i forget the reason why i had to learn to shoot like that, maybe injury related or somethng, but i can remember in close quarters combat situations, point n shoot, it wasn't that far all than the norm.....
Gun holding technique is a mini IQ test. Those that hode it sideways, probably score under 100 - those that use the technique shown in your url are probably not quite that bright!Originally Posted by slvoid
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.
Ayoob backwards is Boo ya.
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.
