    Always shoot for center of mass, it is the best bet to hit the target, my reply to those who say what about shooting in the leg? Yes, shoot for the leg and take out the Femoral artery, one of the fastest ways to bleed out.

    I'm with ya davidcalderone, . . . center mass is target # 1, . . .

    But ya know, . . . I've given some thought to a secondary target as of late, . . . and while I used to favor "2 to the body and 1 to the head", . . . I've maybe changed my thinking to "2 to the body, . . . and one to the pelvic region".

    When you measure the overall area of the head that will take him out of the fight with a solid hit, . . . and then measure the pelvic area, . . . the pelvic area is about twice as large, . . . and any solid bone hit there, . . . dude is on the ground. Plus both femoral arteries are there, . . . as well as "other selective targets" that would definitely double the perp over in pain.

    Jury is still out as I have not done the range time on this to see how it "might" work out, . . . but I'm leaning that way right now in my thinking.

    Anybody else have any thoughts on that one??

    May God bless,

    Shooting for the pelvic area sounds like a good idea, I think it is actually taught by some self defense instructors.

    Especially, if you are at near contact distance, might not have a chance to bring to eye level for a good sighting shot. If close, once the muzzle crosses that area, let 'em have it.

    Shoot to wound? In the early 1980s the terminology used for Coast Guard Boarding Members was "Shoot to Kill". In the mid-1980's we were taught to shoot center body mass and shoot to stop the threat - as others have said "Shoot to stop the threat." That usually meant center body mass; later reference was made for groin shots - as said - you hit or even nick the femoral artery unless you apply a tourniquet right effing "now" you will have probably stopped the threat like now!
