Groups or patterns?

    When shooting at the range we all tend to shoot for tight groups.
    In a training I had a few years ago, we were taught NOT to shoot an agressor using a tight pattern.

    The thinking is that if you hit em twice in the same place your not going to make him bleed out any faster. Also, his nerve's in that area are already maxed out so hit him somwhere else and do some more damage.

    It makes sense to me.

    Just something else to consider if you ever need to shoot in a real life situation.

    good to hear

    good to hear the my lack of practice is actually better for stopping an aggressor, as at this point i'm not grouping very well...NEED MORE RANGE TIME!....maybe tomorrow....i have the day recover from midnight showing of Episode III....this will be my last midnight showing of anything.....tradition for my friend and I.....but no more I say!...getting too old for that crap...

    maybe I'll hit the range tomorrow afternoon....sounds like a good plan to me....

  3. Yup, I've heard that same advice. In fact, if you buy the two-disc DVD special edition of the "THE ROCK" on the bonus features they have a great instructional course in basic handgun use taught by some former Navy Seals.

    In the bonus feature they talk about spreading your shots apart to inflict more shock and shut down the tango's systems faster. Great little clip, by no means a full instructional video, but interesting. Check it out if you ever get a chance.

    makes perfect sense. however, from a logical perspective, if you practice shooting tight groups and can develop the accuracy to consistently shoot those groups, chances are when you need to put rounds into an aggressor, you can spread them out how you like and be confident the shots will be goin where you intend.

    or in an angreline dmp your groups will open up a LOT and if your used to shooting tight groups you'll actually still be on your target insted of all over the place.

    Most of us will never be in a real shooting situation. If it ever does happen you should probably worry about hitting the first time. If you dont hit the first time you can't hit a second time.
