    They both will work in a Wally World parking lot.
    Close enough for 'government' work.

    practice practice more practice..... The shooting from the hip/from concealment, or really anything other than just sitting there "wasting ammo" as I like to call it in a standing range position is better. In a real life scenario you will not have time for a perfect stance... all gunfights have 80% movement in them

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    I knew somebody would make my day and I'd laugh out loud. I appreciate that for sure.

    One handed hold, two handed hold, draw and shoot? Double action on both. Still kind of comparing things on not so even terms. The groups at 10yds? Good. Where's the G19 at 7yds...drawing from concealment and point shooting from the hip target? If you're leaning one way or another or attempting to balance them out, we should know. Pics are always good!

    I have a few odd shooting habits, I usually shoot revolvers one handed and autos two handed weaver. It was just the way I learned as a kid and 40 odd years and many thousands of rounds later, it is a lot of muscle memory. I do practice firing from both one and two handed stances, point shooting, and drawing from concealment holsters with both guns. I almost never shoot from a bench or rest unless I’m sighting in or trying new ammo or guns. I think 90 percent of my practice is “defensive” with the target set at various distances. I used to shoot IPSC many years ago when I was in the Navy and the two handed weaver is so ingrained, that is how I shoot autos without thinking about it. I practiced so much in the sort of old school style of wrapping the left hand finger over the trigger guard, that I can’t break myself of the habit even though most people don’t shoot that way anymore.

    Glad that you were able to find a place that lat you draw and shoot from the hip. Unfortunetly most ranges do not allow this. Some ranges even limit the capacity in your mag and the pace in which you shoot.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    It's nice to have open woods for my backyard. I purchased IDPA cardboard targets and made some cheap PVC target stands. I always practice drawing from a concealed position, on the ground, singal handed etc... I will also position targets in different positions with good and bad targets. Changing it up is good. Standing squared but at 7 yards is boring as it gets.
