Can anyone tell me why Gangsters now hold their handgun sideways when they shoot?
Just usin' the fancy new sights
cause they use there other hand to pull there pants up
now that's funny !
All good answers, but not the right one. Keep on!!!!
Intreaging question....so I googled it. Lots of explaniations. The one I like the best and makes most sense is:
When actors were taking instruction for a movie in the 80's it was from a ISPC shooter. In shooting an auto around a barracade or wall on the left side the pistol is held in the sideways manner.....reportably to keep the hulls from bouncing off the wall back into the gun......Makes sense. And of course seeing it in the "Movies" it has been adapated. Not used in ISPC with a revolver.....No ejection of brass......
Second best was when shooting in Self Defense or Combat, its easier to obtain "somewhat" of a decent sight alligment on more than one target as the gun recoils sideways and not up and away. Of course Accuracy goes out the window, but mostly.....Spray and Pray.
Thats what I say....and I'm sticking by it...............
I always figured it was for the same reason that gang members wore their ball cap cocked to one side.
I've concluded that the hat was straight.
What my LEO Father says that's probably not true?
When they hold it it's ejection side is to the ground to make the discarded brass easier to pick up (You don't have to go all over looking for it) in order to hide evidence.
It probably from leaning while driving
Ya'll all have some very good thoughtful answers, but the correct answer is(drum rollllllllllllllll)........."Thats the way it comes outa the box!)
I always it was because they thought it looked hip.
I liked the one where he has to hold up his pants!! lol
