    What are you IMMEDIATELY grabbing. I don't mean what you would have if the scenario dictated, but I'm talking about RIGHT now. You have seconds to react.

    What is within reach to fend off a knife wielding attacker?

    I have a S&W 642-2 loaded with Speer Gold Dot 125 +P and a speed loader of Fiocchi Xtrema, sitting right next to my keyboard on the desk, and several pistols in the safe next to it and that's about it.

    Mossberg 500 behind the door and/or G26 sitting on the coffee table. I live alone so the shotgun is safe where it is at and the G26, 19, or 30 are usually within reach. When I go out everything gets put away and the house alarm gets set.

    P238 in my pocket, but it would be faster to just grab the 92FS on the coffee table.

    If it's just a knife I'm going to bludgeon him repeatedly with a Dell XPS L501X, 15.6" screen and cooling pad.

    Only thing within my reach at the moment is a Glock knife and a Cold Steel cane sword. I don't even keep a loaded gun in the house. All in the safe. Not much crime and I live on the 3rd floor.

    I generally have my Glock 17 in my conceal holster. I keep it loaded with Hornady Critical Defense.

    Right now it would be kind of heated because Im sitting about 5 feet from my front door in this little apartment. Fortunately I could easily reach down with my right hand and grab my glock 34 from the pocket on the side of the chair were I am sitting.

    My dog would have to defend the house as I'm out! It's okay. While he's only a Jack Russell he's fiesty. :p

    I would do a strategic retreat to the garage for the Stihl with the 24" bar. I can think of no better melee weapon that I have close to hand.

    Glock G23, 14 165gr Gold Dot's. Oh, yeah, he's got to get past Obie too. 115 lbs and doesn't like strangers very much.

    And throwing it at him... I'm pretty proficient and can hit my target 9 out of 10 times....

    Well....my Beretta Tomcat is in my pocket but I think I'd grab a phone and then a camera to document the hilarity and the arrest.

    The closet rifle to me is my Mosin. There is a 12 gauge 10 ft. away from that. I would grab the Mosin first, and try to work my way to the shotgun.
