Practice Weak and Strong Hand

Modern pistolcraft stresses a firm, two-handed shooting grip. That’s great, but it’s not always possible. In a close-range attack, two hands may not always be available. One arm may be occupied fending off an attacker, corralling a family member or maybe even injured. The ability to deliver accurate, close-range fire with either hand can play a significant role in your ability to survive. Every practice session should include firing with the weak hand and the strong hand individually. Start from a low-ready position, fire two rounds at the first target and three rounds at the other. Then perform a fast reload and repeat. The targets will tell you where you need to improve. And, once properly learned, the subconscious will have little difficulty playing that back if it is ever needed.
