Remember, Active Killer confrontations are a "come as you are" event. What do you carry? You're not going to run to your car to get a long gun. What is your level of accuracy at distance with a handgun? Don't for a moment think that since you can hit a man size target at 7 yards with no time constraints that you can make the head shot at 25 yards on a moving target when your adrenaline is running on high.
Incorporate some distance shooting into your practice. If you can practice on an open range run or do fast exercises in place to get your heart rate racing and then draw your gun for a precision shot. In a robbery or assault you're at bad breath distance. It's a totally different with a terrorist or other active killer.
