How do we know we won't freeze up?
I was wondering this same thing about those of us including myself,how do we know if lord forbid the time ever comes that we need our side arm we won't become frozen? Do any of you guys here feel as I do that while training is obviously important,mind set and will are also as important elements of not freezing in those desperate moments?
I've been shooting guns since I was 12 and I'm 31 now I know this isn't that the same thing as training like at front sight or the like,but I have good shooting skills and I believe the proper mind set to win and survive period. All of this being said I do plan to attend a self defense course as soon as my finances allow.
I also practice drawing constantly with my carry gun and rig to keep my muscle memory up,and I've gone over countless scenarios in my head on self defense. So at the end of the day for those of use who defensive carry everyday how far does ones mind set go in determining if we'll freeze in that desperate moment?
Do you guys feel like people freeze at the worst moment due to lack of training,or poor mind set? As is in they don't practice enough with their side arm and they don't have the proper mind set going into it? So I guess I'm saying that given I've never been to a school like gunsite yet given what I've stated here am I prepared for a confrontation?
