Predators often operate in packs, as greater numbers means greater strength. Therefore, it’s important to learn a few tactics to help fend off an attack from more than one opponent. In the upcoming March 2014 issue of Combat Handguns, author Michael Janich offers some extremely helpful tips and practice drills to master to keep you safe.

Janich writes, “In my opinion, there is no one-size-fits-all strategy for dealing with multiple attackers because the variables involved are simply too numerous. However, there are a few key principles that you can employ that can improve your survivability in most situations—specifically, movement and “stacking” your attackers.

“Movement offers several advantages against multiple attackers. First, a moving target is more difficult to hit than a stationary one. Regardless of whether your attackers are armed with firearms or contact weapons, you’re going to be more difficult to hit if you are moving than if you try to stand tall and sling lead.”
