    Thats where we are different. I will push my self to fail, so that I have the knowledge of what needs to be done to get better. For me, my skill level is never good enough.....
    I half agree with both statements. If I were teaching a new shooter, I would do everything possibly to let him succeed.

    Once the basic skills are there and the shooter has established a basic performance level from which he intends to improve, I think you need to push to failure in order to really build new skill. I would call that an intermediate level approach to performance. And, of course, that doesn't mean work to failure every time you touch a gun; everyone needs positive reinforcement mixed in, too.

    Returning to competition shooting, I can practice speeding up my draws, splits, and transitions until my end result gets more sloppy than I'd like. For match day, I need to go at (say) 90% of that failure speed, because that's what I can maintain for 8 or 10 stages and still get a satisfactory hit rate.

    agreed, training slow to develop speed is the way to go

    Further to summarize what others have said, I post three more pertinent quotes found in Dave Spaulding's excellent and highly-recommended book, Handgun Combatives (of which there is now a second edition):

    "The secrect to winning a gunfight is taking your time in a hurry" - Wyatt Earp

    "When the distances get close, you don't have to be good, you just have to be lucky". - Clint Smith

    "Perfect practice makes perfect" - John Shaw, Founder of the Mid-South Institute for Self-Defense Shooting. This last one I heard from my music teacher at least thrty years ago.

    A lot of other good quotes and advice author, Dave Spaulding, includes in his book.
