Tips & Techniques: Rotate-To-Fire In Close Encounters

Drawing a handgun from a holster and aiming it at a target is typically described as a process involving multiple steps, but it’s worth bearing in mind that some encounters may be too close and sudden to allow the entire sequence to play out.

Perfect Practice

There is an old saying, repeated often enough to be a cliché, which says “Practice makes Perfect.” On the face of it, this might seem to apply to learning the skills of gunhandling and marksmanship. But when you think about the consequences of errors in handling a gun and using it skillfully under stress, then maybe it’s time to refine the cliché’d just a little.

Drawing From the Ground

The ideal solution to a bad situation is to be aware and get out of the area. The next best is to be aware and face the situation on both feet, with your gun in your hand. But even the best laid plans can fall to the wayside during a life and death struggle.

The Speed Draw

How fast can you draw and fire two shots? Can you do it before an attacker can get to you? You might be surprised.
