    I was thinking, "Jeff Cooper used to teach that", just when you mentioned Cooper. Excellent video thank you very much. Always enjoy your videos.

    Sights are "training wheels" to help you learn what correctly indexing the muzzle at the target looks and feels like. You use them to visually verify that your body did what your brain commanded. Eventually (through practice and feedback of positive results) your brain will trust your body and stop needing to see the sights before you pull the trigger. There comes a time when the training wheels are no longer needed.

    Too many turd buckets still on the always “point shoot” or always “use your sights” short bus. You would think even the simplest of minds would understand you need to be proficient at both proactive and reactive gunfighting. Guess it’s easier to make Tactical Dali Lama memes instead of putting in real work.

    Dare I bring up the names Fairbairn, Sykes, Noel, and Applegate? Some of them were talking and teaching using "point" or "instinctive point" shooting a hundred years ago at the distances Gabe just demonstrated. Admittedly, they were teaching the 'one hand gun'. Importantly, we have to remember that they were teaching one hand shooting for closer range only - so many people forget that Fairbairn and Applegate both taught two handed shooting (and the use of sights) for distances greater than 10 to 15 yards.

    Gabe just did a great job with this video of demonstrating that the skills are there, but forgotten to many in our technology driven world . Great job Gabe!

    That's it exactly. Self defence, defensive shooting, all of it, is a multi-dimensional, multi-faceted realm demanding a variety of skills, ranging from verbal for de-escalation, to empty hand, full contact combatives, impact weapons, knife skills, and shooting skills. And, we're not talking one or two of each, but a variety of skills to me a variety of different defensive needs. Gabe even pointed that out in the video. Distance creates time, It also changes what you need to do and when you need to do it. Close distance, close range gunfighting requires a greater variety of skills.

    Self-defense is a myth. It doesn't exist. There is only attack, and counter-attack.

    True indeed.

    On top of that, I just realized that "self-defense" is a PC term and I need to wash my mouth out for even uttering it.

    Agreed, and that is a negative mentality to which I will never, ever subscribe.
