I shoot qualifying targets with snubbies, and a Hi-Point at 100 yards, off hand. When I was in the Navy near Avenal California, I used to shoot running Jackrabbits with my Colt S.A.A. .45, Off hand.

What good is the handgun if you don't shoot off hand well??? Practice, shooting offhand if like playing a piano by hand, otherwise use a rifle...

I'll give you my definition of good off hand shooting. Keep all of the shots in a space between the nipples horizontally. Keep them between the base of the sternum and lowest point of the collarbone vertically.

If you can do that with three shots, from the draw, in four seconds at 7 yards you are doing well.

Then there is the 4-5 school of thought. 5 shots in a 5" circle from 5 yards in 5 seconds.
Here's my credo: There are no good guns, There are no bad guns. A gun in the hands of a bad man is a bad thing. Any gun in the hands of a good man is no threat to anyone, except bad people.
