FBI training film for the Air Force, circa 1960.
Some old skool fundamentals for those of us that still own them and carry them.
And by old skool I mean, 'not used much anymore'. Look, one handed shooting Ma! And the old "pop a squat" stance, too. Point shooting! Good times. Still, lots of bad guys got dead with that method back in olden times.
They do start out with Rule #2 (never point it anything you don't want to destroy). At least that is a good start
Neat. A "crack the whip" method of drawing from the holster. At 4:03. Don't like that at all... Bad retention.
