A lot of people will tell you that you can not point shoot with a 1911. They are wrong.
Another point shooting advocate among us!

When it comes to handgunning my first love is a Colt 1911 followed closely by point shooting.

It is THE talent that will save your life.

Welcome to our small fraternity of point shooting Amanda.

From Cooper’s book, Fighting Handguns published in 1958.
Let’s hear about point shooting in Cooper's own words....
....."It's an axiom that hitting your target is your main concern, and the best way to hit is to use your sights, but circumstances do arise in which the need for speed is so great, and the range so short, that you must hit by pointing alone, without seeing your gun at all.
...Pointer fire is not as hard to learn as sighting, once you realize it's range limitations. using the 1911 auto-pistol I have found that I can teach the average infantryman to stay on a silhouette at 10 yards--using pointer fire in two-shot bursts--more easily that I can get him into that 25 yard bullseye using slow fire and sights.
Of course this sort of shooting is strictly a way of obtaining body hits at essentially indoor ranges (30 feet and under)…
...But up close pointer fire can be murderously effective, and its mastery is often the difference between life and death."
(pg 97-98)

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Well it is great to be in good company. I have a pretty good article on it at the house. When I get home in a few weeks I will remember to post it up. There are some things in it that I don't agree with. Though over all it is some good info.

well as of right now i have not been to the range yet....work keeps me busy lol, but i bought a couple of hundred rounds of hollow point winchesters, they were on sale for like $20 a box at the local place here, they were actually cheaper than some target ammo, but hopefully this wednesday i will go put some rounds through her

Those are some nice photo's of the PM-7.

You might catch some flack for getting a 1911 chambered in .40s&w, but you did great!!

Now get a DW in a 9mm!
