How many times have you heard somebody tell you that USPSA will get you killed, IDPA will get you killed!, or some firearm instructor’s training will get you killed?
I don’t think any of those things will actually get you killed. You know what will get you killed? Living.
I think the shooting community needs to take the game of life less seriously. In the end, no matter what gun you carry or what kind of training you have, you’re not going to survive the game. Carry what you want, compete in whatever shooting sport(s) you want, seek out whatever training you want, and let everybody else enjoy themselves. We’re all dying so let’s not make life miserable for our fellow corpses in the making.
