I've been toying with an airsoft pistol. The mental context is reacting to a home invasion a la Memento: multiple armed but misinformed that the flat is going to be empty assailants, very aggressive for fear of leaving alive witnesses*.
It is my observation that in close quarters (< 5m) a knife is superior to a gun because it is drawn a little quicker and is somewhat more useful halfway drawn (hammer strikes to the temples, arm hooking, jabs to the face)**.
Another observation is that a gun can be drawn from a holster or from the table in various ways. One of them is to draw it close to the body and THEN, IF some clearance is guaranteed, aim and brace for the recoil.
How does this fit into the paradigm of dynamic shooting? What are some sources to get educated on it? What is the fastest way to draw upon someone at 9 o'clock***?

*** - directly to your left
