..... in a real fight, you are going to miss way more than you hit. Regardless of what you think. The 2-way range is a whole different place...
A youtube page I basically watch daily is Active Self Protection. It, and One Bite Pizza reviews, are kind of a nightly ritual. I will say that you shouldn't watch these if you don't want to see the death of someone on video. I'd say that's how 75% of these end.
Watching a few hundred of these now has made short work of some of my preconceived notions of what "typical" shootings look like, and the speed with which most gunfights develop is eye opening.I don't know what I think of the host, but like jujitsu did to kung fu, it puts to rest a lot of BS claims about self defense and the use of firearms in those situations. There are many videos on that channel of folks using conceal carry to save their or other's lives, as well as [email protected]#ing up royally and harming themselves or others or breaking the law.
I don't conceal carry myself but I have nothing against it, and the bet I am making is that the responsibility of carrying a firearm is, for me, a burden greater than the concern I have over needing one. Maybe I won't always feel that way.
