As fast as I can hit what? A target the size of a quarter? A cigarette pack? A magazine cover?
I may be paraphrasing here, but I believe Jeff Cooper said something like "shot placement is key."
So now I am at two contradictory goals.
Lets say a good shooter can go faster. Accuracy suffers, naturally, and instead of his bullet holes on the practice target getting covered by a 3x5 card, they are covered by a 8.5x11 piece of paper. But is that hitting? Yes, if you consider merely center mass a hit, but that wasn't the 'impression' I got from reading people like Cooper.
Shoot as fast as you can hit. Shoot faster, then, if you are always grouping inside a 3x5 card and a notebook paper size target is good enough for a hit, then. I guess. I'm sorta asking here. There is always so fast that you shoot the ceiling, or your foot.... If you shoot your foot because you've increased the speed to ludicrous-reckless then you've sped up too much... But, short of that, that's how I reconcile the contradictions. If a magazine-cover sized target is unacceptable in a given situation then you need to shoot slower, naturally. Like when a bad guy has taken cover and only offers you half a face and an arm to shoot as he tries to kill you himself.
But it's a bit academic for me. At my slowest, my standard is magazine cover size bullet spread. At my fastest it's about the same. I'm not a sub 2 second shooter, but I can draw and fire inside the 2s, even rusty. I'd still like to improve my accuracy so I COULD hit a quarter when I wanted to and had time. Or at least that 3x5 card for a whole magazine. I'd probably not hit that covered bad guy.
Again, it's a bit academic at the range. You can't draw from the holster at my range, and many other ranges have a problem with that sort of thing too. I have no private range, either. So mostly dryfire work when I want to work from drawing from a holster.
"You never select a shotgun as your primary anti-zombie firearm. It's great for onesy twosey, but zombies travel in hordes. The reload time is onerous, and the ammo, while effective, is heavy and bulky and short ranged."
