possible OT repost?
theres a fix to that though.
haven't you seen those scopes that mount on the side of the pistol?
that's old, and obviously not true.
We train at the range holding our guns to the side and shooting, though it's in a CQC type scenario
that dosnt work at all with a XD or other handgun with a grip safety
C.A.R., central-axis relock, is the style that actually uses a sideways shooting, and it's been proven ineffective, because you can't aim like that in a real-life situation. there's a reason the sights are on top of the pistol. CAR is supposed to keep the pistol in close for retention, but i can do that shooting normal-style. also, it puts your strong side elbow way up in the air, just begging to be shot off. it puts both hands and both arms up in your field of view, and blocks a lot of your vision.
but, hey, do what works for you. these are my observations on the method.
Im going to try that at the range tomorrow.
