People in defensive shooting situations often use a one-handed handgun grip when they should use a two-handed grip. Rob Pincus discusses why shooters tend to default to using one hand and how you can practice with both hands so you don’t make the same mistake. When a person draws a gun in a firefight, the human brain probably doesn’t like stopping the forward motion of the gun into a ready position, so a one-handed grip is quicker. By training to achieve your two handed grip while the gun is moving out towards the target, you’ll increase your chances of using two hands in a defensive situation.
Rob Pincus explains the advantages of a muzzle low ready position, especially in an extreme close quarters situation. The low ready position allows for more efficiency and consistency when moving into a shooting position and for dramatically more control if your rifle is ever grabbed by an attacker.Watch Now >>
Student alert! If your defensive firearms instructor is not giving you an integrated system of firearm manipulation techniques but rather a set of unconnected techniques that don't integrate well together, don't reinforce each other, and don't contribute to your efficiency by being consistent with one another, you need to challenge those techniques.Watch Now >>
