- , shoot across my chest
-hold gun at the waist facing front, raise and shoot without aiming
-if no one else is in the next lane I even stand in that, lean across
the divider and shoot
_ shooting from the hip
- I'd like to practice from car-drivers seat but range director won't let me
So, anybody else have ways to practice indoors? Just seems more practical, for SHTF time, to practice one-handed, point-shooting etc. One thing I've noticed- when shooting across my abdomen- I tend to pull the trigger before I really intend to. I mean I have the gun pointed the right direction before I put my finger in to the trigger guard but,it's weird- I stop to think just for a split second and BAM. Gotta work on that. Doesn't happen when I hod it up at chest-height, or even when raising-firing fast as I can. Just- weird.
Indoor ranges are good for shooting bulls eyes, but that's about it. What you need to do is find a class that teaches several different courses in handgun tactics for SD. If your shooting stance is good, you're probably not moving fast enough or using cover correctly. You can't practice this in an indoor shooting range!
Y'all be safe now, ya hear!
