Combat Shooting or Point Shooting

Pin Shooting With A .45acp. Always practice with a .22 and fight with a .45. You do not need sights to hit a target. In a gun fight you are not going to have time to look around for your sights.

This is point shooting. No sights, save time. Combat shooting does not utilize the sights on the gun. Instead the shooter relies oh his innate ability to to point at the target and place the bullet where he looks. There is nothing new about it. The United States Army has been teaching this method of shooting for many many years. Take a loot at the once issued 1911 style pistol. The sights are very rudimentary. Less there than there. The front sight is no more than a nub. In any light but the brightest very hard to see. The Automatic Pistol, Caliber .45, M1911A1 as it was designated in 1940 had served since 1911 to 1985. It is still in service to specialized units of the armed forces of the United States.

Point shooting is not a perishable skill. In this video it is the first time back at the range after a winter of cold, real damn cold. hospitals and lung infections.

Shooting with the left and right hand. Everyone knows that you should be able to use a handgun with either hand. There is no guarantee that you will be able to use both hands in a fight. Unfortunately we all practice with the off hand too little. Me included.

The zipper is a series of shots from belly to throat.
