National Carry Academy Weekly Training Video: Surface Area And Grip
Each week we at NationalCarryAcademy.com try to bring our users and the general public additional training videos to improve your training and shooting ability. This week instructor Nick Dahlberg continues his discussion on the importance of a good grip and discusses the topic of surface area.
Hey Guys, Nick here from NCA with another video. In this video we’re gonna continue to talk about grip a little bit more, we’ve talked in the past about hand position, we’ve talked about why we want to get our hands as high as possible and minimize the leverage that the slide has over our hands as it cycles and in this video we’re gonna talk about one of the other key element of grip which is getting some friction between our hands and the gun. There’s different ways of doing this and in the first video, when we talked about hand position, we’ve talked about getting as much surface area contact between our hands and the gun and that being a reason behind that hand position, one of the reason behind that hand position. And so we want to establish as much friction as possible by creating that surface area contact with good hand position. And the other thing that we could do is obviously increase tension a little bit although we don’t want to much tension that can be bad but some tension obviously also increase friction. And then the other thing that we can do is actually change the surface material of the gun itself and create more friction, whether through permanent methods of stippling like this or through things like grip tape.
