It really doesn't do anything but people still jump around like jackasses because they are reactionary twits who just copy what other morons are doing. This is why I LOVE games with jump delays on landing. It keeps people from being morons in front of me.
I had an instructor (either Tom Givens or Louis Awerbuck) who relayed an interesting flashlight story. An officer was approaching a suspect with weapon drawing and flashlight on. He was using an FBI hold for his flashlight, i.e. pistol in strong hand; flashlight in weak hand raised above
his head. During the exchange of fire, the bad guy shot for the light. The bullet went clean through the flashlight housing.
