    That being said (and I agree with his article) Dave even at his age is still a very good shooter, uses a timer in his classes, and expects his students to shoot well.

    Is shooting well necessary in a gunfight?
    No one is stronger or more dangerous than the man who can harness his emotions.

    Seems to be pointing out a difference between combat effective and being a marksman.

    The gangster in his example may look ridiculous while killing you, but you are just as dead. Your 3 Gun scores may be top 10%, but if you aren't willing to engage, that's the end.

    Only of you are interested in ending the fight quickly without unintended consequences, otherwise it is a crap shoot.

    See where I have a problem with this is not what Dave intended but what people read into it. The whole "combat accuracy" bull****. I have seen this so many times in training. And we have seen the results of it in videos and police shootouts many times. Shooting vs. fighting doesn't have to be a thing. You can be a great shooter with a piss poor fighting mindset or you can be a mediocre shooter with a good fighting mindset. Better yet, you can be a great shooter with a good combative mindset and tactical skills. Which do you want to be?

    I just took it as shooting well is not enough. Cooper also said gunhandling and marksmanship are not enough. Mindset is important.

    Alive at the end by any means necessary.
