I also was very good rabbit or grouse hunting using a single shot .410! I used the point shooting method with it and almost never missed...always seemed to miss moving targets when I tried to aim it though. Dad said it was "instintive" shooting.
Army was training soldiers to PS in the 50's out your index finger along the side of the gun and your middle finger on the trigger. Where you point is where you shoot. I do this, on the range on a silouette I point at the shoulder I hit the shoulder. When practiced enough it can be used off balance, when backing away, in low light, one handed, etc.. It becomes MUSCLE MEMORY. Look at Jerry Miculek fastest shooter, not just lightning fast but acurate also. Even with his follow-up shots. Your muscles remember.
