Re: shooting from the hip?
cowboys--CASS/SASS-- shot light loads. perhaps 6.5gr unique under a 250gr LRNFP. 700 fps tops.
rules do not allow for cocking the gun till the sights are on target. so no fanning or snap shots. a hip shot will get you DQ'ed.
it is considered dangerous to cock a hammer as you are drawing. well, it is.
a special holster with a piece of steel in it that is curved away from the body below the muzzel is made.
practice point shooting and when you are comfortable with add the draw--BUT do not cock the hammer till the barrel is level to the ground and you are on target.
google 'sammy davis quick draw' for a visual how its done
teachers may learn you the rules;
experience will teach you the exceptions.
