Now i cant find the article (was in a recent gun magazine,could be Tactical Weapons),but i will try to paraphrase it.
It is a list of interviews conducted with convicted criminals,specifically those who exchanged gunfire with an officer.
"I knew what i was going to do,so i practiced with my gun.I got very good with it,and had to mentally harden myself so i would avoid being caught."
The article was about how more and more criminals are becoming disturbingly proficient at what they do.Even the most typical position for a criminal to carry a weapon:Stuffed crossdraw in their pants.
Then people may argue that these statistics are not bad,but they are.The same article stated that way too many police officers simply dont train more than once a month,which is unacceptable.Especially when the people they are supposed to stop are training every day.
