Every human on this earth would like to think they can take down an armed gunman with their bare hands. It’s the epitome of badassery, with the possible exception of everything Sam Elliott’s character does in “We Were Soldiers.”

But can people take down armed thugs if they’re close enough without the use of defensive tools? Even with training, the answer is decidedly uncertain.

Now, if we haven’t seen someone on YouTube or even in person execute some awesome disarms to the astonishment to whoever’s holding a gun on them, we’ve at least seen it on movies.

UF Pro created a video to see if handgun disarms were something that could really be performed without catastrophic failure to the defender, and it was extremely disturbing:
