    Any links for more info? Glad to hear someone like Ayoob has come up with/taught this method. Makes me feel a little less "out there".

    Don’t mess with the guy who can barely stand up. His remaining options for self-defense don't include your survival.

    Does everybody just get a brand new car from mom and dad when they turn 16 nowadays? We had to use our paper route/snow shoveling/gras cutting money to buy our cars back in the day.

    My parents just told me "no" you are not getting a car. End of story, haha.

    As a side note, the videos of shootings on youtube.com seem to support what is said on this link.

    If and when a situation pops up in a Wally World parking lot, you'll be lucky to have 2 seconds to make a life-saving decision.
    Agreed. If and when, your training will dictate the outcome. Be nice if you have time to aim and stuff. Probably not.

    There are numerous real street testimonies from people that have had lasers on their guns when it came time to defend themselves. You can probably see them on Crimson Trace's website, also in their advertisements. And sure it's advertising - advertising of the best kind - people using them in real SD situations to protect their life. You need to read some.

    I'm not especially warmed up to lasers myself but I see more and more even, 'old-timers', attitudes changing toward lasers. I think what happens is they use them and find out just how well they can work.

    Yeah, but they don't teach that anymore - they now teach sighted fire including lots of red dot and laser stuff.

    Let's be careful here guys. Point shooting is a very contraversial issue, not saying it's good or bad, but big claims are made on both sides - both sides have successes and failures. But this will be every bit as contraversial, debated, and unresolvable as revolvers vs semis, 9mm vs .45ACP, etc.

    Point shooting is a good tool to have in one's toolbox. Is it applicable to every situation? No...but knowing how to, nad practicing it, is not a bad thing, imho.

    The index finger thing, though...ridiculous.

    I’m rating this thread ‘Best of the Year for 2011’ (so far…). It’s certainly thought provoking and filled with lively and constructive opinions. Clearly, both categories of techniques should be incorporated into training to provide a well-rounded skill set. I believe the main thing I learned from all this; is that I need to stop putting off my attendance to Mass Ayoob’s MAG-40 course.

    Ditto, If I have to read one more thing about Ruby using his index finger I'll puke. The guy was missing part of his index finger for Pete's sake, that's why he shot the way he did.

    I don't believe it needs to be too complicated. Shoot a lot at a range where you can do dynamic movements at varying distances. Set up scenarios. Get a timer and do it on the clock to add pressure. Remember to move first.

    But mostly shoot a lot.
