Do we really know what happened in the gunfight that just happened
These words from Grossman make me wonder, "DO WE REALLY KNOW what happened in our own gunfight after it happened"? Or anything that happens in front of us. Do we remember what happened or what we see in our minds eye?
My only experience I can remember is while driving and losing control on curve and doing a full 360. I remember driving through the slide, the whole time of the happening. It seemed to take a very long time to happen, but from the distance traveled in the skid and circle it could not have. So did my driving skills kick in and I controlled the jeep as I remember or did it just happen?
Sheepdog tip of the day
Two police officers are in a gunfight, blazing away at the suspect. One said later that he saw his partner get shot. “I see the bullets rip through my partner’s body,” he said. “I see the blood gush out. I drop [kill] the suspect, holster my weapon, and turn to my partner. But he’s fine; he’s not hit.” The officer clearly saw his partner shot. He saw the bullet holes and he saw the blood. When the battle is over, he goes to his partner’s aid, but discovers he is not hurt at all. The officer believes what he saw with such intensity that he begins pulling at his partner’s clothes... which understandably distresses the unharmed man. When under great stress you may envision your worst fear—“My God, my partner is hit!”—and you see it so clearly in your mind that you are absolutely convinced it really happened. Lt. Col.
