Tactical Tuesday: Failure to Fire Drill and a product demo

We talk a lot about how to train in a realistic manner off the range. In today’s Tactical Tuesday, Steve has a guest with him who will show a product that may be a fit for your training. Either way, they go over a failure to fire drill that is definitely worth the watch - and practice!


Is it just me, or is that dude going to rip up his hands with that grip?


Free manicure.

Ouch! That hurts just looking at his grip.

Let’s talk about his grip - what don’t you like about it? It’s the grip we teach at the USCCA.


There’s one thing I don’t like here. There is no proper lineup between pistol and forearm. No triangle, so I’m assuming this is the weaver stance position.


If this is (somehow) isosceles stance, still not perfect angle.

or maybe I’m thinking too much? :thinking::face_with_hand_over_mouth::yum:

Oh… I see that now. We do teach Isosceles so I’m guessing that this looks weird in the photo.

I’m standing at my desk doing my stance and grip and it does probably look very close to that from the top. I’m guessing the rotation of the support hand is what makes it look off.

Let me go pester a couple of instructors here and look at their grips…

Here are two of our instructors and their grips from above:

These two look ok :slightly_smiling_face:

The only explanation for me to have this grip in Isosceles stance:
is when you are right handed with left dominant eye.

Normally it should look like this:

BTW: do you teach to lock the elbows in Isosceles?
