It's an old Catholic school trick. Those are patton leather shoes, and he's looking around the corner.
Remember back when the girls couldn't wear them? Skirts? Boys looking? Got it?:redface::rolleyes:

That clears up a long time mystery for me. I used to pal around with a LEO who had a medical retirement from a big city police force. He had part of his foot shot off but would never talk about how it happened.:smile:

Look closely folks, he has a mirror on his shoe.

I have seen that training technique in Europe. It is a good way to get your foot shot off!

It's going to be difficult to see the front sight with the left thumb right in front of the rear one. Not to mention the other problems that might be produced with that odd grip.

I have to agree with retsupt99, take a look at his eyes. He's looking at his foot. He's using his foot to act as a mirror so he can see what is around the corner.

Apparently his department hasn't caught on to the old mirror-on-a-stick trick yet.

The person is looking at the tip of his shoe as to be used in a mirror fashion.

But this image is as from a marketing campaign for a shoe polish product, regionally called 'Nugget', as by an ad company based out of Johannesberg, South Africa.

This is not a 'technique' as for real.
