    I don't think anyone can be sure if it is true. We are dealing in hypotheticals. I don't think one can possibly imagine all the "likely scenarios." Some CCWs really scare me when they try. I think one should train such that the gun becomes a natural extension. Without that, scenarios are not very improtant.

I think folks should train in the context of criminal assaults.
    I practice shooting pretty much the same way I did in the military. That is, I shoot a lot, from vaious distances and body positions, and under time constraints. I don't worry too much about whether this training will prepare me for every possibility. I figure any scenario that this won't prepare me for and that my weapon won't handle, is most likely one in which I was not meant to survive.
    Whatever doesn't kill you postpones the inevitable.

    I hope you are just trying to make a point with that statement, and that's not your idea of "practical" defensive shooting ???


    In most shooting situations proper shot placement can be summed up in 6 words ...............

    Center Mass , Center Mass & Center Mass !!

    As far as caliber wars : Nah I shoot the largest caliber than I can shoot accurately and quickly. For me it's the .45 acp . For others it might be a 9mm , 40 cal ,or .357


    A LTTLE TRAINING IS A DANGEROUS THING ....
