    Massad Ayoob Resolves Point Shooting Debate

    In November of 1990 Mas Ayoob started the latest Point vs. Aimed fire debate with his article "Point Shooting--Combat Hoax" in Handguns magazine.
    Flash forward to 2012 where, in his new book, "Combat Shooting"
    (Where both Roger Phillips and Tom Kohl--A/K/A 7677-- are mentioned)
    Mas writes this,
    " A lot of egos, my own included, have become involved in the heated debate over aimed fire versus point shooting, over body position index versus visual index. If you can accomplish both, and have both types of response instantly accessible, you are already past the argument.
    In other words--learn both!!!
    Amen to that....

    They both have their place. A well rounded shooter will know both and be proficient enough with both to switch back and forth as required by the situation.
    My rifle and pistol are tools, I am the weapon.

    And Lord, if today is truly the day you call me home
    Let me die in a pile of empty brass."

    And Shepards we shall be, for Thee, my Lord, for Thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, So that our feet may swiftly carry out thy command,
    And we shall flow a river forth to Thee, And teeming with souls shall it ever be,

    Whew! I'm glad this controversy is over

    Now if we can get him to settle a few others...

    I did not know there was a debate here. It's just one tool in the tool box.

    If you got the time then two-handed aim shooting is better. Depends on if you are running, how close the guy is, etc etc
