Absolutely.
One of the biggest obstacles is with actual employment of the weapon in a realistic manner. I know a lot of people who can shoot at paper and think that's enough. They don't practice their draws from their CCW holsters, they don't use holsters that work well, and they don't practice the aforementioned skills of tactical shooting and moving. Many people do this stuff, but many don't.
There are other skills that are also important. Yelling verbal commands and warnings, and performing 360 scans to identify or eliminate more potential threats.
