Rob Pincus shows how to find the middle ground between firing a defensive firearm for speed and firing for precision. There is a strong correlation between your belief that you can hit a target at quick speed and your ability to actually do so. You should learn this correlation, as it is important to practice your ability to shoot quickly – while not rushing the shot – and accurately enough to be lethal without focusing on too small of a region. This video presents a couple of exercises that you can use to practice finding this balance of speed and precision.

    Excellent training information. Under stress you must slow down. After many years of "target practice" training and starting "self protection" training, at 5 or 6 feet I could draw, fire six shots as fast as I could under a time limit and stress and not hit the target or even the back board of the target stand. Even now I have to force myself to slow down. That's not something you want to realize during an actual life and death encounter. Those misses are gong to strike someplace and you are legally responsible for each round you fire. IMO, speed and precision is the most important aspect of your training needs.
