And there you have a demo on at least looking over the barrel if not front sight/vs true point shooting.

How many THOUSANDS of rounds do you think it took to get that kind of muscle memory?!

That's really cool, but remember they are not using standard carry holsters and no cover garment.
I can do that in my sleep....No, really. I dream about being that fast. : )

Oddly enough, and I haven't researched the guy, but some people just have a natural skill that gives them a leg up for things like point shooting, I think. I really don't see this guy practicing this thousands of times - he looks too casual. I could be mistaken. Thanks for the link!

Well, actually, I'd rather be smooth and accurate. This kind of speed, while dazzling, isn't really that conducive to a good self defense framework.

I was actually quite surprised at Vogel's yearly round count. I know many local/regional-level competition shooters as well as other "students of the gun" (i.e. those who do not compete, but pursue training as perhaps more than a hobby) who easily match or exceed his yearly live-fire count. Let's put it this way: if round count is a judge of how well one shoots, I should easily shoot way better than Bob. But, alas, I don't. There's a lot more to it than just slinging lead downrange.
What took me by surprise was Vogel's live-fire:dry-fire ratio, as well as his confession of intensifying his dry-fire training immediately after intense live-fire sessions specifically with the goal of eradicating any "bad habits" he may have developed while shooting live.
I'm not saying this to say that live-fire is not important. Rather, it's to put into context that live-fire isn't the only viable gauge as to a shooter's proficiency.
