LE 1:5 Diagnosing and Fundamentals: Grip and Stance
From a law enforcement perspective grip is critical. Not only do you have to grip the gun to retain the gun in a positive control but you must have a grip which allows you to present for firing on a threat putting you or another in an eminent threat of death or serious bodily harm.
One key element to grip is to prevent recoil, to have a pressure point in the upper rearward part of the grip and the forward lower portion. When you grip a gun you are high up on the back strap with keeping the index finger in the high slide position. In the left hand portion (for right hand shooter) there is a slight gap between the base of the thumb and the grip to feel it with your support hand.
The support hand thumb will basically be pointed along the frame and the strong hand thumb loosely rests on this support thumb.
There is a lot of different stances out there but the **** stance is generally preferred for a law enforcement perspective. In general, our body armor is faced toward the threat (although side panels are now available) but it is a natural reaction to present the arms out in a direct manner towards a threat. In general both arms are substantially straight or slightly bent but allows a lot of versatility in transitioning to the left and right and also allows movement. Rename this drill please.
