Why Do Gangsters Hold Their Guns Sideways?
The reason is actually to help them aim faster by utilizing a technique known as “Flash Sight Picture.”
I specialized in pistols and have fired these weapons thousands of times. That said, the thought has crossed my mind. The answer didn’t come to me until another coach (from the “hood”) gave me a good reason why this technique would be used. In practice, it actually does utilize one very important sighting practice, but fails overall.
