Agreed, during my career in LE talked to many gangsters who had survived hits from everything from .22 cal to 45 acp. And I'm talking center mass in some cases. "will to survive".

very true, but also keep shooting until the target ceases to be a threat, even if that means emptying a 20-30 round rifle magazine into their center mass.

We do what we can and what we must, jiggering those odds. (Sigh) I feel old these days, regarding that. I used to be a lot more enthusiastic with training, various advancements in technology and such. 1500 round a week in practice was far from unusual. Oh, I can still hold my own. No doubt. A lots changed.

I think I've skewed the odds, for myself, as much as their going to be. I'm trying to pass as much of that on as I can. Maybe skew things for ..others. Pay it forward, some. And keep that which is more precious to me , than me, safe.
