Wait wait wait... did he get jumped again while I was away?Zombie thread! Worth noting that was nitrogenated, a forum member here, that those two hapless carjackers decided to pick on.
Nailed it. Any successful shot to the hips is highly likely to incapacitate for any number of reasons, up to and include possible death via damage to the femoral artery, BUT, is generally more likely to truly incapacitate without killing unless that's your outright goal. Plus, as the hips are a large target, they're easy to hit, and the body ALWAYS follows the hips, so it's an easy (or easier) to track them, and if you are firing quickly or dealing with heavy recoil, you should be able to fire several rounds easily without making any special recoil control or re-aiming efforts without the sights ever leaving the target, even if you are firing fast.Center mass for me; if that fails, go low not high. Heads tend to be small, armored and mobile, all things I don't want in a gunfight. Hips tend to be the center of gravity and things pivot around them (If I'm explaining that correctly.)
That's a Euro sog thing. Afaik its still not commonplace in most training, although fairly effective in slowing someone down the problem there is people can still shoot you when they aren't walkingIt is my understanding (via hearsay, I have no supporting evidence) that some SOG units now favor 5 shots to the hips over the Mozambique drill.
Ahhhhh, that must have been what it was, and makes sense now why I couldn't remember where I got it nor find any supporting documentation. I've made the acquaintance of a number of SOG-types over the years, including a few Euro's.That's a Euro sog thing.
