Getting the Right Grip!

Stephen Powell here with The GunLife Coach!

Today we’re going to be talking about getting a grip! Now, I know what you might be thinking … BORING, I know how to handle it! Whether you learned Push, Pull, Cup & Saucer, 60/40, 70/30, Firm handshake, Gorilla Grip, “Straight outta Compton,” or One Handed, it’s important to have a great grip!

I’ll give you my take on what I’ve passed down to thousands of students, over the years, from all walks of life, from Special Operations, and Law Enforcement to the educated armed citizen. 

KEEP YOUR GUN IN YOUR GUN HAND

Keep your gun in your gun hand!!  and hold on to your smoke wagon with as much strength as required to control it. I don’t care if you think you’re strong of not, Often times, it doesn’t matter that you’re an able bodied athletic type and hit the gym running a gun, Why? Because I’ve seen what works for most is a combination of the gun you chose, the amount of recoil you can manage and the grip strength technique to accomplish the task. Basically, it’s up to you and your abilities. 

FIRST FIRM FIRING GRIP

First Firm Firing Grip! The reason I teach this is crucial. You want to have the best grip of your gun initially, typically we are drawing if from a holster, whether it’s exposed or deep concealed! Once we pick up that pocket rocket, we’re going to work with it! When we use the “F.F.F.G.” technique, we are mitigating our risk of re-gripping the gun. This causes a number or issues. Re-Gripping can cause unbalanced pressure around the gun, not helping us with keeping our gun pointed in the right direction and hampering our recoil management to name a few. This all costs us time; which we don’t have a lot of when under combat or competition pressure.

Sidenote: I’ve made it a habit not to judge a book by it’s cover or a shooter by the gun they choose! I’ve seen smaller shooters handle a .357 or a .45 with class! Bottom line.. If you can’t manage recoil or even hold the gun long enough to get a sight picture, ya might want to explore other options!  Make the gun fit you, as much as possible.

AMMO IN THE OTHER HAND

Ammo in the other hand. Use your non-dominant hand to manage your ammo! I like to say, Gun in one hand ammo in the other! I know some people get their left and rights mixed up at times and under pressure this happens. Scientifically there are two things going on: “Bilateral Symmetry & Tache Psyche Syndrome”. That’s why we want to establish  correct continuous repetitions for success! Consistency breeds Success.

TWO THUMBS TOWARD TARGET

Two Thumbs Toward Target!  When placing your support hand on the gun keep your thumb along the side of the frame and pointed toward the target as much as possible. This will help you in a number of ways. 1. by keeping your wrist straight to mitigate any limp wristing, 2. helping control recoil and regrouping issues while firing 3. also by helping with body alignment target acquisition for close quarter scenarios. 

GUNLIFE TIP

“Ya know understanding how to handle your grip on your gun is just like life! If you’re going to tackle something new or try to make your mark in the world; ya better know how to handle it, get a grip on it and don’t let go until you hit your goals!” ~SD Powell

That’s all I got for you today! STAY TUNED MORE TO COME!

Guinness World Record for U.S. Presidential Lies

Lies are sometimes necessary, but some are gross manipulations of reality

In its non-stop attempt to portray Donald Trump as the most despicable person ever, the Left slanders him daily in ways unprecedented in American history. If Trump makes an exaggeration, which he is prone to do, he’s called a liar. In office, when Trump achieved anything of note, the Left cherry-picked minor aspects that could be criticized and elevated beyond their stature.

Those on the Right recognize the deeper, universal truths that Trump espouses. Hence, they attend his rallies by the tens of thousands. Hardly anyone is eager to attend a Joe Biden rally. Why?

All Built on Lies

Joe Biden, beyond his word salad bumbling, is an incredible liar, covering for Barack Obama, his master. Virtually everything that Biden and his press secretary say is a lie. Unsurprisingly, public confidence in the presidency and today’s sycophant journalism is at an all-time low.

His agency heads consistently lie: Merrick Garland, Alejandro Mayorkas, Christopher Wray, Pete Buttigieg, and Antony Blinken, among many others. Take your pick.

The precedent for the Biden Administration’s lies is the administration of Barack Obama, for whom Biden served as vice president. Obama taught Biden the best of lying techniques.

To Lie and To Swerve

Lies are sometimes necessary, but some are gross manipulations of reality. A brief look at presidential lies since 1968 puts Obama’s lies in context.

LBJ said that none of our boys would die in foreign soil, and 54,000 Americans died in Vietnam. Nixon made many statements, most memorably, “I’m not a crook,” yet he sought to steal the private records of enemies and was exposed by the Watergate scandal.

George Bush senior said, “Read my lips, no new taxes.” Then in office, he raised taxes which, rolling over in his grave, he likely regrets. Bill Clinton told so many lies, you’d need a book to catalog them all. Among his most famous is “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.”

George W. Bush, faultily advised, made concerning statements about Iraq. Barack Obama, Joe Biden’s handler, said he’d have the most transparent administration in history. Alas, his was the most secretive: spying on enemies, journalists, political opponents, and everyday American citizens.

The Grand Wizard of Big Lies

Obama touted that he’d restore trust in government. Instead, he opened the doors to the opposite. Obama said the stimulus will fund shovel-ready jobs. It did not. He said, “I am focused like a laser on creating jobs.” The jobs he created were low-wage and low-level. Obama told hardworking entrepreneurs, “You didn’t build that,” which offended business owners everywhere.

Obama weaponized federal agencies to persecute and prosecute Conservatives, so it was hardly a transparent administration. He insisted the IRS was not targeting anyone, but under his henchwoman, Lois Learner, the IRS targeted the Tea Party and Conservatives in general. Lerner’s department harassed, intimidated, and fined them, and diminished their impact on voters in the 2012 election.

Obama proclaimed that a spontaneous riot based on a movie sparked the attack on the Benghazi consulate, which he knew was completely untrue. The attack was well coordinated and planned in advance.

No Stopping Him

Obama announced that the public will have five days to review every bill which lands on his desk. Then, he hustled through some of the most expensive boondoggles in U.S. history. With the introduction of Obamacare, Obama said that you can keep your family doctor and that premiums will be lowered by $2,500. This was utterly false.

Obama stated that whistleblowers would be protected in his administration. Then, he offered no protection. Obama said we’ll get back every dime we use to rescue the banks and auto companies, with interest. This did not happen.

He emphasized that, if elected, he would end the war in Iraq and Afghanistan within nine months. He did not. He claimed he would close Guantanamo within six months. It did not happen. He claimed ignorance about the “fast and furious” gun-running scheme to arm Mexican drug cartels. He knew. Obama proclaimed that he would bridge the gap between black and white Americans. Actually, he increased it in ways that set racial relations back 50 years.

The Biggest Lie of All

The biggest lie that Obama ever uttered occurred on January 20th, 2009, when he said, “I, Barack Hussein Obama, pledge to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States of America.” Twelve years later, Biden did the same.
