It looks to me like you blew Billy Mays' face off as he was attempting to demo his Mighty Putty to a terrified woman. Either that, or the woman is screaming: "Don't shoot, I'm about to get some Mighty Putty! I haven't had Mighty Putty in years!!!"

While I like "instinctive shooting" training in general and think it's great for practical handgun stuff, I'm not a fan of the system they're showing there (point with index finger and pull trigger with middle finger). That looks really awkward and very non-standard. For fast, practical shots at close ranges (which is what they're going for), it's really not hard to learn to instinctively point the gun while holding it properly and using the correct finger on the trigger.

On the other hand for anything that gives you a tiny slice more time to aim: you shouldn't have your finger on the trigger until you're on the target anyways (a very cardinal safety rule). Where you keep your finger until that time is straight down the side of the gun anyways, which does allow for "pointing" to help your initial aim. Then you fine tune with the sights while you move your finger to the trigger.

A laser sight (which I'm not a fan of in practice for carrying) is a great training tool for training instinctive aiming by the way. You can practice all day with an unloaded gun dry-firing, and see exactly how the real aiming point lines up with your intent.

What do you guys suggest for a nice reliable 9mm/.40/.45 handgun for weekend target shooting? I'm willing to spend a little more money for quality so Walmart brands are scratched off the list.

Springfield XD45
I've got the long barrel, but you can get them in shorter. No problems with it so far, and it carries Springfields excellent lifetime warranty.

About to go get a S&W 442 or something similar for pocket carry.

I am shooting the Newer H&K Tactical USP .45ACP (the one put up to replace the US military sidearm last year) it will set you back about a $1000.00 but it is freaking nuts perfect! On a slightly lower budget the Sig Sauer P220 .45acp is amazing as well. That will set you back about $700-800...

go to a gun show!!! Hold the guns find what fits for you then do research on the ones you liked from the show...

Good Luck!

I'm not aware of the "newer" H&K USP's but the USP's are exactly the one I had mind set on. I love the way it looks but since most of my friends own American brands, I haven't got much personal feedbacks regarding the USP's.

the USPs are insanely well built and the mechanics are amazing. I have shot several brands and by far this is one of the best guns on the market!!! I love my 1911 customs but for compactness and accuracy The H&K will rock any of its competitor's worlds! Very little recoil for a .45 and follow up shots are within 1 moa @ 25yrds

Glock. I hate them but I cant argue with the reliability and the price so I got myself a 19 (9mm) for Christmas and have been carrying it since. If a Glock doesnt do it for you, Id suggest an xD or M&P otherwise.
