Come and Join Michael Janich for this unique event.

Point shooting is a controversial, misunderstood, and much maligned aspect of combative handgun training. When properly understood and applied, however, it is also a combat-proven, lifesaving skill that works in situations where conventional sighted fire is impractical or impossible.

In this extraordinary course, FFT lead instructor Will Farrugia and point shooting authority Michael Janich join forces to cut through the myths and misinformation to present point shooting with unprecedented logic and clarity. Janich was personally trained by the late close-combat legend Col. Rex Applegate and co-authored the book Bullseyes Don’t Shoot Back with him. He also worked extensively with the late NYPD gunfighting legend Jim Cirillo.

In this course, he traces the historical evolution of modern point shooting, from its World War I origins in the British military to W.E Fairbairn and E.A. Sykes in Shanghai and through Col. Applegate’s wartime and post-war teachings. He also incorporates the “alternative sighting methods” taught by Cirillo and puts them into perspective with his own approach to contact-distance shooting.

Building on this foundation, Will Farrugia will present elements of FFT’s proven modern point shooting curriculum, which focuses on achieving quick, accurate hits on moving and static targets at realistic gun-fighting ranges using both two and one-handed shooting techniques. This course will include both classroom and live-fire range training.
