A possible answer to the ever important question: WHY GANGSTERS HOLD GUNS SIDEWAYS?

In nearly all movies involving “gangsters” with guns, you’re bound to see the firearm cocked sideways. It was even a joke in the movie Date Night where Steve Carell’s character calls this position the “kill shot.”
A former U.S. Marine Corps marksmanship instructor thinks there could be some merit to that logic, according to the Daily Mail.
In an effort to save time, make a getaway and maintain some accuracy, Davis said the method being used is called “flash sight picture,” which aims down the side of the gun. It isn’t necessarily the most precise, but it can get the job done.
The Daily Mail reports finding Davis’ thoughts on this shooting style from the site On it he wrote:
The problem with tilt style shooting is that it is almost impossible to acquire a reliable sight alignment. The alignment in tilt style is achieved by making the weapon flat and aiming down the side.
In theory this works, but in practice you can’t accurately measure movement left or right and you have absolutely no way of knowing if the weapon is tilted down below your field of vision from the back of the weapon.
This means that you never actually take the same shot twice since you are never actually aiming the same way.
Overall, Davis writes he would not recommend this tactic because, although he calls it good in theory, it “fails miserably in the actual execution.”

THIBODAUX – Maybe it was the weight of things in his pants that caused them to sag enough to get a policeman’s attention.
A 16-year-old was walking in the middle of the road with his pants drooping below his underwear when an officer approached him.
Police said the officer several times told the teen to take his hands out of his sagging pants and hold his hands up. He refused, so the officer did a pat down, allegedly finding a handgun and five bags of marijuana.
That’s when the boy tried to run but pants falling down his legs made that a losing proposition and he was apprehended.
The teen was charged with Possession of a Stolen Firearm, Possession with Intent to Distribute Marijuana, Obstruction of a Public Roadway, Illegal Carrying of a Concealed Firearm, Illegal Carrying of a Firearm in the Presence of Illegal Narcotics, Resisting an Officer, and Curfew Violation.
He was also charged with violating the city’s saggy pants prohibition.
