Does anyone out there know of any methods being taught (Thunder Ranch, Gunsite, or
whereever by whomever) for shooting around the right side of cover if your right arm is
completely immobilized; (or vice-versa) with
out exposing your entire body?
As a law enforcement firearms instructor
and IALEFI member myself, I have never been to a school or read an article dealing with this issue. Sure, we all teach one hand/ injured hand reloading and malfunction clearence drills; but how do we hide and shoot now that we've got the gun back in action. Any thoughts on the best technique
for shooting around the right side of a wall, with the weak hand only, exposing as little of the body as possible?

If you cant the pistol sideways you can expose less of yourself when shooting around the right side of cover with your left hand. The change in point-of-impact is negligable at typical pistol fight ranges. I also cant the pistol when shooting freestyle around the left side of a barricade, keeping the pistol in my dominant right hand. I'm not switching to my left hand as long as my right one works.

Action Target L.E. video magaizne has a segment this issue by Bank Miller (SigArms Academy) in which he addresses this issue. The technique taught is the same as Roscoe mentioned in his post.
