    festus, no I am one who didn't miss the point. I was just trying to be a little funny. I have not tried it BUT I do not see any reason not to. You May be in a situation/s where the angle has you shoot like that (as previously mentioned in this thread). I'm going to stick with what I was taught, BUT it wouldn't be a bad idea to practice some shot's like that. Maybe even try it with my other hand.
    (All the above are MY opinions/suggestions ONLY....AND, I like to bust ball's, it's called having a sense of humor. In other words, no intent to offend anyone, so get over it)

    You're right, especially with the homeboy night sights installed!

    Seriously though, do you actually believe that this technique would work well from long range? I could possibly see it working at point blank range, but not from a distance. Do you plan to practice shooting this way at the range?

    If you practice like everything else, I do not see any reason why not.
    Range, what are you kidding? Check out where I shoot in......"NH Forum / backyard range". I am going to try it though.

    I suppose I'm not going to knock something I've never tried. Do you think you can post pictures of your target on this forum? I'd like to see it.

    I went with "now that's shootin" mostly because I thought it was funny. I think I may have tried it for a laugh when I bought my first handgun as a spry 21 year old, but that was it for me.

    tattedupboy, if you go to the New Hampshire thread and look at "back yard shooting" you will see my set up.........which is not finished yet, but it is still operational. Hope to have finished this fall, if not, then by this Spring. Need the $ to finish the surrounding area.

    No, I wouldn't even think of it. This type of thing is something that I am trying to avoid. Unfortunately, it's what the kids are used to seeing. We're teaching my nephew about firearm safety and all he brings up is the shooting with handgun sideways. Until he shows us that he has gotten that out of his system, there will be no shooting for him.

  11. I have. When I got my new XDm I shot it one handed, two handed, weak hand , strong hand , gangsta, limp wristed, trying to see what may create a stove pipe or other feeding jam. Tried shooting without engaging the grip safety and / or the trigger safety.
