Taran Tactical shooting tip: high combat grip (VIDEO)

Triple crown USPSA three-gun champion Taran Butler, of Taran Tactical Innovations, recently shared with Guns.com a few of his shooting tips to help improve your game.

According to Butler, the grip has improved drastically over the years. He recalled how in the eighties people were locking their arms and using a weaver stance when they shot as well as a few other defunct techniques.

Most shooters now use the combat grip, currently regarded as the correct grip for semi-automatic handguns. This grip features both thumbs riding the slide.

What Butler suggests is that shooters move their thumbs even higher on the slide and extend them forwards. “That really does make the double taps get even closer together,” he said.
