Using The Sights vs. Instinctive (Point) Shooting: Training Police Officers to Survive Gunfights

I have been doing a lot of research and study during the last several years on the subject of sighted fire vs. instinctive shooting. The information out there is very interesting to say the least.

In the coming weeks, I will release a series of articles covering some of the aspects of shooting and visual acuity under high stress situations. I don’t have all the answers, but I hope that the information I will share will be of some benefit to you in your training.

If anyone has specific research information they want to point me towards, or if you have been in a shooting and want to share your experience with me, please contact me.  All information you share is kept confidential, and your name/department would not be used without your express consent.
