    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Scanner Match - Due 05/13/06

    New Course.

    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.

    50 Rounds

    @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 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.

    The point is that the other hand is occupied, but that is my preferred way and reason, yes.

    ...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.

    Heh.

    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.

    I read a book in which someone did this and it worked. I had no idea it was a genuine tactic.

    Cool.
