    Talent is Overrated, deliberate practice is needed.

    Interesting article I read regarding talent... could easily apply to firearms training.
    This was in an article in a waiting room at the phys. therapist.

    linky

    and there's a sidebar of interest as well.

    linky

    There's a bit of religious content... which you can ignore or not...

    In a way it remided me of the FBI agent pistol marksman that was raised "teething on a .45"... Guantes provided that link.

    I don't know how many of us have 10,000 hours to devote to being "all that" with a hand gun or other self defense methods... or how many times we pick apart EVERY motion we make in drawing and firing...

    But it sure wouldn't hurt to do more, I guess

    Your job is to "serve us" not to lord power over us."

    I read that book, worth reading but a tad dry,

    If you find that article interesting, read Outliers: The Story of Success by Malcolm Gladwell. Specifically, the chapter on the 10,000 hour rule.
    Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.
