Believe me- if you get shot at the SOLE thing you're looking at is whoever is doing the shooting. BTDT quite a few times and unless you're some super
secret squirrel CAG or SEAL shooter you're gonna miss the small things your first few times.
All kinds of training go out the window once you start playing on two way ranges- there is simply no way to simulate the stress so anything taught
tends to be forgotten rather quickly. Took me a buttload of times before I got to the point where I wasn't having tunnel vision.
When you tunnel you literally do not see anything but the focus of your attention. Hunters call it "buck fever" and is the exact same physiological
response to massively increased stress- part of the fight or flight response wired into our ancestor's monkey brains.

Some of the mental midgets posting in the previous pages have said quite a bit worse.
I'm just intensely curious as to what their reaction would be if the police told them they weren't gonna do a damned thing about their dead woman and
child or if they'd be railing against the cops if they found the guy and he got shot after popping off a few rounds at the cops.
I too am a believer in karma- I am simply hoping some posters on this thread get to experience it
