A couple of people have asked me, How do I hold my gun? Why do you hold it like that? It looks weird. So today I’m going to explain how and why I hold my firearm the way I do.
Alright everyone, today we’re going to be working with the Hudson H9 so I can show you guys how I probably hold my gun. So traditionally you would put your dominant hand on the firearm than in the empty space on the grip is where you’re going to throw in the palm of your other hand. After that, you would fold your fingers over your other hand.
Now, How do I hold the gun? I put my dominant hand on the firearm after placing your dominant hand on the firearm you’re going to set the opposite palm in the empty space on the grip. The next step is what’s different! Instead of just putting all your fingers across your hand you’re going to push your index finger in where the opposite side of the magazine release would be on the gun. After that, I put my finger against the frame on the side of the gun. That’s how I grip my gun.
A gentleman I met a while back taught me this, but I forgot what is name was. This grip style might be called something; I’m honestly not sure.
So when I’m shooting, I’m squeezing the gun together with both of my hands, giving me more control over the firearm. With this grip, I can shoot much faster, have much more accuracy in my follow up. I could explain how much better, more accurate, faster my follow-ups shot are. Everything is just awesome.
Alright everyone, What is the difference between how I shoot and how you shoot? So let’s go ahead and go over the differences. So the first thing I notice we holding the firearm the traditional way is the rise in the muzzle. With it rising in the muzzle I’m not going to be able to follow up as fast. If I hold the gun how I usually do, the biggest thing you can notice is how the gun doesn’t move.
Now That you know the way I shoot, try it at your local range and tell me what you think in the comments because I love to hear from you guys.
