    This has probably already been posted here. But is is so important to handling firearms that it is second only to safety. Proper handgun grip.. It is vitally important. So here is a short video demonstrating the proper grip when in urban areas.
    ** WARNING ** Do NOT use this grip outside of urban areas. It would get you mocked, and possibly shot for using it.

    Why does every fool thing they can improve on handgun gripping? I am reading yet another "shoot your handgun" book and of course the author has to push his version of a handgun grip. Although I must admit the "grab your package and hang off a tree" pose used in the video was actually pretty scary.

    Obviously, you didn't watch the vid. Do so, then complain.

    Yes, I did watch the video. The "grab your package and hang from a tree" pose was very impressive too, just as I said. The point I was trying to make is, in every book on handgun shooting in the last 20 years, every author has a "new and improved" grip he pushes. Usually when you check these out you find they were tried back in the 1890's to 1920's era and found lacking. Weaver grip and stance? Go look at some of the 1930's era books where they promote it for combat shooting! Of course the target shooters get all the ink so it fell out of favor as no target shooting games allowed it. I fail to see why every post I publish here is attacked for no known reason and for things I never said. Dare I recommend decaf?

    [pop] I enjoyed the faux training manual. Alas, I've seen that in Detroit twice. I just kept the loud pedal pressed and didn't decide to see it effectiveness.

    I'll answer that here and now. The biggest failure is that you should have said things you didn't, and left the way open for misinterpretation. Cite your sources for things like "7.62x54r never used black powder" and some credibility might accrue. As it is, your statements beg questioning. Where you got that about putting bp pellets in a 303 case and then forming the neck (Barrel Length & Velocity in 7.62x54R | Page 2 post 12) is beyond me, and sounds like pure danger. That was done with cordite sticks, not BP.

    Your belligerent approach and knowitall attitude, along with failing to stick to a subject and starting arguments off topic knows no bounds. Someone is going to jump your bones each and every time you come off with some kind of superior attitude and belittle someone else in any fashion. We don't need irrelevant dissertations on off topic subjects. Decaf? Won't help me in the least. Now, we know your posting privileges have been "curtailed" on at least one other forum for similar things (including unsafe loads) consider that it can happen here as well. The Badministrator is in the wings, and loves the big red button.

    Some of the grip and stance changes have to do with body armor. We went from turn to the side to make a smaller target to face forward to put the armor toward the threat and hide the gap where the armor closes. So some of this was based on tactics not how the gun should be held.

    My favorite stance has to be the classic Marine shooting his .45 circa WWII and before. The Sam Browne belt, the hand behind the back.

    I'm pretty sure you have to demonstrate proficiency in advanced techniques such as the proper angle of a baseball cap worn sideways, (with tag still attached,) while wearing your pants at least 6 inches below your waist, in order to be eligible for a grill...
