I use the Modified Gangster approach.

You use your right hand like you are hanging off of monkey bars with it only, pointing the pistol and “throwing” the bullets while the other hand is holding the crotch of your pants to keep them up.

It’s terrible for hitting the person you may be shooting at but always racks up an innocent bystander in Chicago/DC/Atlanta etc.

I read a recent story about a member of a hunting party suffering fatal friendly fire... he was in the brush/reprod when a member of the party made a good "sound shot"! Seems as there are too many of these stories! People just don't get the word...

Around here we call them "Portland hunters". :p;):D



With the asshattery over, my personal preference is a front sight focus or keeping eyes on the target. I don’t do well with a rear sight focus.
Sights? Don' need no stinking sights!!!

I'd like some body language expert explain that disgusting act...
All in imitation of that ultra famous beta dude, Michael Jackson! Though he was hardly a "gangsta" type, he always had a hand on his crotch. I think he was looking for his other glove...
 
I don’t think you should pigeon-hole yourself into any one method. When I’m close to someone or a group, I’m totally target fixated. If its gonna happen, it will be fast and dirty and that’s not a good time to figure out your draw and reactive shooting skills are lacking. I also tend to stay more square to the target.

From further away, I’m more deliberate and focus hard on the front sight. I also tend to blade off a little more. Bad habit, maybe. But, I can hit more consistently.

This is where a RDS gives an advantage. It allows you to sat more target fixated regardless and also allows for easier shooting at distances 15 yards and out.

Don't laugh too much at the gangsta style. If I recall, FBI studies have shown that bad guys have better hit percentages that LEO.
