    due to the inability to understand a phrase that he actually defined I knew it was a troll from the get go.

    because your anecdotal experience firing one handed is irrelevant. It proves nothing other than your own capabilities (or lack thereof).

    I posted the link because it shows that one handed firing is both possible and useful in some circumstances.

    And one handed shooting is relevant to a discussion that includes mass shooting because they often move about the location, opening doors as they proceed. Having one hand free, while having the other ready to fire is useful for someone planning to move around and shoot many people.

    And the link discusses shooting a rifle with one hand
    I was talking about the part of my post that was talking about changing magazines. You ignored that part.

    The Remington 870 isnt a rifle but ok. Did that shotgun have a pistol grip or not? Because from what I understand police issued Remington 870s dont have pistol grips which would actually prove my point.

    Oh, I see. Ok, here's my response

    You argued that having a pistol grip doesn't make it easier to release the magazine. The thing is, I never said a pistol grip made it easier to release the mag. What I said was that ahving a pistol grip made it easier to locate the magazine release in a more egonomic position, which in turn makes it easier to release the magazine while keeping ones finger on the trigger and the other hand free

    And it doesn't matter if that shotgun had a pistol grip. I posted the link to show that one handed shooting was possible, and in some situations, desireable.

    you can't prove a point to someone with no knowledge.

    guns are ba-a-a-a-ad. he doesn't even know what he's talking about, he is arguing a point he doesn't even understand.

    What is more ergonomic than extending your index finger straight out which is how AR magazines are released? BTW, why would you release a magazine with you finger on the trigger?

    It doesnt make it easier to locate the magazine release either. Good placement of the magazine release is what makes it easier to locate and use.

    Would you care to respond the rest of my last post?

    Ok you edited your post to include this so I will respond. I never said it wasnt possible to fire one handed but it certainly is never desirable. Sometimes it might be necessary however.
