FWIW, I would say that there is some significant information missing from that statement....
If the 10 really fast shots are placed "well enough" and fired more quickly than the 1 well placed shot, then they are, objectively, better.
This is one of the problems with these types of discussions. If the assumption is that "fast" shots miss, then they ARE worthless... but we could also make the assumption that a "well placed" shot could take too long in a realistic setting and therefore it is also useless if you're already fatally wounded (or the person you are trying to protect is).
There needs to be a Balance Between Speed & Precision and statements made in regard to speed and accuracy should be qualified and complete to really mean anything. It is not something that should be over-simplified.
