With training it becomes automatic. That is why JERRY MICULIK is acurate even though his speed is blazing. His muscles remember. Contrary to the lib, anti gun anti military bozos, the Military does not make robots. The training is so that even under stress most can do what is needed automatically. Load, fire, clear a jamb, with everything going on around you your body does what it remembers even if your brain is busy.
Learn to shoot Point Shooting, putting night sights on your pistol looks pretty, but where the muzzle points the bullet should go. When PS become automatic, your eyes are already moving to the next threat even as you pull the trigger. Target shooting and nice groups are great but be able to hit a target wihtout the sights or offhanded. Plinking and aiming I can hit a golf ball 25 feet away, PS at 25 feet I can always hit a target. It aint dead center but it is on target.
At a range told Brother in law with his SW 357 to aim for the shoulder hit 3 of 4. Same gun I hit 4 of 4 PS never shot his pistol. As I said it is train, train, train. Had an instructor that said Rifle sights are needed. Pistol sights are not. You need to be aware of your surroundings, analyze the threats PS is fast when your muscles remember.
Mike, welcome to the forum! I know that there are some here that take practice seriously. I don't mean shooting at a bullseys target, but shooting at a full sized B-27 sized target, and doing it on the move. If you are not moving in a gun fight, you are a stationary target. Movement will get you to cover, or concealment, if available. But you have to be able to place rounds on target as you move. Try moving while looking to get those sights adjusted, and alinged properly!
You should be moving before you get that gun out! Because the BG already has a gun in his hand!
Y'all be safe now, ya hear!
