    What pistol(s) can you with the most accuracy one handed? Mine has to be my 1911.

    Sounds like perfect practice. I curious though because in an unfortunate scenario only one hand works, what would be the easiest handgun for you to accurately shoot?

    I haven't done it yet but it is a good idea to train one handed shooting in case one of your hand get "disabled".

    I'll try that next time.

    Pretty much anything. I only shoot one handed unless it's a really long shot. I also shoot with either hand.

    I don't shoot strikers or shoot anything in DA mode.

    I don't know if this answers the question asked but that would be any pistol I CC, a two hand grip would be best but in the time of need might be one hand only on the firearm. That might inclued your weak hand, bad might find you in many situations that you have to adapt to prevail. Practice two hand, one hand and weak hand. S&W M&P 45 is what I train with for that moment in time.

    Pretty much all of them. SA maybe a bit more. There may be a time you will not be able to shoot with both hands. Every defensive scenerio will be different and you may need to block an aggessor with the other hand or arm, or injury may require the use of just one hand. Mag loading and racking of slide may be required to be done one handed as well. I train shooting one handed frequently.

    I pretty much shoot one handed all the time. I cc and practice constantly one handed. Offhand too. Ages ago I gave up "bullseye" shooting with pistols. If I can put all 8 or 17 shots in something the size of a one gallon milk jug at 25 ft. I think I'm good to go for sd. And no, that's not all I practice on. I set up multipul targets of various sizes at different distances. Things like tomato soup and creamed corn cans (unopened of course), water bottles, 750 ml cardboard scotch containers, clay pigeons, anything I have around.
    I always remember the scene from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid - "can I move?" ;)

    Toss up between my Taurus PT92, EAA Witness 9mm and my SR9C. I can shoot the Smithy Sigma 40 accurately one handed BUT its just awkward and i dont like how it recoils (tilts right and jumps up) making it take a rediculous amount of time to get back on target :mad:

    I practice with a two handed grip, right hand only, and left hand only. IMO it's good to practice using different grips. In a self defense situation, you might not have time to get a perfect stance and two handed grip.

    The gun I shoot the best one handed is a G19.

    The most accurate one handed would be a Russian built .22 " Free pistol"
    Second would be my Hammerli International.

    In everyday guns probably one of my 1911 s.

    Before just recently I always just used my pistol for sport and fun. Now it is also for hd/sd. Iv tryed it one handed but I am horrible with it. My gun is a .40 cal sigma and I am a very small guy. With two hands i can almost hit a pin head at 25 ft with one hand Im lucky if I hit the side of a barn. I am looking for maybe a 9mm to carry and I will be doing a whole lot more practice.

    I train to shoot all of my sidearms one handed, both left and right. You may not have the luxury of a two-handed grip in some circumstances.

    I was a Range Master, military firearms instructor during the 60's, as well as a member of the Eleventh Naval District Pistol Team. All competition was one-handed, with 1911 & Colt Woodsman .22 lr pistols.
