a lot of half assed guns, be half assed with them

or a very few, really superb fighting guns and be a top hand with those few (with either hand, under common conditions of darkness, moving, using cover, on movers, cover users, etc). Those are your choices, unless somebody''s paying for all your guns and ammo AND paying you to do nothing but shoot. Working stiffs don't have time or money for more.

being really good takes hundreds of hours of practice per year, and about 10k rds per year of live ammo, on top of airsoft, .177 and dryfire. 1-2k rds per year of 223, 3-4k of .22 thru the .22 unit in the rifle, and 5k rds per year of 9mm thru the pistol. IF you go at it right, this will MAINTAIN top skill at realistic challenges (IF you ever COULD attain such, of course) Attaining it will take twice as much ammo, as well as $1000's of $ spent on instruction. Why is why only a very few thousand men and almost no women in the US have such levels of ability.

I guess that this leaves you out, doesn't it convict? My wife and I put an excess of 10,000 rds down range per year between the 2 of us and I'm retired. Lots of time to reload and a number of firearms that I have purchased over 2 decades (while you were wasting you life in jail). Just because you lack the capability, don't assume other are as bad off as you are.
