More than just the "sighs" on a handgun can be used to sight it.
One of the ways I speed shoot my snubnose revolvers is to sight down the left side of the topstrap in right angle that it makes where it meets the top of the cylinder.
I'm not pointing, I'm aiming.
Point shooting, to me, means not even bringing the gun to eye level.
Shotguns are pointed, at eye level. If you are not bringing the gun up and pointing it (as you would a finger), and instead pointing it from waist level, that's "hip shooting".
