The importance of practicing one-handed shooting

Postby Ohio9 » Thu Nov 30, 2017 1:28 pm

Off-duty cop in Brazil kills two armed robbers, while holding his infant son in one arm. This really shows why practicing one-handed shooting is a good idea.

I also like how the cop doesn't get tunnel vision. You can see him constantly scanning the area for new threats.

My off hand is simply terrible and so is my point shooting. I always try to position myself to blade with my left shoulder forward to take any hits on my off-side and preserve my strong side accuracy. But that's just me.
