I have to strongly disagee. I do not switch hands and don't have a reason to. I change my grip on the front of the marker, shift the tank to my left shoulder and still use my right hand on the grip. I shoot more accurately using this technique and I can prove to you by the bruises on my right arm vs. my left that I get shot out of the right side of the bunker more often than the left. I'm just as tight or tighter shooting out the left side as I am shooting out the right. If you think about it, my technique leaves less of my body exposed because my left arm is under the marker rather than around the tank and my right arm is totally concealed.
Just because it's not what the pro's do does not mean it's any less effective or wrong. If no one ever did anything different, how would things change?
