Great 1911 Grip tutorial



For the 1911 newbs, this is a great video explaining the preferred grip.


Check out the instructor's skills.

Not bad performance for a 100 year old design!

Solid post! AFI puts out some good instructional vids. Overall this is pretty basic, but it's still great reinforcement.

Basic for those that have been shooting 1911s for awhile but I've noticed quite bit of 1911 newb interest lately and thought the video was relevant good info. The high thumb on the safety grip isn't intuitive, esp ially coming from non SAO pistols like a glock/sig/beretta

Good point. Much of what's in here is second nature to me. The only thing I kind of disagree with is their stance presentation (iso vs weaver), but this vid is geared towards IPSC competitors vs a tactical audience anyway. Funny coincidence as I was shooting a 1911 at an IPSC match last night!

Based on my USMC CQB training, I'd agree with the vid the Isoceles as a preferred stance for anumber of reasons in a real world situation. We were taught both for qual purposes but weaver was pretty useless in any of our excercises.
