Point shooters say that most people will not see their handgun sights under stress so the best way to train is to point shoot because why bother training to use your sights?
The sighted fire guys say that you should always use your sights because accuracy is everything. And that is what the sights are there for and you are responsible for every round you fire. Point shooting, is also known as target- or threat-focused shooting, intuitive shooting or instinctive shooting, is a practical shooting method where the shooter points a ranged weapon at a target without relying on the use of sights to aim, the emphasis is more on fast draw and trying to score preemptive hits first rather than for accuracy. In close quarters combat where life-threatening situations often arise suddenly leaving little reaction time for precise aiming, it is difficult to apply proper marksmanship techniques without risking oneself to be hit and thus suffer injury or get killed, which is why point shooting advocates a less sighting-oriented style of shooting prioritizing on achieving a tactical advantage through quick fire superiority and suppression. You will be able to point shoot if you practice sighted fire, but not the other way around.
As you might imagine, the practice with sighted fire builds a consistent physical index with your body that happens subconsciously. In fact, if you’ve practice enough you can usually focus hard on the target you want to shoot, close your eyes, draw the gun and when you open them, you will be looking at your sights and gun aimed in at the last place you were visually focusing on. So, who is right? If You Cannot See Your Sights Under Stress Why Practice Using Them? You can learn to see your sights under stress. This has been proven time and time again. The key is to simply practice and practice under stress. The correct way to practice is to first look to the target and focus where you want to shoot the target making the target as small as possible allowing for smaller target, smaller miss, and then draw the gun and with enough reps the sights just “appear” where you are focusing with your eyes.
