FfNJGTFO, here's a few pics of myself and students in a FoF I put on for a weekend in Tennessee around 07-08.
The above started at that distance, he drew first, I had to respond. I simultaneously used my left arm to foul his gun coming onto my body, drew and shot him in the neck. I shot him in the neck because I was "in the moment" and that's the shot I'd take in the same situation on some turd trying to shoot me.
In this one, we started at 6 feet apart, he drew first and I had to respond. Look closely at the ground near my left foot, you'll see his firearm on the ground. He had me beat, I'm just drawing the gun. I'd lose but for the H2h skills which let me use my left hand once again [ while drawing ] to slap the gun out of his hand as it came up to point in on me. He threw his hands up in a WTF moment of frustration. I'll shoot with prejudice on the streets like I shot him and never give it a second thought.
In this one we started 5 yrds away, he draws first once again. He brought his gun up on my person and fired. My turning sideways afforded me his missing behind me [ barely ] while I put one into him before he could get a second shot off. You see he's standing still using 3/4 hip, I'm moving while shooting 3/4 hip but using my nose index not his stand and deliver. Now, I should mention that was an oh shiit moment at the time the picture was taken for me. But that movement made him miss, while I didn't while on the move.
In this one I'm demonstrating for the students how to run flat out and make hits on BG's. There's NO front sight press shooter that will ever make hits like this. Threat focused, the gun doesn't need to be up in my face, nor do I have to square to the threat, I can move and shoot.
Coming to a stop, out of threats that need shooting LOL
Hopefully these snap shots provide a few more answers to why TFP before FoF. You wouldn't be able to use these skills against one who can. Staying alive with a gun is a thinking mans game. The more skills you possess [ like H2h ] that can be incorporated at appropriate times on the fly [ thinking on the fly ] the better ones chances of surviving a meat grinder.
I've bled in Fof, that student I shot in the neck at point blank is a lesson he'll never forget. I explained why he lost to him, he understood immediately why he lost,
HE WAS GUNCENTRIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! let me draw and fire while he was trying to overcome my force of keeping that muzzle off my torso. He just HAD to use that gun, and it cost him big time. LOL
