For beginners - how to grip a pistol

Perhaps 1 or 2 people will watch the video and learn something before the thread is hijacked. I’m not holding my breath.

Very thoughtful dissertation on his part. I liked the 60/40 push being non verifiable / measurable because it is not. It is purely subjective. He also makes a very valid point regarding loosing the grip as a shot string goes on. With today’s technology it is not hard to record yourself during your shooting, every one has a cell phone or more importantly a video camera. If you are hyper aware, pull your sim card and save your video to a micro SD chip then pull that prior to putting your sim card back in.

I learned a long time ago the best method to grip a gun is the same method for greeting a man, a firm “Hand Shake” and look him in the eyes (look at the target) much to be said for that statement.




I like his videos. Most of the stuff we know from our first classes… but this guy clearly explains how to avoid and / or correct mistakes we may do with handling the handgun.

It’s always good to hear the same instructions from different professionals.

Willingness to learn something new and excepting the fact you do not know everything is the key to wisdom.
