  •  Reaction Speed Is Mostly In Your Genes. (7+ / 0-)

    Mine is woefully slow; though as an instigator I can move at lightning speed, I've beaten international talent when all I had to do was act without needing to respond. If I have to respond, I couldn't win my own city block. For the record I'm talking activities other than gun play.

    So that's the thing. If I attack you, you're in deep shit because of how fast I can act when you aren't expecting me, but I've preplanned facing you and odds are you are somewhere near normal reaction time.

    A recent diary pointed out that law enforcement misses their target 83% of the time in real life shooting at perps.

    And they train for this constantly.
