For years you have been told to “focus on the front sight.” Would you believe me if I told you that you can score excellent, combat-effective hits without looking at your sights at all?

Using a natural, neutral shooting stance, punching your arms straight out and getting your head down behind the gun as you focus on your target will put your shots on target without using the sights at all. Modern handguns are designed to point naturally and accurately. You can use this ability to keep your rounds on target at typical combat distances, from 3 to 15 feet.

A good grip and a good trigger press will keep you on target, but the key element is that natural, neutral shooting stance, pushing both arms out in front of you and getting your head behind the gun as you focus on your target.

Speed Wins!

Without taking time to find the front sight, you can speed up the rate at which you can get your first shot on target accurately. Remember, it is not the first shot that wins the gunfight; it is the first accurate shot.
