I was googling that, and came across the wiki page of “modern technique.”
His eye level sighting system overcame and was superior to “point shooting” from the hip.
That’s not the type of point shooting you endorse is it?

But I am lost in this info though.
Is this book still relevant to techniques that have evolved?
Seems like his weapon of choice was a GI 1911 in .45acp, so using one of those would make this book highly relevant.

I'm not at all sure his eye level sighting system was superior to point shooting. As examples I give you Ed McGivern and Bill Jordan, author of No Second Place Winner and a highly experienced gunfighter.

Are you calling Bill Jorden and Mc Givern highly experienced gunfighters?

As I said in my post Bill Jordan, author of No Second Place Winner and a highly experienced gunfighter. McGivern was an exhibition shooter who shot in a way very similar to Jordans.

Negative in Bill Jordan's time as a boarder patrol agent he only shot 1 guy. That 1 guy was another boarder patrol agent after a negligent discharge of his weapon. No where in his book does he say he was ever in a gun fight on the border. And the way someone shoots does not make them a gun fighter. Where do you come up with this Sh!t.

Got a cite to back up that claim, or is it just more or your drivel? He did 30 years in the Border Patrol and I'm willing to believe it.

You got a cite to say he did shoot someone. I read the book and no where in that book does he ever say he shot anyone. The broader patrol agent (retired) I talked to a long time ago, some how Bill came up, told me the only person he shot was another boarder patrol agent. Go read the book.again and show me Im wrong.
