Yep, its not easy to stop someone shooting you. Anyone who knows what their doing, wont let you in close enough to use a tecnique. So just use ki and bend the barrel of the gun. ha ha.
I read a book when o'sensei was asked this questiopn ''So what if someone decides to shoot you from a long distance''
His answer was something on the lines of
''There is quite a long time between someone having the incentive to shoot you, and them actutally doing it''
I feel this was a good answer. He wasnt talking about the time taken to pull the triger but when someone decide to find a gun and use it. Others may read it diffrently.
When Soke Maasaki Hatsumi was asked the same question he said ''ask for a divine intervention from god'' he was being humerous as ever, but I feel this also to be a good answer. Read it how you will.
