Sighted vs. Unsighted Fire (Podcast – Season 2, Ballistic Radio Episode 81 – September 28th, 2014)

“…If you default under duress to your level of training, and your level of training sucks, it’s natural to focus on your target instead of your sights. But the entire idea that you can instinctively shoot is just ridiculous.” – Lt. Chuck Haggard


Lt. Chuck Haggard of the Topeka, Kansas Police Department joins us once again to give his insight and opinion on the topic of sighted vs. unsighted fire during a gunfight. Lt. Haggard touches on such things as the ineffectiveness of handgun rounds,  the influence of media and culture on shooting tactics, and the unreliability of a post-gunfight memory.  We’re also reminded, once again, about the absolute importance of dry fire practice and proper trigger control.
