i've never tried dual wielding in anything other than the old area 51 arcade game but i dont think it would be too bad if you had a couple compensated .40's or 9mm's, i wouldnt want to try it with my .357 sig.. i dont even like firing that thing 1 handed too much
From what i was told by a dude who's big into hunting, you can't dual wield and actually be decently accurate with it beyond 10ft. His words, not mine. I've never touched an actual gun in my life so correct me if it's not true.

Achievements are not for the meek, it is better to forfeit inheritance of the earth so that the mighty may look upon my gamerscore, and despair. Achievements are for men who dream; men who dare; men who achieve! Men who carve out entire galaxies with nothing more than nimble cheetos-dusted fingers and their wits, and in our leisurely twilight days we shall sit by softly flickering fires with our descendants recounting the tales of these unimaginable glories.

if you think about it.. alot of old time gun fighters used to carry 2 revolvers and were very proficient with them.. wild bill hickock was one of them.. you dont always sight down the sights to aim.. when you build enough skill it really is an extension of your arm and you basically learn how to point where you want to shoot and you'll hit what you are aiming at..

fyi, i think my buddy meant two separate targets and firing at roughly the same time. said he had tried it a while back with a couple m9's(sp?) on his property upstate.

true but maybe back then, those 6 shooters werent very accurate to begin with so maybe dual wielded hip firing was just as good and a 2handed grip. But with modern pistols now, a 2handed grip made dual-wielding obsolete? Again, i have no idea and am only speculating.

I'm sure my left arm would be significantly worse than my right arm. I've done several "friendly competitions" at a neighbor's house who has some nice flip-back targets and bowling pins and stuff to shoot at.... i really need to steady up to be accurate beyond 15'. It's more difficult than it looks.

Side note: yesterday was the first time I had to take the gun out and move through the house - my door entry noise went off at about 8pm at night and I was upstairs in the bedroom. Turns out the wind had just pushed the door open in the garage (I hadn't closed it the whole way) but it was the first time I've actually chambered a round inside my house and gone to check it out. A little freaky, glad it was nothing!

no.. actually six shooters are more accurate than modern slide shooters.. and if you've ever felt a single action colt it is very comfortable in your hand.. the way to make a gun more accurate is to keep the barrel stable.. with a six shooter the barrel never moves, but with a slide gun the barrel moves with every shot

It's only gay if you push back!

I've never fired a gun in my life but now I kinda wanna try. I remember when I was in Hawaii they kept passing out flyers to ranges that had a ton of different ARs you can try. Kinda wish I did it now.

I have shot 2 semi-auto pistols at a time before, it is not at all accurate. I am sure if you practice a TON you could be decent, but it is really tough.
