    Staccato at 30 feet... it shot pretty decent, but didn’t love the gun.

    Threat focused (not using sights), pistol shot from 3/4 hip position one handed.
    15 rounds at seven yards, shot as fast as I can pull the trigger.

    Good gravy, there are some top-notch shooters here! I was going to post some of my 9mm AR targets at 15-20 yards, but some of y’all are shooting handguns offhand at 25 yards better than I shoot a long-gun at a shorter distance haha! :)

    Here is a 7-yard target of mine, shot with a S&W 625 Mountain Gun in .45 ACP. 230-gr. FMJ in 2- and 3-shot strings, all from concealment / leather (Barranti Summer Classic IWB and Jeffrey Custom moon pouches).

    I have NO idea who put that errant round to the right on my target. (Yeah, right!) ;)

    Nice shooting! But he shot Lincoln in the head... Oddly appropriate, somehow....

    Easily shown/demonstrated, but harder to describe.

    So, half hip is very similar to a low retention position, except the elbow is against the side for support and consistency. The other difference is that the pistol is held centerline of the body, rather than aligned with the right side (for right handed people).

    The three quarter hip position is about half way between the half hip and point shoulder positions, with the forearm held level, and the pistol extended more forward than at the half hip position. It looks very much like the “gunfighter” positions we’d see on the TV westerns back in the 50’s-60’s.

    The point shoulder position is with the arm extended fully forward and level, at shoulder height.

    The pistol is below the shooter’s line of sight in all three positions, so the sights can’t be used, and the pistol isn’t looked at by the shooter; it’s ”threat focused” shooting.

    Once the shooter has learned the three positions; a forth skill is taught, the “zipper.”

    The zipper is drawing the pistol and firing a shot from the 1/2 hip position, then extending the pistol forward and up into the 3/4 hip position where two shots are fired, then extending the pistol up and out into the point shoulder position, where a fourth shot is fired.

    The zipper is performed all in one smooth movement; not four separate ones (the draw is the first) as the shooter fires a shot to the abdomen from 1/2 hip, two COM shots from 3/4 hip, and a head shot from point shoulder. The positions are moved through smoothly and naturally as the arm is extended forward, moving the pistol forward and upward all in one continuous motion.

    I found a node last night, but had a few primer issues. Loaded up .1 grain increments on either side, and did one seating change at the mid load. That 4th target may or may not have been me with the one out of the group.... :grin: 160 yards.

    300 Blackout, Hornady 300 Whisper cases. Weight sorted the cases and the bullets.

    KIMG4021.JPG KIMG4019.JPG I already posted the Freedom Eagle target elsewhere, but I'm proud of it so I'll do it again. These were done with an HK, not a 1911, as my 1911 collection hasn't arrived yet.
