    graydude Sounds like what you do what might be called Flash Sight Picture shooting style and sweeping the trigger more often than following the reset type of shooting . I had a Vietnam vet attempt to teach me a style of shooting and trigger pull before they had names back in the late '70s when I was stalk hunting hogs after telling him a large sow ran me up a little tree a few feet as it tried to hook me as it ran by . But as distance to the target increases your focus will become tighter and that trigger fingers movement becomes slower and more refined . maybe !

    I haven't read this entire thread (waiting for the TV miniseries to come out), but I do feel compelled to say something. This is why I scoff at the folks who say things like, "I feel perfectly safe carrying a .25 caliber mouse gun, because SHOT PLACEMENT IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN CALIBER!"

    Sure, shot placement is important, but good luck with that when you're surprised suddenly in a parking lot and the BG is already closing in on you with a tire iron.

    Good luck with that regardless of what you carry. I would argue that availability and speed of presentation is more important than either shot placement or caliber.

    I would argue that if it's a tire you are already lucky - lucky it's not a crow bar.
    There is a solution but we are not Jedi... not yet.
