I love when people say, " I want to maintain distance--get both hands on the gun--use my sights at all times, etc, etc".
Well, I will take it a step further and state for the record that I never want to have to fire a shot in anger.
Funny thing about bad guys--they really don't give a damn about our wants and may force us to do things that we do not want to do.
Hopefully they will not force you to do somethings that you never wanted to train/learn/prepare for.
Which is why I practice all types of pistol shooting, from zero to 200 yards.
Including point shooting.
