    If you're having fun, you're probably not being safe. And if you're aiming, you aren't going to hit what you're shooting at.

    Just how many people have you killed on the range, Robert?

    One big point is this is aimed at very new shooters. And is pointing them at its more important to hold the gun still than to aim in close quarters. If someone is 10Ft from you do you really need to take it slow and line up everything to hit center mass if you hold the gun still nope. If you dont aim will you hit the second button down dead center nope but in self defense if you hit within a 6-8 inch circle of that button you have a very high chance of stopping the threat.

    Why is there a period between "repeatedly" and "In"?

    Maybe it's the "upstroke".

    Seen those videos a few months ago, tried it out a bit. Seemed to work for just scoring hits, but if I want tight groups, I'm gonna keep focusing on the front sight and not the target.

    Yep. I completely understand what he's saying about aiming, but being consistent in your presentation is just as important. He keeps saying not moving the gun out of alignment is most important, but isn't addressing how to get aligned in the first place.

    the only times I've had to fire (attacking dogs) i distinctly remember sighting, cause I knew that a head shot was necessary (ie, .22lr)

    IDK about all that. I'd like to know how many deer he's shot at 300+ yards without aiming. Or anything smaller than a 2 story building at that range without aiming. Are there stories of people just closing their eyes squeezing & hitting, sure. I don't think you're going to consistently be successful with that approach though. But it's a free country so blast away!

    Did you happen to watch the vid and read the thread. Its about close life threatening situations. Where there is no real need to take the extra 2 seconds to get that perfect window frame line up. The extra time used to do that could lead to a knife in your neck or a kick to the nuts.

    It is a skill you should at least test out in case you are in a hand to hand situation where you cant get the gun in front of your face to aim.
