Practice makes perfect, is neurosience!
Practice raising your sights on your various weapons. Look and focus on various things on the other isde of the room and raise up to see how long it takes you to target.

Well I listened to all the old timers and military folks and I have to tell you, even though I have a permit to carry and can afford the best guns and gear.... I don't have the experience.. and that enough is to get me dead in a hurry.. I am in no hurry to get into a gun fight. If I do it is because there was no where to run or turn to. I don't look forward to an escalation because the odds are not in my favor, but when it comes.. I'll crap my pants, shake like hell and hope it works out.. if not I will be a statistic.. Hope that day never, ever comes.. if ya win, ya still lose.

Why would I want to shoot myself to save myself? That doesn't make much sense.
I will tell you what happens in a gunfight. We hold true to our delusions that we are separate from one another and thus our immaturity kills someone or even multiple people, sometimes unintended, we play god and think we have the right to kill and we justify it with all these reasons, some are very convincing...

A vicious circle is ignited, pain and suffering grows from the incident like a seed, leading invariably somewhere down the line to more death pain and suffering
Instead of preparing for scenarios to use a gun, which should be trying to prevent such scenarios from occurring in the first place. Imo, the best way is to let the world mature, change your way of life to drastically minimize such a scenario from occurring.
