Hey everyone ...Lex here coming at you with tonight’s post on practicing your shooting with your “Non-Dominate Hand.” The importance of practicing this technique, can come down to a situation where it could help save your life. Imagine yourself where you unfortunately end up having to fight for life, that leads you to using your “hands” first. Your dominant hand is now out of the “fight,” and your are forced to use your non-dominate hand if you decide to draw your firearm. How do you go about things? This is where the importance of training comes into play.
My non-dominant hand is my left hand, and it has been extremely interestingly to go through the process of training. One thing that I will do when I go to the range, is lay everything out in front of me that will be used for the day (firearm, empty magazines, ammo in closed boxes, etc.) at this point I will than take my right hand and draw it close into my chest. Once I have made sure to check my stance, and that I am relaxed as I possibly can be, I start with the process. Opening ammo boxes with one hand, loading magazines, loading my firearm, racking the slide, etc. Now you never realize how hard this is until you exactly start LOL. Once I get past all of that, I than practice my shooting my firearm in my left hand by using the “canted technique.” (This is something I will go into Next Thursday which forces you to come back for more information ) Overall, practicing with your non-dominant hand will open your eyes on so many different things. Take the time at least once or twice a month at your range sessions to become comfortable with your non-dominant hand, this will help you become more efficient. One of the best pieces of advice given to me, you want to be able to do whatever it takes to “Stay in the fight, to protect yourself by any means necessary!” Thanks for reading!!
