If memory serves me, Our military does not give every member a full auto. They are now 3 shot burst and semi-auto select M-16 with one designated member carrying the heavy machine gun the SAW M-249!

Gunfight, 20-30 shots exchanged in restaurant, no injuries reported.
Gun Fight between robbers and cops. Two Dozen bullets exchanged, no injuries.
Shootout at bank between aggressive robbers and armored car personnel, no injuries reported.
There are lots and lots of more examples. Many of the examples involve police and/or gangs, and one can assume both have training or experience in shooting effectively.
Once the bullets start flying, it is apparently very difficult to hit anything! The world looks a lot different with bullets coming at you.

AirSoft or paintball are very effective tools to put you into the physiological and psychological conditions needed to improve accuracy under stress. I would recommend using airsoft or paintball guns that are nearly identical in their design and feel to the guns you would likely use in an actual situation. However you will build muscle memory doing so. You will not experience empty mags / slide-lock, or weapon failures in the same way. That can and will be deadly.
Regardless training in realistic situations is vital to development of these needed skills.

Unless you know that in the back of your mind you won't die when you get shot. It's different.
Paintball stress is nothing similar to bullets penetrating your intestines stress.
