Interesting article about “point” vs. “aimed” (using the sights) handgun shooting.
One of the things Tarani didn’t talk about is that point shooting offers people with totally shit eyesight (like me) the chance to hit the target without taking half an hour to align fuzzy sights with an indistinct target. This is why my recent handgun acquisitions have tended towards guns with rudimentary or no rear sights, e.g. the S&W Mod 65:
…and my backup Mod 637 has never had a rear sight:
Note that both are essentially short-range weapons: the Mod 65 has bedside duty for those little indoor reindeer games, and the Mod 637 is for those occasions where the intended target is in halitosis range.
Neither my 1911 nor High Power have an adjustable rear sight:
…which means that for all intents and purposes, my target shooting days are over.
Which is also why nowadays my practice with the above are all point-shooting drills resulting in targets that look messy, like this:
…which, I would respectfully suggest, should be adequate for the job at hand.
