Many advanced classes have the student put into a high stress engagement to struggle- not being mean but to show there is a bit to know, practice and commit to muscle memory.

    far more difficult to ingrain is the so-called 'killer instinct' as it really is neither in a well trained person. Funny the times a highly trained shootist is a miserable failure at 'sealing the deal' when in a deadly encounter. The time honored double or triple tap is quickly forgotten and it is back to target practice 'shoot and observe' one round at a time.

    But a citizen with no real training in the 'gun-fight' or history of mental defect will fire multiple rounds to include a coup de grace in multiple people.

    So best to in general never say in general...

    To refine the data to ensure a first round hit most professionals are not 'highly trained'. But the truly trained to a high standard are pretty damn good with their firearms....

    yes, i can read... how very thoughtful of you to inquire.

    i think it's fine that you voluntarily do these things, i have no objection to you doing what you want.
    my objections only arise when folks like you are not content in doing things for yourself, but seek to force everyone else to submit to your requirements.

    I have a CCW ( i wouldn't call that an "extensive training course" at all) .. I have zero ( out if 55) registered firearms( i am not required to register, nor will i if i was required).... most of my purchase are from private sellers, so no backgrounds checks either.( I have, in the past, passed FBI checks..it's an absurdity that i would still be required to so so)

    In my opinion people like you are careless and thoughtless and a big part of the problem with gun ownership in USA. I look forward to when there are sensible gun laws nationwide.

    your opinion of me, necessarily formed without fact or knowledge, is of no concern.

    My opinion is based solely on what the carelessness you were bragging about. If you didn't want to share that information, you shouldn't have typed it. You did, you exposed yourself.

    Look dude

    most of the stuff you post on gun politics is nothing more than a passive aggressive attack on pro gun posters who tire of the Democrat Party's attacks on gun rights. I get tired of you projecting your phobias on to the rest of us or insinuating that those of us who think all free citizens of age ought to be able to own the same rifle as our tax dollars supply the military and the civilian police departments.
