We welcome you, friends! About how to properly hold a gun, they talk a lot and often wrong. Grip errors abound. We are often asked to show the correct imposition of fingers on the pistol grip. After all, the correct grip is a confident control of the weapon during a shot.
Let’s try to consider the basic rules and errors in the grip. (The article is found on the Internet, translated and supplemented by us).
The basic rules for the correct grip of the pistol grip with fingers. The pistol grip in the pictures. We check the correct grip of the handle.
How to hold a gun. Theory of the correct grip Basic rules for the correct grip of the pistol grip
Pistol grip is usually made of wood. Expensive models of pistols are made with wooden handles only, and inexpensive (often for post rales) made of plastic. We will look at the correct fingers grip on the pistol grip, made for sport shooting,
The handle must be adjustable to adjust the athlete for it. In the outstretched hand with a pistol a certain invisible line should be formed: the eye – the sight, the front sight – the target. Most of the arms have a fungus / stand for keeping the fingers underneath. This fungus also serves to grip the density and adjust the handle to the anthropometric features of the pistol’s hand.
Correct fingers grip (pistol grip): 1. Place the thumb and index finger parallel to the axis of the bore.2. Make sure that these fingers are at the same height, but on different sides of the pistol grip. The palm should fit tightly and wide on the handle, try not to allow sagging and voids.4. The middle joints of the fingers are perpendicular to the axis of the bore, their back side "is looking" on the target. The thumb is used to stabilize the girth. The index finger presses the last phalanx gently and without jerking. The first and second phalanxes of the index finger are not located on the handle of the gun. The first phalanx of the pressure finger lies on the spoke of the descent at 90 ° to the direction of the axis of the trunk. From above, the whole design of the hand-gun should look like a gun is an extension of the outstretched hand.

Put the gun with the center between the thumb and the whole brush, as in the picture
Type of grip from different sides. Pay attention to the average picture: gun – the continuation of the barrel
The correct location of the fingers, wrapping "invisible" pistol grip
Make sure that the thumb and index fingers are at the same height, but on different sides of the pistol grip
Check the correct holding of the handle
Once again, make sure that we hold the gun correctly: The thumb and index finger are parallel to each other on different sides of the handle. The thumb and index finger are along the base of the handle (see the picture with the arrows). The first two phalanges of the index finger do not have contact with the handle. The third phalanx of the index finger, lying on the trigger, may have little contact with the handle. The finger on the trigger (index finger) is naturally bent in the first phalanx at an angle of 90 ° to the axis of the trunk. The middle phalanxes of 4 fingers lie tightly on the handle along its entire length. The middle phalanxes of the middle and ring fingers are strictly under 90 ° to the axis of the trunk and exactly parallel to the target.
The first two phalanges of the index finger do not have contact with the handle. The thumb and index finger are parallel to each other on different sides of the handle
ERRORS when holding the gun, incorrect grip and incorrect positioning of fingers
Common mistakes in the grip of the gun. We look, as it is impossible to do:
Middle phalanxes are not centered. The fingers do not have enough space (the fungus is very high preloaded)
The gun is not a continuation of the hand, and is on the side
Fingers tightly tucked up and plenty of space between the fungus handle and little finger
In this lesson we have dealt with how the athlete pistol pistol holds the pistol with one hand. For many pistol workers, this question sometimes arises and has no solution. But the correct execution of a technically competent shot depends on the grip. Remember: the correct grip of a pistol is a confident control of the weapon, and one of the guarantees of a high-quality shot.
May God grant you health and patience.
