I knew a guy back in the late eighties in The Corps who was a remarkable pistol shot and could hit 2" dots at 25 yards with his personal Gold Cup 1911 all day long. He would often riddle the face of an aggressor on a hostage-in-front-target.
His secret? Natural ability, sure, but as bill stated, hours and hours of practice with consistency in his fundamentals.
