so "rarely fired" means NEVER fired, to some nitwits, right?
I suppose you "think' that if you don't practice with THAT glock, you can't POSSIBLY be any good with it, right? My two keltecs are SO different, that makes a lot of sense.
I've seen your "professional" cops and troops at IPSC matches and nearly all of them post right at the bottom of the rankings, and NEVER come back, cause they aint gonna work at it hard enough to get any better and they can't stand seeing the women outshoot them.
I bet 90% of the posters here, and all of the readers, can't post scores in the top half of any realistic match, much less handle real combat stress.
I got a .22 Rohm stuck in my face once, and as I searched in my car (it was night and I was camped out) for my wallet, he fired a shot up over my head. . I didn't even twitch. I almost jumped him, cause I was pretty sure it was a blank gun. the next day, tho, I found a bullet hole in the hatchback cover of my mini-van. I was out of state, and my .45 was hidden in the car, , or him and his getaway driver would be dead men.
Ever worn the attack suit and had 2 attack dogs sicced on you? As a kid, I shot 2 dogs in the head, one shot each, with .22's at they tried to kill me. I had shot them, (different times, 1 dog each) because they had killed one of my bosse's high dollar purebred breeding gilts, and he told me to get rid of them. I've felt much more stress at the matches than I did in those encounters. I've pointed a gun at men 5x in my life. They froze in their tracks and I remember thinking that the jitters that I got later were a lot more about the legal ramifications than the fact that I had been attacked and almost killed men.
Jim Cirillo and many others are on record as saying that matches stressed them more than shootouts. If you haven't done well at some high level IDPA or IPSC, I invite you to TRY it and find out for yourself.
