Could Wyatt Earp Could Have Made Faster Hits With This?

There have been several gunfighting quotes about Wyatt Earp going around for the last few months.  If you haven’t seen them, you need to:

“When I say that I learned to take my time in a gunfight, I do not wish to be misunderstood, for the time to be taken was only that split fraction of a second that means the difference between deadly accuracy with a sixgun and a miss. It is hard to make this clear to a man who has never been in a gunfight. Perhaps I can best describe such time taking as going into action with the greatest speed of which a man’s muscles are capable, but mentally unflustered by an urge to hurry or the need for complicated nervous and muscular actions which trick-shooting involves. Mentally deliberate, but muscularly faster than thought, is what I mean.”

-Wyatt Earp

“No wise man ever took a handgun to a gun fight.”

-Wyatt Earp

“Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything.  You need to take your time in a hurry in a gunfight.”

-Wyatt Earp

“The most important lesson I learned was that the winner of a gunplay usually was the one who took his time.  The second was that, if I hoped to live on the frontier, I would shun flashy trick-shooting.  Grandstand play.  as I would poison.  In all my life as a frontier peace officer, I did not know a really proficient gunfighter who had anything but contempt for the gunfanner or the man who literally shot from the hip.”

-Wyatt Earp

“From personal experience and numerous six-gun battles which I witnessed, I can only support the opinion advanced by the men who gave me my most valuable instruction in fast and accurate shooting, which was that the gun-fanner and hip-shooter stood small chance to live against a man who, as old Jack Gallagher always put it, took his time and pulled the trigger once.”

-Wyatt Earp

So, these are all awesome quotes…and I agree with them 100%.

But what if there’s a way to improve on them?  A way that Wyatt could have stayed true to these quotes and still shot better?

There is.

It’s a way to “take your time faster” in a gunfight.

And it’s what you’ll learn in my new Upgraded Shooter training that I’m going to be telling you about in the next couple of days.

I’ll be peeling back the curtain on the “x-factors” that gun fight survivors WISH they would have known before their first gunfight.  The things they weren’t taught in the military, police academies, or any other gun training they had.

This will make any training time more effective AND help your paper punching skills transfer over to life and death situations better.

I’ve got limited seats for this new training and am going to be inviting people to view it in waves.

    Like most people, I try and home train every chance I get. I know I need to practice at least a few min. every day,but some how, that is the hardest few min. of the day I can find. Other then that, practice to be safe and hope you never have to test it, but if you do,it should all be automatic.

    These quotes are from a man who understood that accuracy was number one speed was secondary. The fact that he knew that a level of skill engraved by CONFIDENCE in ability to do underpreasure was paramount to speed made him a victor.This confidence was achieved by repetition until mastery was accomplished!
