It's sort of like the military and ORI. Practice what you are likely to be tested on or what might happen in reality to you.

Gunfight Rules

"Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading."
In a gunfight, the most important rule is ... HAVE A GUN!!!

These are shooting tips or rules from various Concealed Carry Instructors. If you own a gun, you will appreciate these rules... If not, you should get one, learn how to use it and learn the rules.
RULES
1. Guns have only two enemies: Rust and Politicians. Rust can be prevented, Politicians can not
2. It's always better to be judged by 12 than carried out by 6.
3. Cops carry guns to protect themselves, not you.
4. Never let someone or something that threatens you get inside arm's length.
5. Never say "I've got a gun." If you need to use deadly force, the first sound they should hear
is the safety clicking off, or the hammer cocking.
6. The average response time of a 911 call is 23 minutes; the response time of a 9mm is 1,400
feet per second.
7. The most important rule in a gunfight is: Always Win - there is no such thing as a fair fight.
Always Win - cheat if necessary. Always Win - 2nd place doesn't count.
8. Make your attacker advance through a wall of bullets ... you may get killed with your own
gun, but they'll have to beat you to death with it because it will be empty.
9. If you're in a gun fight:
(a) If you're not shooting, you should be loading.
(b) If you're not loading, you should be moving.
(c) If you're not moving, you're dead.
10. In a life and death situation, do something ... it may be wrong, but do something!
11. If you carry a gun, people will call you paranoid. Nonsense! If you have a gun, what do
you have to be paranoid about?
12. Never fire a "warning shot", that is just one wasted bullet, which could be needed within
moments.
13. You can say "stop" or any other word, but a large bore muzzle pointed at someone's head is
pretty much a universal language; and, you won't have to press (1) for Spanish/Mexican,
or (2) for Chinese, or (3) for Arabic.
14. Never leave a wounded enemy behind. If you have to shoot, shoot to kill. In court, yours
will be the only testimony.
15. You maybe cannot save the planet, but you can save yourself and your family.

If you believe in the 2nd Amendment, forward to others you know who also believe.

Solid gold. Personally, I think there's a balance that has to be achieved once you figure out if your primary goal is self-defense, or being a "professional at arms" (something I don't think always requires either a uniform or badge). The former is about realistic assessments of what the threats are, and what the most efficient, reliable means of countering them are. Full kit is probably a bad idea for someone who has a had a triple by-pass. I've met far too many folks who select their "tools" based on what someone half their age, with three times their relative "combat" training would choose. I've also heard many myths coming from folks who forget that what they learned in a prior life largely centers on small unit tactics... when they will ultimately be alone when things go pear shaped. Finally, almost no one seems to be thinking about the combined effects of psychology and physiology on their defensive training. Those neat little paper boxes don't intimidate very well.
