The two factors would be Practice and how smooth functioning is your weapon and the most importantly factor would be the mental aspect, at that moment of panic are you able to remain calm and draw your weapon quickly enough and use it.

ASP channel is excellent. Known for his forensic analysis of self-defence situations. Situational awareness, presence of mind, training, appropriate tools- mechanical and unarmed combat skills and running the hell out of the place if one can.

In the situation you described, do not get out of the car as it offers the best protection. You cannot chase after them as you are outnumbered and chasing does not count for self-defence. Use your car as a weapon. If you have a handgun, be quick to bring it to use the moment you establish credible threat. Do not stop until the threat is eliminated. Think clearly and act decisively. Just a few thoughts that come to mind when one is typing calmly from the secured space of one's living room. :wink:

I don't know about the legal niceties involved in establishing a credible threat to one's life. Surely, if they are just beating on your vehicle while you're locked inside, it isn't a credible threat, as it would be if they broke out the windows and tried getting inside with you. As Vikram says, if you leave the vehicle to chase them, how can you claim your life is in danger? Your questions seem to be the sort that should be answered by a lawyer.

Use your car as a weapon.
When I was young, I lived near a very nasty city, crime-wise. For sure, in this city, you would NOT get out of your car for ANY reason! Once, during the evening shift at work, three guys were cleaning their firearms at the table in the break room. The boss stopped by and came through, but no word was said about the guns! It was a nasty city, as I said.

My Dad told me, always drive in the inner lanes of the street, never the outer ones, where cars could block you in and stop you. Then, he said, if you are stopped at the traffic light and someone reaches to open the vehicle's hood, step on the gas! Those were the days when car hoods (bonnets) could be opened from the outside. Goons would open the hood and pull the spark plug wires, and there you were -- immobile. Better to step on the gas and run them over, or smash them against the car in front. But don't get out of the vehicle.

Here's a video where a person checks cars for penetration. You can see that, for someone with, say, a Tokarev, the only place safe is behind the engine. for a 32 Auto, it may go through the door or may not, depending on what it hits inside the door.

I did this same test years ago, at the dump. The cars were 50s vintage and were much tougher, due to thicker sheet metal.

Also look for this same person's video on bullet penetration of the windshield.

You didn't say how people where attacking in your scenario -- were they armed, and with what? More detail would help.

Should be good for at least 5 pages...
1.in India you are guilty until proven innocent
2.use a gun - guiltier- go straight to jail until cops can be bribed to READ the law etc
3. YouTube and and other net sources - caveat emptor!
If you can , get the hell out of there ASAP. Guns sticks and pepper spray be damned.

In our country the attacker is not questioned but the person defending himself has to prove that he was defending himself.....what the hell🤩
