    Mike Ox Law Enforcement, Defense & Security

    There are a ton of myths floating around about using a front sight focus on a self-defense pistol. One is that you must always use a front sight focus. I agree with this for bullseye shooting, 4H shooting, hunting non-dangerous game, and other specific situations. I also think it’s critical to practice front sight focus during every practice session and at the end of every string of fire (red dots are the possible/probable exception). Let's take a quick look at a few others.
