    Again, Chris has nailed it! Once a year I spend 30 minutes with a QUALIFIED instructor to go over all the bad habits I picked up from the previous year. It really helps me to have someone who knows what to look for point out the little things I don't do well. Just bad habits I may have fallen into. Just my opinion. I could be wrong.

    That sounds like a great idea. I probably need to spend about 3 hours with a qualified instructor instead of 30minutes. Maybe we could enlist Chris to be a traveling instructor. I've never had a lesson in my life. I suppose my shooting proves that. I appreciate Chris' tips.

    Denny and DW:

    Thanks for the vote of confidence, but no, I will not be offering any in-person instruction! I am just one of a dozen people at my club who help out with this program, and I am an amateur volunteer: I do this because I enjoy it.

    However, if you look over in the Training and Tactics forum next week, you will see some more material. I am planning the following posts:

    1) Beginning Action Shooter: The Grip (this will be a re-post of the material on the grip, with at least one more photo showing the trigger pull).
    2) Beginning Action Shooter: The Stance
    3) Beginning Action Shooter: The Draw
    4) Beginning Action Shooter: Speed Reloading

    The guy who heads up the Action Shooting discipline at my gun club will be the subject of the photos, which I plan to shoot this Friday while we are conducting an Action Range Certification class. The photos will be annotated with explanations of how we teach the Grip, Stance, Draw, and Speed Reloading and why we do it that way. Again, this is aimed at the beginning shooter. I think these planned posts might bring some good discussions.

    I am resisting the temptation to go "whole hog", so we will not be covering sight alignment, equipment selection, and other topics that are covered in the NRA Basic Pistol course.

    Stay tuned, this will be a fun project.

    Chris

    Chris I enjoy all of your post here and also they are very informative. Being an LE for 31 years, now retired, and an active target shooter we quickly forget the basics and need that reminder from a person like you to get our heads back into the game....I mostly shoot center mass Q targets where grouping tightly is not as important, but after reading these articles I'm going back to shooting circles for a while to tighten up my groups and to practice proper grip and sight alignment a little more. Thanks for keeping us all thinking....

    DW,

    No, I meant part of Glock.Pro: Training & Tactics

    That's where I will put the other information. Stay tuned!

    Dan,

    Thanks for the kind words. I want to make it clear that the training we conduct is intended for real beginners, many of whom bring the first handgun they have ever owned to the class. That is our raw material.

    Seasoned LE Professionals such as yourself, or experienced competitors, probably already have skills development well beyond what we cover. While I'm happy to hear that the material is useful as a refresher, I want to be careful to point out that I am offering beginner material, chosen for our purposes. I don't want to be seen as contradicting other training or methods, I'm sure they all have adherents and were developed for a good reason. An example of a difference is the Weaver stance: we don't teach that, and we don't advocate it for beginners in action shooting.

    The goal of our training is to teach beginners enough about safety, proper gun handling, and safety (again...) so that they can use our Action Ranges without supervision, and so that they will be able to enter a USPSA/IPSC, Speed Steel, or IDPA match and not embarrass themselves...safely.

    Stay tuned, I plan to post up more beginner material in Training & Tactics within a few days.

    Chris

    Ooooops! I thought you meant another forum. Sorry. Well, I wouldn't say I'm a beginner and I pretty well think I've got the safety issue down but in truth I'd most probably benefit from all the other beginner stuff. I've never had a lesson in my life in how to shoot a handgun. I just picked one up years ago a started shooting. It's only been in the last year + that I've been back actively shooting a lot. Of course I was around firearms in the military but it was M-1, M-14 and M-16. So no handgun training there. There's so many different ways to "learn" to shoot. When I picked up my first Glock it surprised me. I even surprised me. It is an extremely accurate pistol even for a novice. So, I still think I could benefit by all you post and will avail myself of it. All I'm trying to do is have fun in retirement and feel as if I'm proficient in protecting me and mine from all the BGs. And, believe me, we've got'em in spades where I live.

    Chris - another excellent post... Thanks for taking the time to write it and get all the pictures together... I added "How to Grip a Glock Pistol" to the title of this message and stuck it to the top of the page...

    Just noticed that you are going to post this and a few other articles in the "Training and Tactics" forum... Good idea, much better place... I'll stick those to the top of the page once you create them and return this post to its original status...
