If you are a TC Encore Pro Hunter pistol/rifle owner you have the swing hammer to cock your weapon with a scope installed.
I am a 20 year, retired, federal law enforcement officer and was a firearms instructor. I was initally trained with a S&W model 13 .357 Magnum and was taught the Weaver position. As a right hand shooter, I would have a full grip with my right hand and locked down my right thumb with my off hand thumb. When we qualified, we had to shoot prone at the 50 yard line. Most of the time I would shoot M13 in the single action mode by cocking the hammer with my off-hand thumb.
It looks like the TC Encore Pro hunters like, Jim Shockey and Larry Weishuhn are right hand shooters and have their hammer swung left. That means they have to loosen there strong hand and use their strong hand thumb to reach over the frame to cock the weapon.
I naturally set my TC Encore Pro Hunter Pistol hammer to the left.
All this leads me to ask, what position do you have your TC Encore Pro Hunter swing hammer set to and are you right or left handed?
