Course Outline

To grip a handgun properly:

  • Grasp the gun under the frame and trigger guard with your support hand. Do not cock the gun, and do not touch the trigger.
  • Open your shooting hand so that your thumb and index finger form a V.
  • Place the V as high on the frame as possible so that the grip of the gun rests firmly in the palm of your shooting hand.
  • Curl your fingers around the gun's grip with your index finger extended along the side of the gun and off the trigger.
