- Start the series whenever they felt ready.

- No life and death stress.

But I guess Oswald shooting just above the lowest possible points to remain an armed Marine in his last shooting test explains it all, doesn’t it?
This is patently false.

For the 1967 CBS recreation, attempting to shoot under an artificially shortened timeframe of 5.6 seconds, 7 of 11 shooters matched or bettered Oswald's performance. 4 of them did it on their first try. One went 3 for 3, all on the inner target in 5 seconds flat.
