While I wouldn't go out on a limb, Mr. MLeake, and say I'm a proponent of point shooting, it was something I did now and then, but hardly to the exclusion of other styles or techniques. But there were some things I never did. They included what I'm calling hip shooting, by which I mean shooting with the handgun at more or less waist level (but not necessarily with it at the hip). I expect that shooting with the handgun right out of the holster at the hip or more likely, upper thigh, was something that only came along with the fast draw competitions of the 1950s. But shooting at waist level was certainly something mentioned in old literature.

I've also never done any fast draw with a single-action revolver, even though I had several single-action revolvers (never had a fast draw holster for any of them).
Shoot low, sheriff. They're riding Shetlands!
