    this may seem stupid as a question, but is there a competitive thing for going 2 fisted with single actions?? actualy, is there any utility for them at all? is that a practical thing? i was just watching the outlaw josey wales, and then i started eying my single sixs...

    Cowboy Action Shooting (SASS) is now recognizing the Gunfighter category; shot with a sixgun in each hand. They are fired alternately, not simultaneously and there are specific guidelines as to the order targets are to be shot in. There are also safety guidelines, you must be experienced shooting with one at a time and some places must demonstrate you can handle two guns properly before competing with them.

    There are techniques where you hold it with two hands and do the cocking with the weak-hand thumb.

    These are *very* common in SASS, and is allowed in most catagories.

    Yes Jim:
    That technique is known as slip hammering I'd say that the bulk of the CAS shooters use this technique. I've seen some shooters fire some really fast strings that way. Most CAS shooters learn to shoot this way. Then there is duelist firing the gun one handed usually starting with the gun in a raised high position. This and gunfighter a gun in each hand firing alternately are my prefered methods. I learned to fire a single action revolver one handed and I can shoot with either hand so duelist and gunfighter came naturally to me.
