Well, Bill probably shoots better than I do. I certainly do suck. Only qualify Expert or Distinguished Expert every year with my Dept.

I shoot better weak hand only than strong hand only. And I do practice some one hand each way every range trip. Another oddity for me is practicing 2 handed weaknside. Useful for shooting around the wrong side of cover.

My regular range does not restrict you from shooting one handed either way. But they do get a little pissy if you shoot up their cables!

I practice with my off hand. I do better when I don't put any thought into it. If I think about shooting with my off hand it gets to complicated real fast. If I just draw the gun and shoot it I do great. I have to get around the mental aspects of shooting off handed before I can move forward physically. I guess at some point we all have to fight those little battles.

I think my weak hand never learned to anticipate recoil. Strong hand was "in charge" when I was first working through that bad habit. So it still remembers and flinches a little.

being right handed and having broken my right hand and wrist several times over the years, i have learned to do many things with my left hand to compensate for my right being out of service.

i am not quite as accurate or as smooth using my left, but i can manage to get by if i had to.

I broke my right arm a few years back. I was amazed at how untrained my left hand was. Everything was a challenge; holding a spoon, brushing my teeth and hair, simple things became difficult.
