All those people in that study had a gun? That very much effects their confidence and how they carried themselves in the encounter. You will be more confident if you feel you have a good defense. Also a lot of people who carry a gun also take other steps to avoid ecounters. Kind of how less concealed carry people get mugged. Not because everyone knows they have a gun, but rather because they avoid those situations that would put them at higher risk.
