In an office at an unknown location, a man was at his desk working when another man with a machete came in and walked up to him. The man working was carrying his firearm and while he did take it out, he didn’t put his phone or cigarette down, and the bad guy got the jump on him rather easily.
There’s a scuffle, blood, co-workers leave, and it’s him against the bad guy for what seems like an eternity.
Magazine on the ground, gun off to the right, but things end up in favor of the armed office employee.
After others come in and help with the situation, the man who was just attacked immediately gets back on the phone to resume whatever call he was already involved in before the attack started.
The armed man had a good amount of time to draw and fire at this advancing threat. Drop the phone, drop the cigarette, and get that gun out and on target to defend yourself. Things happen faster than many realize, and the bad guy isn’t waiting for you to be ready for the fight.
