Thanks Matthew, for sharing your knowledge.

You are one of the true authorities here and everyone can benefit from your expertise.
First off.....'she' is a weapon, not a girlfriend;
a genderless, inanimate mechanism designed to mete out mayhem in life threatening situations.

Thanks for the kind words.
I have gotten quite a few requests for my outline, so it is nice to see some interest in the subject.

One of my big concerns about a confrontation is the time it takes to aim.

I plan on practicing the point and shoot at my local range this spring and appreciate the info.

I tried it and found with a 1911 I cannot keep the grip safety compressed using the middle finger as a shooting finger. Besides, why can't one just point with their trigger finger as it's extended along the slide in it's proper position, then place it on the trigger to fire?

I am providing information on WW2Applegate/Fairbairn/Sykes point shooting.
This has nothing to do with the P&S system provided by OK JOE.
I do not recommend pulling the trigger with the middle finger.
Please use the normal trigger finger when using my outline as a base.
