Handgun Grip & Stance for Marksmanship

Long before James Bond drew a gun, pointed it, and shot the bad guy squarely in the chest… He had to develop his form. Grip and stance are the most important things to know about with any type of gun. Your grip keeps you safe and on-target.

Gun Review: Glock 42 .380

Some say, “hideable handguns aren’t fun to shoot.” There certainly has been a trend to buying small concealable pistols and revolvers.
