words from someone generally acknowledged to know what he's speaking about:
“Jelly” Bryce, one of the greatest police gunfighters of the first half
of the 20th century, was famous for his point-shooting skills. He killed
many an armed criminal firing that way. Being able to fire and hit
without the sights in a perfect sight picture is, without question, a
useful survival skill. As with so many elements of gunfight survival,
it’s not a question of this or that—it’s a mandate for this and that.
I will now go refresh my reading of No Second-Place Winner and wait for someone to tell me point-shooting is stupid.
