  • It's an expression of their attitude and a general challenge towards the establishment.

    It probably gives them a significant disadvantage in a skirmish as that style for holding a firearm would be hard to master to any degree of accuracy.

    At close range it probably doesn't make too much difference if you can control the recoil.

    They think they're BAAAD doing it that way. Not only do they hold it wrong, but they shove it at the target when the fire. Do they think the bullet will go faster?

    Sheesh, stupid is as stupid does. But what do you expect from stupid 'gangstas'? hahahahahahaha

    To be different I guess. You know what they are like, anything to stand out in a crowd.

    Source(s): I swear you can't even fire a gun side ways.

    because it looks cool. If I was a gangster I'd hold my gun that way.

    Believe it or not

    -It's gives them a better aim:|

    -It keeps the grown sparks and scent from the back of the gun from getting in your face

    -You get a better grip of the gun using one hand.

    (instead of looking like a sissy, holding it with to

    hands.

    Source(s): its mostly done by left handed people to reduce the changes of the cartridge from hitting them in the face.
