I've seen at least my fair share of folks using hi-cap pistols fire faster than they could either properly index or align their pistols for accurate sighted fire.
That has everything to do with the training (or lack thereof) and absolutely nothing to do with whether the gun is a hi-cap pistol or a five-shot snub-nose.

Nowadays you can ask some folks who have only shot hi-cap pistols to shoot for accuracy at 50 yards, and more often than not they look at you like you're asking the impossible, or speaking gibberish.
The same can be said for people shooting revolvers who haven't been made to practice at longer ranges with them. After our department (a rather large one) transitioned from revolvers to semi-autos (Smith third generation variants), our training retained the same regimen in terms of distances. Officers who were required to shoot at the fifty yard range with their "obsolete" revolvers had to qualify at the same distance with their "new" hi-cap pistols. Nothing of significance changed between the revolver and the semi-auto performances in terms of scores at the fifty yard targets.
