Second, train as much as possible. And no paper target at 7yds one hand in pocket cigarette in mouth doesn't count. IDPA, USPSA etc. Etc. Train/compete under a clock. Why? Because it adds stress. It goes "beep" and game on. You find out quick you start to miss shots. Take a class... Or 12. Not a 4hr gun safety class. A multi day defensive shooting class. Can't afford time, ammo, class? I understand because its a lot of money. Then use the internet. There are many drills online. I would even go so far to say that even if takes a long time to save and you only go once, find that class and attend. You will walk away with drills and guidance that you can use on your own.
Finally, take a deep look inside and figure out why you carry. Do you carry and how you normally react to bad situations. Are you the kind of person that goes towards the car accident or the yelling to try and help? Or do you walk away? If a person is yelling help do you just call 911? Or do you try to render aid.
Note: option A walking away from bad stuff and not rendering aid does NOT make you a bad person. Just makes you human. And walking TOWARDS yelling doesn't make you a "hero". Makes you a decent human being.
