At the risk of starting a controversy I offer the following link for informational use.

I do not pretend to say this is the only or best way to shoot defensively but it does have some practical advantages.

OK, I've played with this one in the past.

This is plain stupid as well as awkward and unnatural (unlike what the website states). Why waste your strongest grip finger (your middle finger) in this way?

The "wrist lock" grip just adds to the problems with this as it does nothing to aid in aiming the weapon or trigger control, unlike the classic two thumbs forward grip.

Try a tactical mag change with his grip - what a mess - just ejecting the mag is about as unstable as you can get with only your two weakest fingers holding the gun. Try a fast draw from your pocket with an LCP with this grip - that's just a total disaster.

Your brain can easily deal with the concept of "the gun is my finger", eh? In the end, if you're too close for that good old fashioned front sight aimed shot, your "intuitive" close in shot will work just fine, IMHO.

Just curious, have you tried this method yourself?

Actually yes I have.......in a rapid fire drill for ccw qualification (strong hand) I can keep all the rounds on the paper (8x11 typing paper) at 7 yards. Is this as good as sighted slow fire two handed target shooting.......no; but will do for self defense I think.

well I admit :-[ I use my normal trigger finger.... :'( :'(

not a purist in that sense.............. just keep both eyes open and focus on the target

I did this at 5 yards without using the sights...


The sights are as worthless as my 5 shot snubby. Not gonna waste my time bringing it up to my eye level. As soon as it's drawn, it will be firing.

Not sure about that website tho. They also talk about making dinner lol!

Very nice ;D ;D ;D

I would think you will be very effective in a self defense situation with grouping like that. :) :)

There are many schools of thought and back in the day when I first started pistol shooting my mentor was an Uncle who was a police officer and range officer for a large city PD............he shot on several teams and did very well at Camp Perry and other venues with lots of trophies and medals..........so that's where I started and became fairly proficient at pistol shooting but never good enough to shoot competitively............as I have aged and don't get to the range as often as I should my skill level isn't the same and for very close range self defense shooting I have tried various point and shoot techniques with some success; at least enough to have confidence at some degree of accuracy at very close range............for another mans view on this topic please read the following
