    i was thinking of trying to train myself to shoot 2 guns in different directions at 2 separate targets...

    yea i know, i watch too many movies and play too many video games.

    yea I want to have two separate targets; using my body as about a 90-120 degree angle to shoot both targets at the same time.

    How terribly unsafe sounding to be shooting in a direction you aren't looking. If you insist on being stupid, do it with bb guns.

    really won't hit anything accurately with any high rate of speed and its not all that fun, even if you are aiming them at the same target.

    For accuracy, I'd say train with one gun and the ability to quickly change between target.

    Where are you going to shoot that you have safe directions 90-120 degrees apart?

    Nothing wrong with having a little fun and taking two pistols and firing them with both hands for fun, but for training, speed and accuracy picking up and changing targets as well as training to shoot one pistol in either hand would be better ideas.

    Guy in the video looked like he was just throwing lead downrange. Given that the silhouette target looked to be all of about thirty feet away, it's possible that he hit the paper a few times.

    If you want something goofy like a 90 degree spread, you might be able to get away with it assuming you're only having to seriously aim at one target while the other is close enough or large enough that you can hit it by point shooting with only your peripheral vision. Save for some TV- movie- or video game-like situation where you need to "cover" two targets within a few arm-lengths' distance at once, I can't see this as being at all practical.

    Don't think you've got a snowball's chance in hell of aiming and shooting at at two widely-separated targets simultaneously with any accuracy unless you can steer your eyes independently - which might jack up your binocular vision.

    It might work if both your targets are close enough that you don't really need to aim, sort of like throwing a ball at some target you're not looking at - the geometry is generous enough that you can achieve sufficient accuracy without aiming, just pointing. But I think those targets are going to need to be depressingly large and it's going to be stupidly difficult to achieve results (ie you might be able to get a round or two per fifteen with typical fatass silhouette targets at 4-5 paces).

    I saw someone do it on TV once. The show was all about different people doing different tricks/styles of shooting. It wasn't some crazy action movie. More like a documentary on the History channel about shooting/guns.

    Found a link :http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPwy2FdwRJI
    This is the show, but not this particular stunt.

    Anyhow, one of the things that someone did was to shoot 2 balloons at >90 degrees. The hardest part they said was that he had to shoot at exactly the same time because the recoil from one gun would push him off target on the other. It was a cool trick, but was nothing more...

    If engaging multiple assailants is what you are truly trying to master, two words " Tactical Priority ". It's something we practice in IDPA whne engaging multiple targets when hard cover is not an option.

    If you want to practice shooting lots of rounds in "practice".
