My wife had one flaw shooting any pistol, she kept sticking her thumb up and got twin racing stripes on her thumb from the slide coming back.After tossing the pistols 5 yards she is now a revolver advocate, no such problems unless she gets bit from the powder flash from the front of the cylinder!

Lol...ya. we started showing the little Asian girl shown how to shoot thumbs forward and she kept choking up on the slide so we had to go back to the standard grip for her. That slide lock notch on the left side will tear ya up for sure!

The support hand thumb is a little far forward, but this is the grip that I was taught at police academy. The meaty part of palms should be touching, therefore will bring that thumb back a little.

I did... it didn't show that method.

Certainly a different technique than I have ever seen..but it must work if it is being used in competition.

I shoot IPSC standard gun, but I've seen it used at all levels including the police and private security.

The grip showed here is not the ideal, his resting his left thumb on the laser mount not the the frame. I think he might be adjusting his grip to properly activate the grip safety, not everybody's hands will accommodate a 1911 either. it works great on glocks and M&P's though, not so well on some sigs. Feels funny when you first try it, but it does negate the supporting hand twisting the sights out of line. Its kinda like the back focus button, works for some....

Nice series. The processing works really well with the images. Were you using actions or did you do that in PS manually?

Thanks. I used an action for the color tone but the rest was all manual.

It's pretty obvious who on this thread knows shooting and who doesn't. The grips used and shooting level have all been discussed.

Its not surpressed. Its an actual H&K MP5 A5. They come from the factory with the mock suppressor to hide the long 16.1" barrel that's required to make it legal without an SBR Tax Stamp.

I know he is big in the 3 gun competitions, sponsored by Larue Tactical I believe. And he does ISPC as well if I recall correctly.

The stock on the 10/22 is a Boyd's SS Evolution. Granted she isn't shooting it properly but it is an amazing race gun stock! That is a pretty new purchase and is getting a PWS carbon tension barrel soon to really liven it up!

Its a pretty standard competition grip. The only thing I have heard it referred to is a "thumbs out" grip.

Here is a video of Todd Jarrett instructing on it. (He holds like 4 world shooting titles)

Shooting and grips. No pun intended, right? LOL!

I love the whole set, btw.

Love the shots, makes me want to get to the range. I'd personally be afraid of the slide biting me to hold it like #7.

You should watch the video I posted and try it. It feels a little odd at first but it gives you sloop much more control over the gun and quicker aim!
