Slow is smooth, smooth is fast.

If you want to go fast slow down.

I would have to disagree to a point. Here is a good read on the subject.

You are welcome to disagree. My point is you shoot as fast as you can accurately hit, with practice you can shoot faster while still hitting something.
I see many first timer shooters draw and try to shoot as fast as some of the guys that have been shooting for years. What happens they miss most of the shots and they end up taking longer to clear the steel because it's taking them 4 shots instead of one well place shot.

I have to agree with agalindo. I see a lot of newby's that try to shoot as fast as the older shooter and end up with a lot of misses and missing the steel. When you start out slow is better and smooth goes a long way too. With time and experience speed happens. I shoot worse the faster I try to push. Play your own game within you experience level and as time goes on you will shoot better.

After a recent match, which was only my second USPSA match, my accuracy was usually better than the stage winner. I was just, way, way, WAAAAAAAAY slower. After walking around and seeing my targets scored I realized my groups were tighter than they would need to be. The following week at the range I sent a target down to 10 yards and fired 6 shots at it, increasing the speed each time. I realized that it seemed like I was waiting for too perfect of sight alignment. At least for the closer targets, being off just a bit still put the shot in the alpha area. Instead of waiting for perfect sight alignment with the sights dead center in the alpha area, I started pulling the trigger as the front sight started to drop into the alpha area. Seemed to work for me, though I need a LOT more practice. I realize it's different for the longer shots, but I feel like I will be able to shave considerable time off the closer targets the next time I shoot. It sort of felt like an "aha" lightbulb type moment for me. Of course I'll probably learn that I'm wrong and need to rethink things.

My son and I are both shooting XDM's in 9mm. Current load that seems to be working well is 124gr Montana Gold FMJ's, 4.7gr WSF, CCI Small Pistol Primers, WCC or FC brass, loaded to 1.154"

I don't totally disagree with what he said but smooth is smooth and fast is fast. If you practice both and combine them then smooth is fast. As they say it is easy to teach a fast shooter to be accurate but hard to teach a accurate shooter to be fast. If you never push yourself you will never improve.
