Being familiar with a given platform is critical, when the defecation hits the rotary oscillator.

You (meaning anyone) react to how you were trained. Good or bad.

I know of one officer that was killed in the line of duty.
When he was found, his revolver was in his left hand, cupping the open cylinder, and his right hand was in his left shirt pocket.

Why?????

When the investigation was over, it was explained that when on the range, he'd drop his empties into his shirt pocket.

When he died, he was apparently dropping his spent cartridge cases into his pocket. (There were 5 empties in his pocket, and one on the ground.)


The ultimate bottom line. . . . you will react in the way you were trained. Good. Bad. However.
