5:21 of truth, however I don't agree that trigger pull or travel has noting to do with it. I have micro dots on 2 semi autos and 1 Revolver they help allot. Holding a Semi auto firmly is a must do, they need the recoil to cycle. If the firearm doesn't cycle your not going to hit anything anyways. I don't hold my Revolver nearly as firm as I do a Semi, and I shoot more accurate with a Revolver also.

I think the main purpose of the video was the anticipation factor of folks learning how to shoot you can't aim until you can pull the trigger correctly and for that reason they state do not aim until you can.

Look at the sight on his pistol. Seems like an expensive addition for something he does not need.

(Edit)
Good video other than the fake accent, he's got the draw down pat. The accent not so much, conceal is fine. I try not to put myself in a position where its needed. Both my semi autos have belt clips, I can get out to a fire position about 4 tenths of a second faster than a good conceal carry holster. Both videos, come down to one thing muscle memory. You won't need to aim once muscle memory has been achieved, IN MOST CASES. The Micro dot on the guy in first videos firearm, is the fastest way to achieve muscle memory. Micro dots are way under rated, I was never that great a shot with a hand gun, until I started shooting with a micro dot. It work both ways, snap-shooting (shooting without aiming) and accuracy.
Step1. Deciding which caliber and style (Revolver/Semi-auto) fits you and your situation best. This is the toughest, because the best test is shooting. Most folks miss step one.

I love the title "Why aiming is useless" - yes I agree. No one should aim. It is useless.... :D :roll: :shock:

Personally I am not even wasting my time on a video with a name like that. And I don't care even if the late great Jeff Cooper said it.

Maybe the title should read, "Why aiming is useless, IN THIS SITUATION!" Call it what you will, its Snap shooting.

This is ONLY TRUE for very close range combat where fast response is going to make the difference.

If you take time to sight stuff in, you get nailed. DONE deal.

Late to the conversation as usual here! :shock:

Have been off line for some time, but I saw this and wanted to say a couple of things. :pop:
1. If you are using a handgun to hit something more than 20-30 feet away, you got the wrong tool. (IMNSHO) :nutz:
2. If you have a semi-auto, spray and pray is always an option (just watch a gang banger), and likely the way most newbies would react. :2gun:
3. Inside 20 feet if you stop to aim I believe you die, again an opinion. shrug
4. Shotguns solve all of the forgoing! :D
