Time for a skill development drill. A barricade with firing ports of varied sizes and shapes gives us an opportunity to experiment with the different pistol shooting positions we may be in when defending ourselves from behind various obstacles. The value of the exercise is in understanding how we must adjust our body position — and the angle at which the pistol is held — during defensive shooting situations.
