TOMASIE'S TIPS

THE RIGHT GRIP FOR A 1911

Tips on the proper Model 1911 pistol grip by world-champion, Travis Tomasie.

Some common mistakes made by shooters:

  1. Firing hand isn't high enough on the gun
  2. Bad geometry of the support hand

Five pointers on proper grip for maximum control:

  • Proper geometry of the support hand is key. Make sure all fingers are together, wrapped around firing hand and making contact with the trigger guard.
  • Maximum contact with the palm of support hand and grip. The more skin on gun, the better recoil management you will have.
  • Rotate support hand wrist forward, so that left thumb points at target. This locks all tendons in place.
  • Make sure your hands are as high as you can get them.
  • The goal is to get hands as close to the barrel as you can. The higher your hand, the less muzzle flip.
