Glad to see that other departments are utilizing this tool. Hip shooting was first taught to me by an old Chief that I worked with in the Navy and I have been a proponent of it ever since. Unfortunately, the department I work for has not included this in their standard training, although there is support for it amongst instructors. As is typical, we have to overcome the politics of the situation.
Be safe out there and always remember the first rule of duty...Go home to your wife and kids at the end of your shift!!
