    I practice only point and shoot. I rarely "target practice". I also like to get within 4-5 feet from a target , draw and shoot from the hip. Its more realistic and gives one more of a sense of what it would be like to have to shoot someone at close range. Using the sites, lining them up and aiming just isn't a pracitical way of defensive shooting. ( But it can be fun)..

    I've been hip shooting for over 35 years, started with a Stoger Luger and a mess of bricks of .22's on my Grandfathers farm in Tenn at his bottle dump, ah the good old days.

    Now I use my HK USP when in the Desert and take a mess of Wolf's to play with/ Sooting cow pies and cans from the hip is a hoot it gets better when you play skip the can and can keep it moving.

    After all these years and hundreds of thousands of rounds I can put the whole mag in a pie plate at 21' from the hip no problem. Which brings me to my modified Mozambique drill, quick draw N two center mass from the hip, then no 3 in the head, all three rounds must be cleared in 2 seconds or less, and a real big range with a real big back stop like a 1,000 foot hill in the desert is a real aid for this practice.
