In my post: Point Shooting or Aiming
I asked what methods were preferred Point shooting or Aimed Shooting. Never did I imagine that there were so many great concepts and instructors out there that would respond. THANKS EVERYONE!
I also posted the same question on 1911Forums site and got quite a few outlooks there as well. I would love to visit every instructional site that there is, lol but my wallet just wont let me do that. Last Friday I ordered the FIST FIRE videos and I'll be honest to you all, I am looking for a local place (virginia) and TSA is only an hour away, so they immediately were a good choice. I havent seen any other instructional videos yet, but I'll tell you... I was very pleased with what I received. 2 DVD's and DR's book.
I told TSA that if I liked what I saw then I would probably be signing up for one of their 2 day classes as long as the DVD’s were what I thought they were… well they were and I will! And of course you know what happened, I watched them on Saturday and Sunday I was at the range trying to see if I learned anything. And yes, I know, its not like sitting in a class and learning first hand but I’ll bet you a box of ammo that everyone does it! Lol
Well I had eye surgery last week and everything up close is still fuzzy so there is NO way that I can see the sights to use them if I tried, they just look like a blurry molten blob… Hopefully in a month or so they will be at least clear enough to use the sights if I needed them but Sunday was all point and shoot. And I was surprised to see success in the form of at least hitting a big blue silhouette @ 7 yrds. I had to think too much about the weak hand wrist lock, thumb position, elbow locked, elbow bent and indexing for it to be considered a effective trip, but it was definitely a worthwhile and eye opener at that. And if the big blue silhouette was a bad guy then he wouldnt be around anymore.
I'm sure that if there is anyone that can learn from just watching a DVD then they could from these, but I'm kindof a hands on kindof learner and need that immediate feedback to show me what I'm going right and wrong, so I will be signed up for a class soon. I don't want to start any arguements about who started the process or who's best at it. But if the classes are ANYTHING like the DVD's, then DR Middlebrook has it GOING ON! It's amazing and I hope I can learn it to the point that I can use it as one of my tools!
Good Shooting all........
