Scanner Match - Due 05/13/06
Take your standard printer paper and fold it in half so it's more like 8x5.5. This is your target. Put it on a bigger target to account for misses.
@21 Feet - 8 Rounds with your strong hand
@21 Feet - 8 rounds with your weak hand
@21 Feet - 4 Rounds with your stong hand, 4 rounds with your weak hand (same mag; don't reload; don't put the gun down)
- Repeat 1x
@35 Feet 4 rounds strong hand, 4 rounds weak hand (as above)
- Repeat 1x
@50 feet 10 rounds, 2 hands.

I gotta know, why would you practice shooting with one hand? I can see how it would be sporting, but is there a tactical application, or is this basic pistol archery?

Flashlight or shield in the other.
One hand, arm, or shoulder is fuqqed up.

Flashlight held out to the side to give the BGs a bad point of aim? I remember learning something like that once.

...having to open a door with one hand.
Flashlight held out to the side to give the BGs a bad point of aim?
...Speaking through a P.A. and holding one's pistol...
As one can probably see and surmise, I would prefer not to shoot the old hostage-taker-with-his-arm-around-a-hostage's-neck shot with my weak hand.

1. One hand injured. Weak-side-only is particularly big here, but if you really mean it, you practice one-handed reloading, too.
If you're the kind of guy who has to watch a violent movie to get the idea, see Way of the Gun.
2. Holding or holding back someone else--I go many places with two small children, not that I'm allowed to carry here anyway.
3. Applying pressure to a wound, either on you or someone else.
4. The aforementioned flashlight. As you mention, someone once decided that if you hold a flashlight against your jaw, as the FBI used to advocate, a bad guy who shoots at the light will probably get you. The proposed solution was to hold the light at arms' length. I've never made it work.
