Okay, now we have done the three kneeling
positions, we are going to go over a little bit of the one handed position which I kind
of touched on briefly earlier. Again when you are firing one-handed it could be for
a number of reasons. Maybe you are just trying to get proficient with your strong hand and
you’ll transition to your support hand and gauge the target. Its good practice if you
are an avid shooter whether it’s recreation or for training for professional purposes.
It’s good to transition your strong hand and your support hand one handed. Could you get
into an incident where your strong hand is injured and you have to transition to your
support hand? Absolutely. And vise versa. It’s good that we become versed in both hands
in the use of firing one handedly. There is stability for one handed positions that I
showed before. You bulge it make a fist and bring it right across your chest as you are
punching out. And again when I am punching out I am not sticking it straight out and
I am not rigid. Okay, this is where I want to stability in the wrist so my wrist doesn’t
give and cause a weapon not to cycle properly. Okay, so I am not sticking all the way out
here but when I punch it out I am coming about right here. I still got some bend there and
instead of keeping it straight here I’m just going to slightly turn it like that where
I am able to engage my target and I am tight up here which keeps everything up here in
sync with each other and keeps it tight. Where I have as much stable platform for shooting.
You will see sometimes people will stand sideways and they will aim at their target. Again,
not a bad position for training purposes this is great. You know if you just want to see
what type of marksmanship skills you have one handedly. This is fine. Okay, but in a
situation if you are in law enforcement or in the military it may not be the best position
for you to be in. For law enforcement or military there is an exposure here and this is a vital
organ if you get shot under the arm. So you don’t want to expose nothing to a bad guy
that you don’t have to. But again whenever you shoot you can still face your target square
or you don’t have to be sideways to engage one handed. Same thing with my support hand,
I come up I can turn it this way. Personally I kind of like my weaver stance. Make that
fist bring it across the chest take aim, slightly turn it. It doesn’t have to be like this.
You still need your sights to be able to hit your target so we don’t want to go like this
and have our head turning this way we hear and we slightly turn it. Now nothing has changed.
I can still see my sights and I can still see my target and I can still engage it so
those are the one handed positions.
