Wayne at the American Firearms School schooled me the other day. I was practicing unholstering the Wilson Combat Bill Wilson Carry. “Why are you switching off the safety when you get into your full stance?” he asked. Which was Wayne’s way of saying “Don’t be an effing idiot. Turn the safety off as soon as the gun comes out of the holster; you may have to shoot from the hip (as unaccustomed as I am to doing so in the editorial sense).” Luckily, he got to me early on in my transition from the Glock 30SF to the 1911. On the positive side, I always practice one-handed shooting (and not shooting) one-handed. Both weak and strong. Is one-handed shooting a standard part of your training routine? How about you self-defense rifle and shotgun guys? If so, does one-handed shooting effect your choice of weapon? [see: today’s post about 1911 safety].
