Change Your Grip to Improve Your Shooting

We all know that the one-shot stop is basically a Hollywood fantasy, so it should come as no surprise that we want to get multiple rounds on target quickly. The best way to do that is to change your grip to help keep the gun on target.

I learned this method from Jason Speller at his D.R.A.W. school. It is so simple that it makes me wonder why no one came up with it before. Take your support hand and rotate the hand down about 45 degrees as you grasp the pistol; this prevents the muzzle from dropping greatly during recoil. Yes, I know the muzzle rises during recoil, but with the traditional two-handed grip, we tend to push it back down too far, guiding follow-up shots lower. This hand rotation prevents that. Give it a try. You will like how quickly and accurately you can shoot.

Limit the Movement

This simple tip limits the movement of your wrist during recoil. That means you have one less thing to worry about during rapid fire. That’s a good thing.
