"You won't rise to the occasion--you'll default to your level of training."
- Barrett Tillman
Quoted by Randy Cain at http://www.guntactics.com/
Performance under stress is where training tells...
Mindset - Skillset - Toolset. In that order!
Attitude and skill will get you through times of no gear, better than gear will get you through times of no attitude and no skill.
