Default Things I've Learned about Gun Combat

This is new to me.

If you're trained, that is, like every Traveller character who has even level zero in a gun combat-type skill, here are some of the things that go into this training.

* you know that shoulder or leg hits can hit an artery, causing a bleed-out.
* you know that a torso hit can cause slow, painful death, internal bleeding, sepsis...
* when you draw a gun in a gunfight, you inherently accept the potential responsibility for someone else dying. I.E. you've already dealt with that scenario in your mind at some level.
* when you draw a gun your adrenaline kicks in, which means you lose fine motor skill and your focus narrows; the wrong focus can be fatal.
* you're trained to not freeze.
