Dual Weilding
 
Is it actually an effective way of engaging targets or is it just hollywood? :confused:

I've never tried it, but the answer is that yes, it's just Hollywood. In real life, trying to fire two pistols (or worse, two SMGs), one in each hand, is ridiculously inaccurate and you won't be able to handle the recoil. Actors can only do it because they're firing blanks, which have much less recoil than live rounds.

Hollywood. You won't hit shit - though I have to argue about not being able to handle the recoil with a pistol. It's just shooting a pistol one-handed, anyone should be able to do that.

Yeah, especially if you are firing both at the same time.

I found out that Modern Warfare 2 is going to have dual wielding Desert Eagles....Now that just upsets me

If you're familiar with point shooting, or were trained in point shooting, that's basically all it is. You can be accurate with this style of shooting if you practice.

It's not a sound tactical method of dealing with a real life situation, but it's a hell of a lot of fun if you're shooting up bottles or in my case watermelons and apples.

I have done this for fun many times. Usually with a smith 39 in one hand, and a 1911 in the other. It's also fun with a team of 38 revolvers.

Two at the same time, though? I can shoot pistols one-handed, but it takes a bit more concentration to control and focus than firing two-handed. I find it hard to imagine that it wouldn't be a LOT more difficult with twice the workload. But maybe I'm wrong, I've never tried dual-wielding before (because I've never been on a range where I could do it without getting kicked out).

About the only tactical sense I can see shooting akimbo making is if you were going for suppressive fire. Everything else, either you're just not human or you're not hitting squat (at least, not at any respectable pace).

There is actually this photo that came out of the Mexican Drug wars that shows a Mexican Federal Police agent using 2 handguns at the same time.
I'll post it if i can locate it.

-edit> here it is
