training

All of that training.....if that floats your boat and you enjoy it (it probably is a lot of fun. Shooting generally is fun.) I gotta ask, though, what situation is going to demand all of those skills? Can someone document a situation or two wherein a "normal guy" was pressed in such way that the list of skills aforementioned were called upon?
I can think of any number of instances when being armed would have helped save a situation and lives. I cannot think of any situation which involved a running gunfight, multiple magazine changes, scooting from cover to cover, etc.....
I understand that one is perhaps better off preparing for the worst but still.....the emphasis seems a bit extreme as the scenarios outside of military combat are unlikely.
