Eliminating wishful thinking is the point.

When I train with my gun I do so on an outdoor range with targets and objects that resemble urban situations. Our motto is train how your fight, fight how you train. The Gunfighter - Cobb

Your Say

God, please don't make me fast, strong, brave, or rich.

Just let me be aware of my surroundings...

Most gunfights happen within 20'.

My office is 24' long x 12' wide.

There are manila folders (head size)at various distances away from me and at various heights. There is an empty Beretta laying right here on my desk at all times and another non-empty in the top desk drawer.

Throughout the day I quickly dry fire at those targets unexpectedly. At the neighbors outdoor range we do the same thing with live ammo - 9mm and 12ga. It has to become a reflex, not a reaction. With the former you may live, with the latter you may die.

In your lifetime.

But that doesn't mean for ONE SECOND that I don't believe how vital it
is for every horse owner to develop skills in training a horse on some level.
At least one additional horse has been reportedly euthanized in the region, with veterinarians pointing to EHV-1.
Horses are sensitive creatures and building a close bond between the horse and rider is an important
aspect of riding.
