In 'ancient' times (late '60s) I taught the Army's 'new' snap shooting technique to the 'cruits. We were told to teach them to sight along the side of the barrel (M16) or slide (1911) to quickly engage a close target. Truth is that some of the newbi shooters actually did better at ranges up to 50 yards with that approach than when they tried traditional aimed fire.
