But actually the focus of this sub-forum is not recreational shooting. It's self defense and violent encounters.

And if one practices properly, one can manage that sort of thing safely, although diagnosing and clearing a double feed will require looking at the gun. But a "tap-rack" or a speed reload can be safely executed without looking at the gun.
