  3. If you practice shooting bu pulling the trigger with your thumb enough you can get good at it.

    My point is by practicing enough makes you a better shooter not a particular method.

    I find it interesting on this forum that we are tempted to flame other's ideas so much. Discussion and disagreement is wonderful, but...hmm..

    Now, as to the 1911 issue, you can talk bad about my momma, but don't you ever..... lol

First round off at the waist as soon as it clears the holster and pointing at target. Second round off as it's brought to my mid body center as the left hand is coming up to support. Evaluate and repeat if necessary. THIS is self defense shooting, again IMHO!

  8. Thanks for all your comments, and particularly the one "why not at least give it a listen," or words to that effect.

    Read about the same comment on another site's thread, and sent that poster an "e-mail" in which I said that hopefully his speaking out wouldn't get him "run out of town." I also mentioned that it is very odd how many of those in the gun world have a death wish when it comes to shooting, because if they don't understand or like something, they reject it out of hand.

    ..........

    As to the 1911, great piece of machinery, I read the article about it's test by the military.

    Still, because of the design of the slide stop, you can't use the index finger along the side of the gun to aim it.

    So in a CQB situation when you can't use the sights for any reason, you won't have the option of using a CQ method that works and is deadly, and which the US Army says works.

    .............

    Here's a link to my latest video on my low-tec aiming aid 4 fast, automatic, and accurate aiming at close quarters.

    YouTube - Aiming Aid For Fast, Automatic, & Accurate Aiming

    The aiming aid is patented, but individuals are welcome to add one to their personal gun/s at their own risk and expense. I have the patent, so I can say that. US 6023874

    Ditto for Police Agencies.

    AIMED Point Shooting or P&S
    A link to info on how to do that.

    .......................

    With the new flat sided mini's (S&W Bodyguard,Walther PPS, Beretta PX4, Sig P290), the device could be a big help in insuring fast, mechanical, and correct sight alignment, and fast and accurate target engagement even though the mini's are very short.

    Of course, if there are sights on the gun, and if circumstances allow for their use, the sights should be used.

    Also, if the light is bad, or the situation is a dynamic one, or if the sights are dark and the target is dressed in black and you are at close quarters, you still will have a viable SD option at your disposal.

    Consider the aiming aid to be a Sight Shooting assistant, not a device to thwart it.

    A couple of magazines and three or four targets at 15 feet +/-, can prove that to be the case.

    .................................................. ..

    Even the NRA, recognizes the need for shooting options in real-life violent encounters.

    In Chapter 6 - of the NRA's guide to the basics of personal protection in the home that was published in 2000, we find that "...real-life violent encounters occur at very close range, often in reduced-light conditions, and are over in a matter of seconds. One study of Police shootings in a major urban area showed that the majority of encounters took place after dark, at 3 yards or less, in less than 3 seconds, and involved the firing of an average of three shots."

    It goes on to say: "Often, either the assailant or the defender - or both - are moving rapidly during the encounter. Such conditions do not permit the careful alignment of the sights on a specific aiming point on the target."*

    Thanks again for your comments, and best regards.
    A pistol is not a rifle, so why shoot one like it is.

    There is point shooting where you point the front sight in the direction of the target without a good sight picture, then there is finger point shooting that is espoused by the OP.

    Two different tyes of shooting. Please do not be confused.
