I do it all the time and generally don't hit squat.
In fact, usualy you start shooting up the ground in front of you.
Fortunately, I generally run out of ammo with my .45s before I shoot off my own feet.
I do have a friend though who is very good at it.
At 25 yards he can shoot at things like old wooden signs with a pair of .45 autos and competelly obliterate them. He's like a radar controlled gun turrett with a pair of pistols.
It looks cool in the movies, but I would not recommend it for real life self defense. You are better off taking time and aiming and using both hands to control a gun.

Question: Is it practical?
Answer: No, but it can be fun.

This one's run its course.
