You are probably not moving fast enough or using cover correctly.
Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend. Every step you take back increases your chances of survival.
So what I’m telling you is, when you draw your pistol, if you step one step, you go from a non-survivable wound to a survivable wound. But if you draw your pistol while you’re backing up – it doesn’t have to be backwards, but from the side or whatever just as long as you’re moving and shooting – that is a lethal combination. It’s just a few steps. It doesn’t have to be very far at all.
