One of your goals in training and practice should be to determine your capabilities with whatever weapon you're carrying; I know I can't make a head shot at 100 yards with my carry gun, but know that (in practice, at a range and not getting shot at...) I can at 25 yards.

I don't know when, or if, I'll have to defend myself. I also don't know what my attacker will be armed with, or what distance the attack with commence at. That's why I know if I can make a shot at 6" (harder than it seems it would be) and how far I can stretch before my chances of making a productive shot approach zero.

If you don't know what you can hit, you're missing vital data about the tactics you should employ in the particular situation you find yourself in.

He who fights and runs away had better run pretty damn fast.
