WTC - Gunfighter - Trouble with One Pistol in SASS Wire Posted 5 hours ago 1 hour ago, Badlands Bob #61228 said: Another angle to kick around. The pistol is suppose to be shot with the left hand. It malfunctions and during the clearance process, is now being gripped by the right hand. You are able to clear the malfunction and get the pistol cocked and your left hand is still touching the pistol. Without losing contact with the pistol with the left hand, simply take over the grip from the right hand. The argument is that the left hand has not left contact with the pistol since being cocked, therefore it has not been transferred. I'm afraid not. PWB already covered that. If it was being gripped by the right hand, is subsequently cocked, and ends up being gripped by the left hand, that is a transfer and will incur the penalty.
