    If your shooting nice tight groups, you are shooting too slow. Shoot as fast as you can, as slow as you must.

    The problem with "hydrostatic shock" is that there is zero evidence that it's a wounding mechanism. The argument behind "hydrostatic shock" is like saying that if you punch someone in the arm hard enough, you'll stop his heart or burst blood vessels in his brain and kill him. It just doesn't work that way.

    Multiple shots do not multiply the effects. The fraction of a second between shots allows the body and brain to deal with each separately.

    Simultaneous shots, either from multiple shooters or from a single round of buckshot, cause the autonomous part of the brain to shut the concious part of the brain down. This is one reason buckshot is so effective.

    I always figured buckshot was so effective because it put around 10 hits into an area roughly the size of my fist at across-the-room distance...

    I believe that most of us, my self definitely included, need more practice at that.

    Wow, just noticed the date on this

    I have human size torso targets set all over my range at various distances, I practice shooting at all of them. While CQ shooting is primarily going to be used, you need to be able to shoot further targets efficiently. This goes for pistol or rifle.
