    Excellent resource, thanks for the link. Great to see someone teaching these techniques which I have also followed (almost identically) based on modified Fairbairne/Applegate methods for over 50 years.
    Practice, practice, practice!
    Dry fire, dry fire, dry fire!

    No problem guys--I see a lot of confusion as to what point shooting is so hopefully this will clear it up.
    I made a DVD with 7677 for Paladin Press a few years back which is still be sold by them and Amazon. Title ( bad title, not chosen by me) is Shoot Him To The Ground.

    Just ordered the vid from Paladin. Super reference, appreciate the approach.
    IMHO, more folks should be concentrating on point shooting, and as Col. Rex had said
    "Bullseyes don't shoot back". I had some Applegate training, but not by him, many years ago, 1960's.
    Met him briefly in Las Vegas before he passed. Great man in all regards!
    I do carry the Gerber combat folder too. Both edges sharpened as he would have it.
    Train with the simple setup, post and tires, hay bale, etc.

    Nice to see that there are other, wiser "'seasoned citizens" here.
    For a second I thought that Brownie and I were the only ones here just north of 60.

    Ordered a copy of the DVD, while my training in and of point shooting follows your outline, getting another person's view points on it can not hurt. There is always more that can be learned no matter how much you think you know.

    Point shooting is a very important skill to learn. Whenever I go to a range, I am surprised at how few people actually practice point shooting of any form.

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    Maybe that is because how often point shooting has been criticized in both the internet and gun media.

    I don't see it being a either or, there is a place for both point shooting and sighted fire. If you know how to do both your body will pick the one needed in the situation you find your self in without your thinking about it. It will just happen, you'll see or not see what is needed to win.

    Excellent presentation, thanks for posting it.

    I met Rex Applegate at a couple of gun expos in the 90's before he passed on. He was selling his knives and books. One of the dumbest things I ever did was to not buy one of each. He would have signed them even. Please kick me, again... Sigh.

    Absolute truth~ Did I mention practice???? Point shooting is easily learned and once you have a grasp, it's pretty automatic.
    Been point shooting since my first trip to the tropical paradise in 1963. And I still practice.

    Yes--point shooting is a compliment--not a replacement--for aimed fire.
    Which is why I do not engage in the " Point Vs Aimed Fire" debates so often seen on the internet.
