Of course. I'd definitely give it a whirl to see if there's a merit.

What people don't understand or refuse to acknowledge is that we are not all built the same. My canting my elbow this way a bit may improve my gun handling and control, but it doesn't mean that you have the same degree of flexibility, or the technique even work for you.

You are spot on about the gamer vs. Gunsite mentality though.
This is why I advocate getting specific trainings. Want to compete or shoot competition style? Go to a school that teaches you competition shooting.

Want to learn how to fight? Go to a school that teaches you how to fight.

As far as I'm concerned, the 'twains are so different that I don't even bother trying to mix'em up.
