Ian Strimbeck of Rune Nation LLC talks about the thumb pectoral index, which was originally developed by Craig Douglas of ShivWorks. We see a lot of shooters firing from the the hip and/or rib cage with the gun flat when practicing shooting from retention.

Practice at your own risk, and follow all laws in accordance with concealed carry and having to potentially use a weapon in self defense.
