In this episode, John Holschen of InSights Training Center talks to us about the characteristics of the “handgun grip.”


  1. How do you hold your piztil like that when the slide cycles in the military I saw a few folls try that ended with thumb ripped open

  2. Gary,
    I shot about 8000 rounds with that grip last year, down from the >15K I ran for quite a few years. No malfunctions (other than a couple ammo related) and no problems with my thumbs. 🙂

    By the way my thumb position is in no way unique. Look at videos of many of the top shooters and you will see the same or very similar thumb position.

    Stay ready,
    John Holschen
