Nor did I, and I assume neither did the vast majority of forum readers, fortunately

However if you look at the records, I cannot think of any planned gear-up landing on a hard runway that went wrong in the past couple of decades. The plane might not be useable again, but everyone walks away - that qualifies as a good landing.

As you correctly point out, ditching is a different story.
