So I tried shooting left handed...

Post by kjanracing on 4/4/2015, 6:21 pm

I just thought I'd try non dominant hand shooting, for me left handed. Maybe I didn't have expectations and just really concentrated on the basics, but I didn't do too badly. I'm going to put some of this in my training. Pistol was stock RO shooting 200 gr LWSC from [url=http://stat.dealtime.com/DealFrame/DealFrame.cmp?bm=271&BEFID=352&acode=283&code=283&aon=&crawler_id=1932207&dealId=6GZn9IfwBdo7GYSqF8-yaA%3D%3D&searchID=&url=http%3A%2F%2Frover.ebay.com%2Frover%2F1%2F711-57618-1854-0%2F2%3Fkwid%3D1%26mtid%3D570%26crlp%3D1_240251%26linkin_id%3D%7Blinkin_id%7D%26sortbid%3D%7Bbidamount%7D%26fitem%3D191377802024%26mt_id%3D570%26mpre%3Dhttp%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fitm%2Flike%2F191377802024%26mid%3D503280%26sdc_id%3D%7Bsdc_id%7D&DealName=2 Toner Tn350 Tn-350 Best Quality Cartridges Brother Printer Dcp-7020]Quality Cartridges[/url]. 25 yards.

Sorry, I'll have to work on the picture.  All in the black.  7 shots inside the 9.

Though I haven't tried shooting left handed My son did. Pain was developing in this right wrist. He was sent to a Doctor that supposedly knew how to treat the condition. Explained what it was and could easily fix it with a simple operation. He told my son he did it 3 times. While thinking about getting it done he found the doctor did indeed do it 3 times But to the same guy! Being a member of the AMU his job is to shoot so he decided to give the wrist a rest and started shooting left handed. Did well and broke 2650 left handed.
 So keep at it!! I'm sure you will develop the left had just as my son did!

When I was at AMU I started having shoulder issues. Shot left handed for about a month and broke 2600 every match. It sure was harder than shooting right handed though. Mel Makin from USAR team was 2650 left handed and 2660 right handed. So it can be done Smile

Mel switched back to right hand several years ago and is still busting 2600 regularly. He is disgustingly good for a super senior. I have to shoot against him almost every match and I am getting real used to him kicking my butt. Either hand...

I'm cross dominant, so switched to left hand.  Some things are odd, because I want to do everything with my right hand even though the pistol is in my left, but its not nearly as bad as service rifle.  Unfortunately I'm not in the 2600 club yet...lol.
