.40 Caliber Semi Automatic Handgun Training : How to Grip a .40 Caliber Semi Automatic Pistol


Now we are going to talk a little bit about
the grip of a firearm. When you go to grab a firearm providing it’s in a holster, what
you would like is you would like the web of your hand, this part right here of your hand
to be high. This is considered the back strap. You would like your hand to be high, to be
high on the back strap of the firearm and you naturally want to curl the other three
fingers around the side of the firearm like so. It’s always important to always keep your
index finger which pulls the trigger off of the trigger until you are ready to fire or
until you are on target. It is firmly believed by myself and others in the, in the firearms
community that there are no such things as accidents when it comes to firearms. This
gun will never go off unless I pull the trigger manually. So remember, hand high on the back
strap, fingers naturally curled around the grip, finger on the side of the frame. This
is considered a good grip. The thumb on the other hand just comes around and rests upon
the other three fingers that are on opposite sides of the grip. The gun should be held
tightly but not as tightly where the gun starts to shake or you start to get a tingling sensation
in your hand.

  1. Sig Sauer p229 start around $800 but depending on caliber and model they can be even more expensive. I owned a Sig p229 SAS in .40 s&w which came out to a little over $1000

  2. @AmyLeesPetWookiee He didn't show the two handed grip because it's not the primary hand. The two handed style of shooting is basically left to the shooter's personal choice. As an adult, you should be able to think for yourself, his presntation is good. As for the expertvillage comment. It seem's that you made a statement that only you understand.

  3. @AmyLeesPetWookiee If you can't stand expertvillage videos, my advice would be DON'T WATCH. Because apparently you veiwed this one!

  4. Being a cameraman for these instructors is a truly dangerous job, guns being pointed at them. This is the second instructor I have seen point the gun at the camera dude.

  5. Your wrong about the gun will never go off unless you pull the triger, If its a pistol that has a hamer and it gets bumped it can hit the pin hard enought to make it go off
