Whether we are talking about so called “hip shooting” or “Speed Rock” the situation being encountered is supposed to be the same.

That is you have your pistol holstered and are face to face with a bad guy. When he attempts to draw something you are supposed to push off/strike the BG with your weak-hand, draw with your strong hand and begin to shoot. This is laughable at best.

This is what happens when firearms guys are not DT guys or vice versa. There are two different things that I do from here. One is that if he is making a furtive movement I will attempt to close whatever little distance is between us (I deal with people within arms reach) and trap/control the weapon hand.

The second which replaces the technique I called laughable is as soon as you see furtive movement is to shove the suspect in the chest with both hands like a football linemen. By that I mean try to get up and under his pecs to force him back on his heels.

Then as he goes ass over tin cups you draw your pistol and engage at the same time moving off line and back while seeking available cover. Pushing him back does a few good things; one is that it breaks his balance sending him backwards.

If his hands have not made it to the waistband they will go out to his sides and up letting you see clean hands or a weapon. As his head rocks back he will involuntarily close his eyes for a spit second. With one shot you can disrupt two of the three things needed to attack, sight base and air.

I never understood why you would want to split your energy by striking with one hand.

If you can have their back to a wall or a car so they can smash their head off of it even better. When you do the Panic Push keep your elbows in for power and strike with the heel of the palms.
