How To Get A Fast, Automatic And Correct Flash Sight Picture.





GRAB GUN - POINT FINGER - PULL TRIGGER.

GRAB your gun firmly - with your index finger along the side - POINT your index finger at the target - and PULL the trigger with your middle finger.

PS grip

That is P&S, or AIMED Point Shooting in a nutshell.

P&S can be learned with little or no training, and maintained with minimal practice. And it can be used in good light or bad, when moving, against moving targets, and even against small fast moving aerials. Also, with P&S, you get automatic and correct sight alignment, and automatic and correct sight placement, both of which are critical to accuracy.

WHY USE IT?

Because, if you are going to be shot or killed, there is an 80% chance that it will happen at less than 20 feet. So it makes sense to know how to aim and shoot: simply, fast, and accurately at close quarters.

P&S fills that bill. Click here for the rest of this article

Note: You will find that some of the articles contain the same basic info about P&S. An attempt has been made to keep that to a minimum. But, visitors do not have to read the site pages in order. They can selectively access a page via a search engine, or by clicking on a link of their choice. So what may be repetitive information to one, may not be repetitive to another.

Video - Shooting ONE HANDED.

Note that the pointing and shooting are done as one action. That is, I point at the target and as soon as my senses say that I am where I am pointing, I pull the trigger. Here's what the US Army says about that in its combat Pistol Manual of 2003: "When a soldier points, he instinctively points at the feature on the object on which his eyes are focused. An impulse from the brain causes the arm and hand to stop when the finger reaches the proper position."

You are welcome to add a P&S Aiming Aid to your personal gun/s at your own risk and expense. And ditto for Police Agencies who wish to add them to Agency guns. A P&S aiming aid makes correct index finger placement along the side of the gun automatic and mechanical, and keeps the index finger away from the slide.

For the past 22 years, Police Officers have been shot and killed at the rate of one every seven days, and thousands are wounded each year. And the FBI, Agencies, trainers, and gun makers don't seem to care. Most still train Police Officers to use Sight Shooting, even though it is not used in most all Close Quarters life threat situations where there is the greatest chance of Officers being shot and/or killed.

I had to make a FOIA request to the FBI to obtain the following document. My initial request was denied, so I had to appeal that, and so on and so forth. I jumped through those hoops, as I believe that the info in it is of value to the millions of law abiding folks who have a handgun for self defense. It also may help some realize that a gun is not a magical wand that will ward off evil and assure their safety and security.
