I re-watched on of Ben's dvd last night, and something occurred to me.. This goes beyond the grip, transitions, trigger control and what have you.. Indexing the gun, and I don't believe he goes into it.. I guess maybe as a part of the draw?.. but it seems more in regards the quick way to get the gun up and ready, but I would think indexing carries further in the run than just the draw, and the path from the holster to in front of your face.
I understand that grip is important.. as I've recently thought I had my own Ah-Ha moment about it.. But even if you have a crappy grip, if you can index the gun consistently (and actually press the trigger straight back) you're going to hit your target..
I mean.. In my head, proper index will allow you to transition faster, it will allow you to pick between focal/focus planes (if I'm using the right term here) allow you to fire more quickly after moving between target positions better, and make reloads more automatic.
So it's speed and consistency of your index that would be a driver for almost all other aspects of the game.
Would it then be in precedence of things to get gooder (for a total noob)
3: Trigger press
Where.. if your index is off.. does it really matter how good or consistent your grip is, then once you have those both down, concentrate on trigger press? Does a killer grip, and index as in a locked in grip, and sights perfectly in front of your face allow of a slightly more messy trigger press??
I have time to ponder this crap while I commute to work...
