AIM and hit SLOWLY. so why bother to point shoot SLOWLY? The ONLY reason to point shoot is when it's a FASTER way to hit than is aimed fire. Point shooting is only faster, RELIABLY so, than aimed fire at very close ranges. However, 90+% of justified Civilian defensive shooting falls within those very close ranges. So point shooting skill, at VERY high speeds, is very, VERY important. Just dont be stupid about how far away it's usable, and still FASTER than aimed fire, for 5 out of 5 tries/hits, on the 10" chest circle, under realistic starting conditions.

I see the point to slow point-shooting, just like any slow shooting, as a tool to develop hand-eye coordination for that skill.

I reality, if point shooting is needed, a couple quick bangs while retreating should give enough room to go to into fully extended aimed fire of choice. Either that, or go to point blank where you can't miss.

cheers

You are right John. There is no point to slow point shooting. The whole point of point shooting is to get hits as fast as you can.
