Tactical Tuesday: One Handed Draw

We all train to shoot one-handed, but do train to draw one-handed? I know I’ve done a lot of training with a two-handed draw, but I rarely train for a one-handed draw.

What challenges do you see with a one-hand draw?


Now that I think about it. I don’t think I have ever drawn a gun with two hands. My left hand doesn’t even know how to hold a pencil. :rofl: :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:




Unless I have on a zipped up jacket, I can draw with one hand. Good to practice if you use a two handed draw.

I do practice one handed draw, in conjunction with point shooting from the hip.


CQB (defined in this post as < 10 feet) will be one handed and will NOT even involve the use of site radius. Once your weapon is drawn and IF you are able to take a step or two backwards (safely) you may end up with a two handed posture available. Statistically, you are way more likely to draw your weapon without needing to shoot. Keeping your emotions under control so you don’t shoot unless needed is the problem spot for us!
