I would like some input from folks that have actually been in a "close and personal shoot-to-survive" encounter. I've always been a believer in practicing point and shoot rapid fire at 3,5,7, and 10 yards. So my question is; in a panic, high stress, maximum adrenaline, survival mode, situation, do sights, trigger pull, proper grip, etc. even factor in ?? IMHO I think not.

We must, however, learn to hit the vitals that will take the fight out of the threat as quickly as possible.
Very well stated reality check for all.

Yoda, you're an old fart. I too learned the 2 to the body, 1 to the head, as the Mozamibique drill, but by the time I retired from the pistol team the army was going politically correct and calling it the body armor drill.

Alky, I learned the aiming point for center mass was figured by mentally drawing a line from nipple to nipple, then trying to cut that line in equal halves. A little off either way still works, dead center cuts the spine and they drop like a sack of rocks.

Whether in a violent storm, on a sinking ship, in a fist fight, or a SD gunfight staying calm is imperative to survival. Acting like a scared little girl will not be productive. Firefighters probably know this better than most of the public. It is skill most people can learn.

Too many people train, and train, and train, and shoot, and shoot, and shoot, and still miss the target when it counts.

Sorry but as soon as I saw the Chicken wing, bladed stance for "Operators", I knew this was not for me. I taught police firearms training for years and this would not work with most police officers. SWAT guys would probably like it cause its for Operators.
