    I like it!!!! seems like a good thing. I just gave up target shooting and I am strictly point shooting on silhouettes. I leave the bullseyes for my long guns.

    Thanks....but for close range one can still point shoot a long gun.

    Very good link.
    Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.

    Matthew,

    I was looking for distances in the thread and all I could find were 8 yards, 0-6 yards, and 10 yards.

    Do you have drills/techniques for farther out?

    Thanks Matthew... this is a great reference.

    All the training I've had has pooh poohed point shooting but I want to explore it for myself before I make up my mind. This looks like it will help immensely.

    Again, thanks!

    Good lessons. Don't train your instincts out of yourself by putting too much emphasis on sights, breathing, stance, or other non-real world fight stopping skills. A study gave guns to total novices and trained officers and presented them with a sudden threat. Those who had never handled a gun reacted much, much faster with greater accuracy by using their instincs, crouching, and point shooting head shots. A lot of Fairbairn's ideas are still relevant.

    Thanks for all of the positive feedback.
    While I have played with point shooting out to 20 yards I think that at distances greater than 10-15 yards one should transition to the sights.
    Of course one can practice to see the maximum distance one can take this skill out to.

    Excellent points.
    Much of the old knowledge is still of value today.

    For years I have been a pure "front sight focus/flash front sight " shooter. A few years ago I realized that at close contact distances I didn't need to use my sights as much as I needed to be fast. I began a training regimen where I simply brought my gun in line with my sight line and engaged the target. While it isn't as surgical as "front sight focus" it is infinitely faster.

    I have made this a regular part of my training plan. I have found that I get hits, of acceptable accuracy, out to 15 yards using this method but I prefer to use my sights after 10 yards because for me that is where the "speed versus accuracy trade-off" seems to merge.
