sighti picture under stress

I am looking for an article (I did not save the one I am looking for) that went into detail about the difficulty of sighting a pistol when under stressful situation and faced with "fight or flight" emotion. It was a long article that basically said the normal gun sights had proved (discussions with police and military) ineffective when faced with an armed opponent.
Anyone familier with such an article.

I installed a Lasermax on my GLOCK 23 for that reason. It is a bright, blinking laser, and is a lot easier to see during times of stress.

I also have the LaserMax, for the same reason. Keep in mind that outside in daylight, you may not be able to see it.
