    Have dry fired using this method with my Glock-26..and a two handed grip not one handed..it is doable...but is it effective...have not had time to range test this yet.

    yep i tried...for about 5 minutes..... it feels really weird and does not promote a secure grip on a firearm. Heres a thought... for those of us who use the thumbs forward method, doesnt it do the same thing ? I personally have made it a habit to practice close range point shooting ....just not using this method... for spped and necessity.

    Not sure I comprehend your comment (not your comment just me)..when I grip my Glock, my thumbs are not really pointing at the target but to the left of target (small hands short thumbs)....

    May have seen toooooo many Hickock45 Vids and others where shooters are deadly accurate rapid fire style..so I know they are not rear/front sight alining on every trigger pull...they must be using some point and shoot technique.

    Are you left handed? How do you get your thumbs (running down the left side) to point to the right of the target?

    I haven't tried this method of pointing with my strong side index finger. I use the thumbs-forward with a two-handed grip to try to accomplish the same thing. I'll give this a shot, but it seems a bit weird to pull the trigger with my middle finger.

    As a guitar player I can advise (for certain) that a decline in normal finger-dexterity exists across your hand from index finger to pinky. IMHO, I'm gonna' keep my most dexterous finger on the bang-switch of my most dangerous tool. So I'll point...with the muzzle!

    I am not changing my draw and technique to suit a singular purpose. It looks well and good if you already have your gun in your hand..but then again, how many folks have that luxury when someone surprises you at 21 feet.

    I will stick with standard draw, point shoot as need be while a gain the front sight.

    The NRA talks about a flash sight picture. While I agree with the premise of point shooting in the proper context, I think the video is misleading. With PROPER training you can get accurate hits on target. Everyone has a NEW idea on how to shoot, unless you are missing your index finger, use your index finger for the bang switch. Most of the time, I will not make absolutes, but with this I will. OP if you are seeking knowledge of point shooting look to Saurez international, Rob Pincus, Travis Haley, Chris Costa. Please do not mess with internet Gun-fu......

    I don't like the index point/middle on trigger take on point shooting. If I shoot close enough to require a one hand grip, I'll shoot from retention position. If I can use two, I point through my support hand thumb. I have done this under stress. Last week, a friend and I practiced rapid fire in 2-5 shot strings. We were able to put all shots on standard printer paper sized targets from 7 yards, with the majority on fist sized targets. Practice pays.

    5shot has been around for some time now. When he post his way of point shooting on forums it does not get good reviews. Keep all the fingers you can on the grip of the gun. A firm grip is more important than pointing with your finger. If you wish to learn to point shoot then learn from a instructor who knows the basics of true point shooting. I learned from and recommend Roger Phillips, Saurez International instructor.

    Yes point shooting does and will work. The longer the distance the more reference needed of the gun but hits can be made without hard focus on sights from some rather long distances.
