Most shoot outs will occur up close and they will be some what of a surprise. The body reacts a certain way when facing life threatening encounters such as being in a shoot out. I have listed these actions as the following:
1. You will face the threat,
2. Lower your center of gravity,
3. Place both of your arms out in front you as to protect yourself.
4. Both eyes will be wide open and focusing on the threat (Tunnel Vision).
Any shooting style that covers these reactions should be used and practiced regularly. I myself practice shooting in a low isosceles stance with both arms locked out and both eyes open (Point Shooting). I use the same stance for aimed fire as well. I have included a couple of videos to show how some have reacted in shoot outs.
