Bottom line, best gunfight is the one you don't have.

I teach that too.

The next factor is how much fight is in a threat. If a threat has the fight in them, then even shredding the heart with a .357 magnum will leave you fighting for your life for another 23 seconds until the brain runs out of oxygen; conversely, someone who does not have the fight in them will go down if even barely winged with a .22lr.

 

Mas Ayoob once told the story of an LEO who was ambushed just outside his house by a perp who'd just gotten out of prison and had sworn revenge on him. He shot the officer right in the chest, and the bullet went through his heart. Despite that he managed to run from the perp to his patrol car in the driveway, and was frantically trying to open the trunk to get to a shotgun inside when he collapsed and died. That incident is often used to demonstrate that nothing short of liquefying the brain is guaranteed to drop someone instantly. And yes we all wish it had been the perp shot and not the LEO.
