I really liked what Shuyum had to say. My freinds and I. Avid Martial artists. Use a pellet gun, unloaded of course. You would be surprised how easy it is to beat the trigger time. It is however no perfect science. Shuyum got just about all the info in there. Remember lasering though. (lasering: pretend the gun has a laser on it that burns anything it crosses.) Now keep this lasering in mind always when practicing your techniques. There is no point wrestling for a gun pointed randomnly at other people or yourself. These techniques are only good for point blank range. But shooting isnt an easy task. Especially when the fine moter skills are inhibited by adrenalline. If one wants to be an all around fighter and not just a martial artist I suggest regular paintball, once a week minimum. Or maybe you should just carry a dummy wallet for such an occasion.
