Reads like an Onion article.

Actually, I'm pretty sure the article is the real deal, Ayoob is a long-time handgun safety instructor.

"Polls indicate that thugs consider 'how you be representin' be just as important as how you be shootin'.'"

What I want to know is just who is polling gansta's on shooting technique and style.

Massad Ayoob is a firearms / combat instructor. The article quotes "Marian" Ayoob, and is clearly satirical.

When I was trained in the use of handguns for defence, we were trained to cant the gun to a 45% angle when shooting one-handed, as it allows your arm and wrist to be more naturally aligned. Of course, tipping it all the way to one side is absurd, and turning it upside down ... well, I could only hope anyone shooting at me would try that.
