I'll take it - how about you?

1% can be a lot …

Any edge you can get in a life-threatening situation is very welcome - even a 1% chance.

What if each choice or skill below gave you only an extra 1% chance of survival?

What if the model gun you pick gives you a 1% better chance?

The sighting system is 1% better.

The trigger is 1% better

The caliber is 1% larger.

The round’s penetration potential gives another 1%.

The round’s expansion potential +1%

The number of rounds available +1%

The way you carry gives you another 1%.

Your situational awareness +1%.

Your clarity of thinking +1%

Your thinking speed +1%

Your draw speed +1%.

Your shooting speed +1%

Your shooting accuracy +1%

Sure each item alone is not a big deal in and of itself (only 1%) but combined they make a significant difference. This short list alone gives you a total of 14% greater chance of surviving - and it's no where near a complete list.

Bottom line ...

Taken together, both slightly better equipment choices and minor skill improvements can increase the odds of survival significantly.
