I don't remember who said that, but I know from long experience that it's the absolute truth!...'beware the man that owns only one gun,,,,,,,he knows how to use it!!!!!"
Remember that when you really do have to use your pistol for self protection, it will be in an adrenaline-fuelled panic....I do believe that an experienced hand-gunner can feel confident switching, with good practice frequency and habits...
I mostly agree, Steve, but I also believe that if you panic, you are screwed, regardless. I mostly think of self defense scenarios in terms of those that do not require a 'quick-draw.' If it happens so suddenly that reacting correctly in a couple of seconds is required for survival, I won't make it. Still, you do have a valid point - it's just a point that I have decided to concede, and prepare myself for scenarios that I believe I might have a chance to survive.Remember that when you really do have to use your pistol for self protection, it will be in an adrenaline-fuelled panic.
Whatever you do at that moment had better be on "automatic pilot." There will be no chance to think things through, or to remember which gun you're carrying.
Attack?I...believe that if you panic, you are screwed, regardless...
Yup....A law-abiding person has to let the situation develop to the point where he is sure that the confrontation is going to be violent, before reacting violently, himself...
Yup....What I have never opposed is the practice of being initimately familiar with several firearms showing a strong degree functional identity. For instance, there is nothing wrong with having several versions of the same handgun, differing only in barrel and grip length, to accommodate limitations in concealment due to seasonal dress...[emphasis added]
