Not every shoot you take will hit the target. Even for police that are more trained that alot of us. All the people saying that you will hit the person with every shot you take, is a myth in a real life situation.
Right you are but some of us here have had extensive training and some of us have been trainers for military and police officers. Mostly its about the attitude you can show when the adrenaline rush hits. There are those who stand firm under pressure and some who get all excited and need a few seconds under fire before they gather their wits and use their training and some who will never be good under pressure. That quirk in their physical reaction and personality counts for as much or more then skills on the range.
