Look into SDA, though in SDA I train my dogs to bite whatever is presented and if nothing is presented they bite the armpit since they can target that from the front or the back. I do not train dogs to discriminate between which hand is carrying the weapon (sometimes they both have guns). The armpit is soft and fleshy and hurts like hooha, someone cannot fire a weapon from either arm with a GSD full grip on their armpit!
