always keep strong side clear I don't hold hands, carry anything, or compromise my access.

Yep, I keep my wife on my weak side, and my arm in front of hers when holding hands. Why? I can bring my hand up, tuck my right elbow inside her left, and control her entire body movement - pulling her in behind me, away from a threat. Just a little something I picked up from Randy @ DTC... I still need to come up with the time to take a class from him!

I also seem to start walking on the left foot, and my wife and I almost always end up in step when we are together(she served in the Corps also). I'm lefthanded except for shooting. My right eye is dominant so I learned to shoot right-handed.

As much as possible, I ALWAYS try have my strong hand free (or on a weapon)!

My weak hand carries a cane and my neck and left shoulder were damaged several years ago. Anything that needs to be grabbed or carried by necessity is done with my right hand. Best I can do is make sure to carry things in a way that they can be easily dropped should I need to reach for my gun.

I keep my right hand empty, keep the wife on my left side and can still hold hands.

I bet if you posted this on YouTube the local ASPCA would have been mildly curious....

the wife likes to walk on my right...my strong side....and i have explained
the tactical disadvantage of this....she is aware of it, but she is hard to change
i know sure as all get go, that if something is happening, she is going to grab
that arm....dont know if there is anything that i will be able to do to prevent that
i just try to look far enough down (around) to stay on top of the situation
Now I don't know, but I been told it's hard to run with the weight of gold.
Other hand I have heard it said, it's just as hard with the weight of lead.

Actually, she holds hands with me....

It takes a college degree to break'em;
and a high school education to fix'em!
