Shooting offhanded.
 
Well 3 years ago I was hit by a drunk driver and now the spe******t is going to operate on my right shoulder. I am right handed and right eye dominant.
So needless to say no shooting . Unless I shoot offhanded????

Any one any good at this? Got any pointers?

Shooting offhanded
 
Bear Down,
I hope yours will not be a permanent disability to shoot two-handed.

By off-hand, if you mean shooting one handed, it is a skill all shooters should practice regularly. In a tactical situation your support hand may become disabled, or otherwise occupied and one handed shooting is something useful to know.

By off-hand, if you mean shooting one handed with your usual support hand, ditto the above comment.

To achieve any sort of shooting skill, one or two handed, grip, sight alignment, trigger control and practice, practice, practice.:cool:

Excellent advice but I should have specified big bore 300Mag. For hunting I think I will start with the .22 and work my way up just to keep from getting scoped. And as you say practice ............ . And limit my shots to 150 yards. And pull for the heart and lungs.

Ouch! Are you sure the ol' 300 maggie is going to be the one to stick with?

Ditto, Dutch. Any N. American game can be taken with a lot less recoil within 150 yards. The new and improved .30-30 Hornady LeveRevolution ammo can do the same job, with a lot less pain.

No as long as I can get up to the 223 Preferably the 308 I will be OK.
But I will have to shoot off hand because the joint wont be fully healed, Plus they have to work on the tendons And muscle heads.
But I will not miss the season.
