Rob Pincus is joined by left-handed defensive firearms coach Stan Lee to provide handgun shooting tips that cover how a left handed shooter draws a gun from their hip and engages a threat that is on the driver’s side of a car. The technique follows the same principles as the technique a right handed shooter would use in the same situation. The key to success is twisting the body in the seat so that the shooter can lean back from the window and get to an extended shooting position without driving the muzzle into a closed window or extending the gun outside of the car where it could be grabbed or struck.
It appears to me from watching this that a lefty shouldn’t even use a holster on the left hip. It already is in the way and the draw appears awkward. Better to have a belly holster on the right side so you can safely draw up and out smoothly?
Was the full seatbelt with shoulder strap on at the beginning of the training video? I did not see the shoulder strap. Or was the shoulder strap pulled to the left side not being used.
Thanks for the this scenario but you left out the part about having to shoot out the passenger side with a passenger in the front seat to keep the empty case and debris from hitting the passenger in the face.
Glad to finally see a video on defensive tactics for lefthanders. I was a NYC police officer from 1974 to 1994 and we never learned this. Thanks and keep them coming.

Something good to try on quiet night shifts in the patrol vehicle (new Explorers-speaking of more confined vehicles!) I have access to our inert training guns and can use that for safer practice just to get the mechanics down.
Great information for left handed people like myself.
Excellent presentation for us lefties. I am always looking for info that helps us lefties overcome our “handicap” living in a right-handed world when it comes to self defense. I hope to see more info for lefties including some knife techniques.
Great to see left hand shooting techniques, this one specifically addresses an awkward scenario for a very common situation. Keep up the good work, thanks PDN.
