats are actually true. We’ve all heard that most gunfights take place at three yards. It’s part of the old “three shots, three yards, three seconds” standard. But where does that come from? Is it reliable? Do we have any other sources that are more reliable or more specific? Today, we’re taking a critical look at the available data to find out what’s myth and what’s relevant for the average armed citizen for concealed carry.
