deriv. (Old West--when a person who 'shot from the hip' pulled their trigger in a proper draw (ie from a hip holster.) This is in direct contrast to a person who arrived to the gunfight with guns drawn. By extension, a person who 'shoots from the hip' possesses the positive quality of handling a situation in the prescribed mode.)

the moment in which your gonna ejaculate on a girl.
I'm gonna shoot it, bang-boom
Shoot from the hip Got it loaded bang, pull the trigger boom I don't never miss
Hot sweaty steel, a woman's finger's on my gun
Pull it hard, touch the trigger Squeeze it when I'm gone
Ooh, come, woman, touch me, put it in your hand
Take a hold heart and soul Honey, I'm your man
Cock the hammer slowly and aim it at your love
Put my barrel in your holsterHot and sticky, here it comes
I got the bullet, load it up Slide it into place
My emotions Coming down all across your face
Like a velvet glove
A 'hip' (no pun intended) way to take photographs with the LOMO Camera. Those who use this Russian camera usually carry it everywhere with them and call their hobby 'Lomography'. The camera has a special lens that gives sometimes erratic results, but eventually all photos look cool.
'Lomographers' shoot everyday objects as they travel and don't use the viewfinder; instead, they hold the camera at the hip and click - this increases the whole excitement of waiting for the film to develop, cuz u'r not sure what you will get.
Shooting a weapon while holding it really low, at hipline, as the name suggests. Usually done by only highly skilled marksmen, since aiming like that is very difficult.
When I shoot from the hip, I need an entire magazine to hit the broad side of a barn.
