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!

Hey Liz Cheney, And Other RINOs, Here’s the Truth!

Liz Cheney and RINOs are out of their minds to believe that Trump hurt the party!

Published

RINOs like Liz Cheney and others constantly make the argument that Donald Trump has broken the Republican Party and driven people out of the party. But that is so far from the truth it’s incomprehensible that they even say it. PolitiCrossing founder, Chris Widener, one of the world’s top motivational speakers, makes the case against them in his brand new video. Check it out below and then let us know what you think!

How Every Conservative Can Be a Better Writer – and Why they Should!

Your voice MUST be heard. It is all hands on deck time. One of the ways to do that is to write.

Published

on

We live in the most communicative age in the history of the world. Never before in human history has a single individual had a level playing field that allows them to reach as many people as a major newspaper. In fact, when I owned Positively Republican on Facebook, I was living in Seattle. I had a million people on my facebook page and every time I posted I was reaching hundreds of thousands of people. I ended up once at a party with the CFO of the Seattle Times. Their daily reach was 250,000 people. Mine was millions. I asked him how it felt t know that a guy on the Eastside was reaching four times as many people as the Times was, and I was doing it from my home office! He didn’t like that much!

Conservatives need to take advantage of that. Your voice MUST be heard. It is all hands on deck time. One of the ways to do that is to write. It may be a social media post, an article or a book. I have written hundreds of articles and twenty books that have been translated into 14 languages and have sold millions of copies. I have it down pretty well. I would like to share three key points that will make you a better writer, even if just for your Facebook posts where you are trying to influence your friend group. If every person got better and we all influenced ten people, it would change our country for the better!

Here are some quick thoughts:

1. Start with a goal. What do you want to accomplish with your writing? What do you hope to happen when they are done reading? Is it to confront, to educate, or to comfort and encourage? For example, I have two goals with this article. One, to give you some tips for being a more effective communicator so you can have more influence. Two, at the end of the article, after giving value, I am going to ask you if you have ever written or if you think you have what it takes to write for us, PolitiCrossing.

2. Pick three to four main points. Notice how many points I have in this article? Four. Why? People don’t spend a lot of time reading anymore. If I can make it compelling in three or four points, I can get them to read it and to take the actions I want them to take.

3. Make it concise and clear. Get to the point. Don’t go on and on. And make it clear so they don’t ask, “What is he talking about?”

4. Write it, then rewrite it, then edit. I look at all my posts a few times. What words can I change to be more clear? What words can I take out to make it more concise? Make it tight and powerful. Then look for misspellings, grammar, etc.

Now, I told you I was going to do it, so here we go: Think you have what it takes to write for us? Want a platform to reach thousands of people every time you write? PolitiCrossing can help you do it! If you are interested, contact us at [email protected]

Let’s ALL become better. Communication moves people and influences them. The better we conservatives can do this, the better our country becomes!
