Color of Law,
If we look at LE shooting stats you will see that nationally the hit ratio of LE shootings is around 19%, at 12 feet and closer you will see it around 32%-38%. But that is an average and not an accurate reflection of what happens. Incidents like the one in Cleveland where well over 100 shots were fired destroy the average.
Though look at an agency like Columbus PD. They have a solid training program, both in fundamentals of marksmanship and tactics. They tend to confront people at further distances because of their tactics and their officer involved shootings have more rounds hitting the target because of their training program. Training is an important part of your success is my point.
I am assuming you are being facetious about the "taking 5 seconds to align the sights" comment. Most people who attend just my 8 hour handgun class will fire 5 rounds in a 7 inch target at 15 feet in 4 seconds or less as a beginner. The thing is, I don't teach point shooting. Great shooters whether they are combative shooters or competition shooters don't practice point shooting. We teach proper sighted shooting. Point shooting in the sense of not using the sights is a disaster waiting to happen. Over the years I have shot really fast and hit what I was shooting at, I can tell you that I didn't always see my sights but the gun is up in front of my face and I am pretty sure my eyes and brain are processing some semblance of the sights. The flip side is when I miss, most of the time it is because I am staring at the target and looking over the sights.
Live fire shooting is over rated. You can get away with live fire on a 1-2 times a year basis but you need to dry practice on a regular basis. The argument that the average person is too lazy or too busy to do it is a cop out.
No I'm not being facetious. Time yourself in the video.
A cop out? Maybe, but 99.44% of people who carry will never see your video and if they did they don't care what you think.
I said your video is very informative. However, even the small number that participate on gun forums don't spend alot of time discussing proper shooting practices.
And I know a number of cops that only shoot for qualification. If everyone would meet your criteria there would be no SWAT teems.
I'm just say'n.....
