Target shooting can be great fun; you should try it. Sporting clays with a shotgun; paper targets with a BB gun, or a .177 rifle, or a .22; hell, plinking at water filled pop bottles: all are good ways to introduce yourself to sporting firearms, and they aren't very expensive either.
my personal favourite is liberaldemocraticsocialismwithinaframeworkofamarketeconomy-cola
Tasty, but still has too much Marx extract in it for my liking. :)
I would prefer some Voltaire extract on that, it's less agressive.
At least commu-cola is free.
As long as you don't look at your taxes...
The problem is that a mass shooter is going to look for a soft, target rich environment. Like a crowded shopping mall. Those places not only ban guns legally carried by their customers, but even their security guards are not armed. No resistance.
The down side to your plan is that all those other people in the mall will also be looking for a place to hide creating a scarcity of adequate cover. Another glitch in that plan is that many mass shooters seek out those hiding. The Aurora, CO Chuck E. Cheese shooter did that. So did the Aurora theater shooter.
Having been unarmed and down range from active shooters I can tell you my thoughts were, "I wish someone would shoot that son of a bitch!" That thought continued into wishing I were armed as well while the police traded shots with these guys. Having covered stories of mass shootings and not so mass shootings, but shootings that occurred in public where there was a specific target, most of the survivors and some of those wounded tend to express some wish to magically have a weapon appear in their hands. A few more expressed regret at having left their weapon in the car. (Aurora theater shooting survivor for one.)
 On two occasions while driving ambulance. It's just one of the fun filled benefits of being a paramedic in a large city with ghettos and public housing. For this discussion we will not cover being shot at during the course of my military service.
My "plan" wasn't limited to hiding- using the surroundings to your advantage could involve anything from helping people get to alternate exits (something that malls usually have a lot of) to seizing an opportunity with makeshift weaponry. Again though, it remains to be seen whether any such "plan" would be feasible for me to carry out.
As for the thoughts of survivors of such incidents, I can't argue with those, save to say that I still think any possible benefits would depend heavily on the situation and who is carrying the firearms, and that I would rather the focus be on preventing incidents entirely.
There is a Cyber Morndas sale on Origin just so y'all know. Got DA: Inquisition for 15 buckaroos.
Do you have any thoughts on how to do that?
