JD said "halter tops". Almost as good as "free beer".

Getting back to the OP's question, I still don't believe that physical training is necessary to effectively fire a weapon. That being said, I do believe that is is necessary to get in good physical shape and stay there if you intend to carry concealed or aggressively defend your property and loved ones.

Take into consideration the Wack Job who breaks into your home has two friends. They are all high on PCP or Meth. You had better be prepared to do some defensive close quarters combat to stay alive. In the dark, you may not be able to determine the number of Jack Wads who have broken in, a dangerous situation at best. At 61, I have decided I am not going to the ground with an intruder. I will maintain separation and put a bullet or four into them before trying to wrestle with them for my weapon.

That is why the weight training and my desire to find a martial arts class closer than 106 miles from my house!!

Some great information from you all.. thanks.

I had a conversation at work with a few folks about this last week.

One thing that was brought up was that the "old schoolers" probably did most of their shooting with revolvers instead of semi-autos ( not necessarily so). Revolver technique is *apparently* a little different because "limp wristing" is not really an issue with a revolver. I.e., you can do as the old schoolers say and just guide the pistol. For semi-autos you need to keep a firmer grip or FTEs could occur. There was some debate on whether anything above a 9mm could cause "limp wrist" FTE.
