Everything you needed to know about shooting the 1911.
He sure can. Watching that video makes me wonder which of our present "must-do" techniques are going to be considered out of style in a few years. When you come down to it, there are only a few ways to physically hold a handgun and position your body, so maybe the mental aspects (such as focusing on that front sight), which don't seem to vary over the years, are more important.I'm not moving to the cup and saucer anytime soon, but I will say whoever he is, the Captain can shoot . . . .
Some folks were ahead of their time.Military handgun training was pretty much the same as in the video until the 1911 was phased out in the 1980s. Handgun training in both police and military units started to change with the convergence of ideas from spec ops units like the SAS (which was THE spec ops unit after the 1980 Iranian embassy operation) and similar elite police units, like LAPD SWAT.
