At the Range: Learning Pistol Grip Basics

Learning the Proper Pistol Grip

Today at the Range, we’re talking Pistol Grip Basics.

1.  Seat your grip firmly into the webbing of your strong hand.
2. Use the palm of your off (non shooting) hand to fill in the gap and secure your grip.
3. Push forward with the dominant arm (shooting arm).
4. Pull back with the non shooting hand/arm.

Keep your pistol grip firm & tight! This push/pull will help off-set the rise from the recoil, as well as any torque left of right. You want to practice pulling from your hip right into this position, to immediately get your front site in between the rear sites. Consistent practice and training is key to being comfortable and effective with your pistol.

And remember – always keep your finger off the trigger until you’re actually ready to shoot!
