  1. Your personal decision is still your personal decision. There are many ways to learn. You decide how and what you want to learn and how to use your resources. What you choose not to learn, you won't learn; and what you choose not to know, you won't know. And, as with anything else, there may be consequences to those choices.

  2. That's all no reason to be critical of, or denigrate, those who have more resources or choose to use their resources differently from you -- such as to acquire certain knowledge or skills.

  3. In any case, this thread isn't really about levels or quantity of training. It's about clearing up a lack of familiarity with currently taught defensive pistolcraft doctrine.
"It is long been a principle of ours that one is no more armed because he has possession of a firearm than he is a musician because he owns a piano. There is no point in having a gun if you are not capable of using it skillfully." -- Jeff Cooper
