Okay, so, I'm sure many of you are familiar with the Harris technique, in which you can easily use a pistol and flashlight for nighttime shooting. Fairly standard thing, you see it in movies, magazines, so on and so forth, taught to LEOs the world over. But I'm also seeing, mostly in two videogames, an adaptation of the Harris technique where instead of having a pistol and a flashlight, they use a pistol and a knife. Okay, you know, thats cool and all, but realistically speaking, how effective and/or safe is this? I'll mess with it with my airsoft 1911 and a rubber knife, but it seems like if you went to reload too fast, you'd stab yourself in the stomach. If anyone else wants to mess with it, the common method seems to be with the knife held in a hammer grip, point forward, and if you only have one sharp edge, then blade out. You see this in the latest OMG VIDEOGAMEZ, namely Modern Warfare 2 (Not a bad game, but not very accurate). Another variant we saw a few years back was OMG NAKED SNAKE in Snake Eater, where he often carried the knife in a hammer grip, but with the handle parallel to the grip of his pistol, so that the ends of the fingers on his left hand wrapped around onto the grip. Seems like it would share the same issues as the first method. Anyone have any thoughts on this ZOMG KNIFE KILLS technique in the real world?
