Due to the number of variables involved, I would put no more stock in the opinion of someone who had been fired at, or who had shot at someone, than I would in anyone else. FoF training is much more telling.
I think many people do not realize how unreliable first-person testimony is. Further, the testimony of people who have been involved in violent incidents often contradicts physical and video evidence.

It's also the case that the opinions of "the experienced" contradict each other. You end up with "dueling opinions".

This forces a thinking person to conclude that - unless we pick a "hero" to follow blindly - there are better ways to find out what works and what doesn't.
