It is gun...shoot man with knife...take knife...guard your head and stab away
You would have to hit the guy right through the brain, neck or heart with hat bullet or your plan isn't working. That's tough when everyone's scrambling in a small space. If you hit him in the gut or any non fatal place he's dropping and curling up with the weapon still in his hands. You'll get pummeled while reaching.
Even if you do manage to get him to drop the knife with a good shot, you'll have to run over to the knife and bend down to get it while the other guy with the pipe springs at you swinging at your head or knees or spine whichever is vulnerable(you'll only have one hand to cover up while you reach). I'd rather get stabbed once or twice in the back than get rendered unable to move for a second or two from the blunt force shock of a pipe. You'd get beat down without getting a single lick.
Pipe would win..
