I have a theory. Redundancy..! After the FBI MIAMI incident , I did a lot of research on why such a major fail by so called "HIGHLY SKILLED" agents ?.
In all my research , two things stood out , (RED FLAGS).!
The 9mm. just wasn't effective enough.! That was the re-birth of the "Bren-10mm" slightly scaled down from the "Bren" , but highly effective!
First problems with the new 10mm. rounds ? A bit much for the less than highly skilled shooters.! THUS The birth of the .40.! Plenty of downing punch and easier to handle than the 10mm. !
TWO-and very important.!(MIND-SET) of the criminal minds ! Through psychological "Profiling" the criminals hand the edge every time ! Even more important than choice of caliber.
This profile showed the difference in "mind-set" between the average agent and the average life time criminal.
The agents , no-matter how skilled and experience , he had a 3 times longer reaction time than the criminal. WHY..?
NO thought just kill , (NO-THOUGHT) machine like! What they changed in there training methods was that redundancy of doing the same over and over and over,etc. (MUSCLE-MEMORY) , No thought , just shoot. No matter
how hard they trained , the many could not (DETACH) or UN-plug to machine like action. They were just simply too human , too thinking.!
Knowing this , I try to disconnect all the time and just let the "Machine" take over.! To act , no thought , just to act.! It's why and how I target shoot all the time. See it and shoot it. No stance one way anything. Random action from any distance or position very aware of all that is around me , cover , etc..! Just let it flow , like Martial Arts sparing..!
Have I succeeded much ? I'm gonna "PUNK-OUT" here and plea the 5th..!
I truly hope I never have to find out..?
