Just off my range and wanted to put my thoughts down while they were still fresh in my feeble mind. When going out to shoot today I was wondering in a crisis situation (IE: somebody coming at you w/knife in hand) how many of us are so well trained or would have time to get into that perfect weaver stance and line up the front and rear sights dead center on the bad guy. I doubt that I would. So at about six yards using my Sigma 9mm and an IPSC taget as my bad guy I started at the low ready and would point the pistol looking over the top of the slide and fire 2 to 3 rounds. Out of 33 shots 27 were in the -0 circle (about the size of a small dinner plate). I also practiced shooting at about 2-3 yards locking my elbow into my hip and firing a couple rounds and moving back from the target while assuming a two handed grip and firing a few more. The idea is not putting the pistol in grabbing distance of the bad guy and trying to put some distance between you and him. I do not clain any of this as ideas of mine. Some of it I picked up on Handguns on the SMC channel. Curious to see if anyone else practices different techniques.
