Drawing, holding and firing the pistol accurately with one hand at combat distances while focusing on the threat is easy when these skills are learned correctly. In my opinion, these skills should also be learned first by the new or prospective pistolero--introducing two-handed, sighted shooting only after one-hand point-shooting skills have been established.

I think you should practice all forms of shooting and drawing your gun. You should be able to get to your gun with your weak hand, and you should be able to shoot with your weak hand. Also a little tip I take from my training in the martial arts "Practice doesn't make perfect, Perfect practice make perfect." we get people all the time that rush through techniques incorrectly, and that is energy and effort wasted. However if you start out learning to draw slowly, carfully, with a purpose, do it correctly every time, eventually your muscles will remember how to do it and when the time comes for you to draw, it's an instinct.

I fully agree and so does my Dad...with the PT24/7 being my first semi-auto, he keeps coaching me to use one hand on it.

What caliber are you shooting? I'd assume a 9 would be easier to one hand than a .45.
