        NTA but I think one-handed shooting should at least be practiced before you give up on it. Personally I've found that I can shoot as well one-handed as I can two-handed, good groups for both using the same handgun (steel frame 9mm doublestack, DA/SA).
        I'm still not at all sure what the one-handed stance is. It's where you're basically holding your arm out to your side and turning your head that way to aim (pistol is of course held upright properly because I'm white). I keep seeing people call it CAR, Weaver, or Bladed and every time I look these up I get two-handed shooting stances.
        Overall I'd say to use what works for you, both in your choice of weapon and your choice of using it, but I do think it's worth some practice to see how shooting one-handed is. Never know, maybe you'll find yourself with a broken or otherwise disabled arm one day and the need to fend off an attacker or two. Unlikely, but may as well train for something that will never happen than be caught needing that training when it does happen. It's why people build bunkers in their backyards in rural Kansas, put fire exits in buildings that have sprinkler systems, and read the kama-sutra when they're virgins in their mid-30s.

              I'm not really sure where you got the idea that I don't have a rifle, but let's assume that for one reason or another the rifle is fucked up and there's close combatants (which is basically the entire reason for having a handgun anyways). Surely the idea of still having some sort of weapon in a worst case scenario isn't lost on you.

              This. I found that modified weaver with curled thumbs and even CAR stance are much less tiring.

              [...]
              The buttheads in my country banned bulletproof vest for civilians because of baseless bullshit reasons. Still, the IPSC clowns use isosceles stance with fully extended arms, because fixed cardboards and steel plates don't shoot back. Also, most IPSC shooters are too burly for a bladed stance as they are either too burly, or too fat or a combination of both.
              Isosceles might be more stable for static target shooting, but for self defense scenarios is useless.

              >The buttheads in my country banned bulletproof vest for civilians because of baseless bullshit reasons.
              My deepest condolences. One of my favorite things to do is dick around with my armor at home.
              >static target shooting
              Huh, maybe that's also why it caught on. I was assuming that the plates thing was for military/LEO usage and it just spreads down to civilian thinking, the train of thought that goes:
              >"well this guy's job was/is shooting, surely he knows more about shooting than me. I should do whatever he says to do about it"
              Without taking into account that there are on-the-job influences that might cause one to do certain things. Like a sideways pistol stance making your front plate useless because now your unarmored side is facing the attackers, meaning that if you were to be shot your plate wouldn't catch it and you'd die. Prior to that, because the men didn't have armor, then it didn't matter if your side was facing enemy fire. At least, that's what I figured the change in reasoning was.

                I can buy a plate carrier, but not the plates unless I'm a LEO, or work for a private security company or for Brinks or other company that transports valuables (eg: money) in armored trucks. Armor plates also must be registered.

                It's shite, but it could be worse.

            That makes no sense. Grip is only mildly related to stance, you can do that grip and then chapman/weaver and reduce presented profile fine if you want. Although personally I'd prefer to just take cover, and if it's a mugging to something point and shoot is more likely then any sort of proper stance and sight picture stuff unless I'm protecting a family member vs myself.

        bladed stance is the most accurate, that's why olympic pistol shooters stand like that too. However, if you need to be able to move around and see more than just the target you can't stand still with a bladed stance.

            Its easier to do faster follow up shots with 2 hands. Its not for accuracy. 1 hand is better for accuracy when accuracy is the sole focus. If youve gotta put 7 rounds in a fist size group at 10m in 30 seconds than yea 2 hands is better for that. You can argue thats all you need and be right.

    this is stupid, thumb is going to block the slide from cycling properly

    • 2 months ago

      I do thumbs on the frame lip pressing down, if there is one which there typically is on polymer guns. It doesn't mess with the cycling or hurt your fingers. Done classes with hundreds maybe a thousand rounds per day and never had an issue other than the slide not locking to the rear if I wasn't mindful of my rear thumb pressing the slide release. I was the 4th best shooter out of like 56 people without much experience before those classes. It really helps to mitigate recoil and my shots aren't as accurate without it. I wasnt really taught that, it just feels natural. Glocks have those fat lips that stick out the sides and it just feels like that's where your thumbs should rest.

        And no it doesn't hurt with a gen 5 either and those things have the most aggressive front slide serrations of any handgun I've handled, so I doubt any gun would hurt you shooting it like that.

    It makes sense. You wanna make as much contact with the pistol with both hands to keep it stable. This is the most ideal way to shoot a pistol. The less ideal is one handed, and that's with extreme urgency only.

        As somebody who shoots with high thumbs you’re not going to get bit by the slide. Especially on a Glock. You are however at much greater risk of engaging slide release and not having slide lock when you fire your last round.

    It’s simple really. Torque is force * distance of force from axis. Barrel jump is caused by the barrel being offset from the axis of rotation in your wrist. Therefore, one can minimize barrel jump by minimizing the distance of the wrist to the bore axis.

              Cut off your finger? Not all at once. But the gas and debris ejected can literally cut steel and you WILL break skin. Just as important is not touching the cylinder while are firing as you can damage the gun if you do so.

    Because that's how post-2012 "tactical" trainers on youtube told people how to shoot. So many new shooters have shown up in the last 10 years and with no prior experience, so they do what they see others doing and jump on the latest trend. Find the grip that work best for you. Look up Ben Stoeger for a different, but effective grip style. His off hand is quite low in comparison to your picture, but that's not slowing him down.

        it works right up until you have to transition between targets, at which point you way overshoot and correct which loses a ton of time.

        muscles in tension can't move precisely or smoothly. it's counterintuitive, but your arms and shoulders have to be relaxed for effective, efficient transitions
