Whenever I bring someone to the range who is new to handguns or guns in general I always try and give them options on ways to properly hold the gun so they can feel more comfortable with handling a small explosion coming from their hands.

Let’s be honest, if it didn’t go boom, we wouldn’t love it so much; but for the beginner, this can be either really cool or really scary.

Proper grip and stance can make all the difference in everything from better accuracy, to recoil mitigation. Proper grip and stance will also help down the road for unconventional positions as well since you will fully understand what happens to your body every time you pull the trigger and where that bullet is going to go.

Stay safe, always check your chambers.
