    what distance do you recommend for someone with maybe 1000 rounds experience on this drill?

    Guerrilla Approach, Very good tutorial. Especially about support hand, too far forward which causes the support elbow to rise-up and pop-out like you illustrated, never seen anyone talk about that when teaching grip, very good point again! One thing that would make this video better: have the cameraman zoom-in on your hand and pistol, it's too far away...

    He doesn't know what he's talking about! I've got almost 15 years of Call of Duty experience, it all about keeping your mouse hand loose!

    Ive been shooting for almost 25 years, after 10's of thousands of rounds dowrange and several pistol instructions, Im still suffering grip issues that degrade my accuracy.This video was right on time because about a month ago, I began the mission to break everything down and build everything back up, starting with my grip. Thank you for this. This timely video is a sign I guess Im on the right track.

    Okay everyone is the instruction on hand placement correct or not? I own a Glock 23 gen3 40 cal & if I don't use my off hand thumb to hold it down----it's a FLOP willB all over the place. I was just told to dial back on my right hand grip, that all I need IT FOR was to control my Glock trigger ??? When the instructor did it from 3 yards 10 out of 10 times dead bull. How can I argue, back to what works----RIGHT/

    The way you handle your gun is delightful to watch. That muzzle discipline is strict ♥

    m3 m3 I agree. It may look silly but he is probably doing it to keep his students focused on his grip. He mainly uses that technique to show the grip and pressure points on each side of the gun and with each hand. Obviously for safety reasons as well but you already address that.

    i think it's kind of silly what he does pointing it in the air. Why doesn't he just turn the opposite way (down range).

    I've watched the vid 3 times to absorb what you were saying and think it through with dry fire. Then I went to the range and began to experiment with the "principles" and increase my speed. It worked! I mean it worked wonders on my ability to shoot accurately at speed. I still struggled to not want to over extend my support arm because that's how I have done it for years but my grip is a lot more solid thinking about locking the middle finger and pinky finger around my corresponding trigger ...

    The thing that made me start listening to what Aaron had to say was his Instagram bio "I used to convince farmers to exchange their shovels for Kalashnikovs."

    Ron Avery does a very interesting module on grip where he has students take a sopping wet thick handtowel and wring it out hard, strong hand rotating knuckles down and support hand rotating knuckles up. That combination of gripping firming but also using counter rotational force was a real *lightbulb* moment. It gets your strong hand tensioning downward through the pinky and the supporthand grinding the meat of the palm into the top of the grip, under the slide lock. Friction and tension is what you...
