Hey-o!

I remembered posting this move a while back in the general SG board (before there was anything else) and thought it might be worthwhile to repost it here for easier reference.

I call it Quick Draw (or "Barney Fife" because I got the idea watching him demonstrate proper technique just prior to shooting himself in the foot). Basically, you hold your SG at your side and then draw it up along your body a little to clear the "holster" then bring your elbow to 90 degrees and extend the weapon forward in a threatening manner. Shouting "BANG" at this point is entirely optional. Then you reverse the movement and return the SG to it's "holster".

I use a low-slung tactical holster because it allows a fuller range of movement (and I think they look cooler, but that's not the point), but you can go with the traditional wild west style, or even a cross-draw if you're into that.

EDIT: I should probably point out that "Quick Draw" is sort of a misnomer, and part of the joke (who quick-draws a 10 pound pistol!?). I would advise focusing on making the movement as smooth and fluid as opposed to trying to do it fast.

Hey, imagine it's a bazooka or a panzerfaust and a King Tiger or T-34 has just come round the corner. You'd draw pretty fast Smile

Sounds very similar to "flip the lever" -- except with pleasantly homicidal (or tankicidal) connotations.

If you get really stong, maybe twirl your weapon around a few times before reholstering.

Hmm . . . I'll have to try that twirly bit with the 6# next time I get it out. Very Happy

It's funny, I had this idea ages ago when I first found out about SG, but not long ago I saw a video on a clubbell site with a guy using basically the same move as actual training for bodyguard's quickdraw technique. I'll have to see if I can dig it up next time I get a chance.

Found it!

The Gallazzi Handgunner Press, for developing a steady hand and a quick draw.

Nice!

(edited your post to fix an extra character breaking the link)

I was actually thinking of taking a class at the MIT firing range... so it might actually come in handy!

Thanks for the edit! I feel pretty silly thinking that this link has been here so long and hasn't worked. Embarassed

Let me know if it helps your aim. Wink

I like this one. It also works with a scenario I am ironing out. What about "rifleman?" The head of the SG is the muzzle of the rifle. Pull the "rifle" up, pause (to shoot, of course!), lower, and repeat. Problem is, it could be hard on the base of the neck unless posture is perfect.

Hey, I like that! I'm more of a swordsman than a gunner, but I'll have to play with that idea. I'm sure some bayonet work could be slipped in there as well.
