    This video caused me to check my regular grip on a Glock and the position of my left hand. it is what I have been doing, For me, the difficulty with Glocks is the blockiness of the grip and getting my right hand wrapped around the neck of the grip to position my trigger finger while still keeping my wrist straight. I do it all correctly, but the position of my hands is very different than it is on other frames, eg, CZ75 and 1911type pistols. I like my 34, but it’s definitely for someone with bigger hands.

    You’re not a tacticool ninja if you don’t thumbrape the slide. What a joke. And then morons like this gripe when the slide won’t lick back on an empty mag (or other malfunctions occur). Been shooting straight and shooting fast with my hands down on the grips of all my pistols. I guess they have to push something on the mindless masses to make a buck…

      I bet this guy shoots way better than your fat blowhard ass. Thumbs forward isn’t some new concept – it’s tactically sound and proven to work better. Now go back to teacupping or whatever you do when shooting bullseye.

    So.. great pro tip for new shooters interested in glocks. But… How about coupling that with clearing the gun before handling it? Like most apparently “non-pro” shooters do.

    Why is it that “pros” are usually the ones to skip the attention to detail part of firearms handling?

    Experts train until they get it right, professionals train until they CAN’T get it wrong.

      Bedcause, it was a 2 minute video, not a 3 minute video… At shot show… And… it was FREE…. sooo why complain, really. He wasn’t wearing eye and ear protection either, does that bother you?

      Dude, when you can even come close to touching an instructor with the skill and reputation of Shane, maybe we won’t make fun of your comment…

      Best wishes,
      Four guys bored at work wondering if you wear velcro shoes…

        Haha I won’t bother with whatever that instructor comment was.

        There is no excuse for a lack of attention to detail. Especially with someone who is an “instructor”.

        My Velcro shoes fit fine also.

        Also, if you can’t clear a gun in under a minute you should probably just go ahead and find a new hobby.

    Great if you have Sasquatch size hands. Glocks do not fit folks with small hands. How about a replaceable Backstrap Glock like the rest of the handgun world has.

      Glocks with replaceable backstraps? Check out the Gen 4 Glocks. They just came out with them……… like 10 years ago!!!!

      • Ron February 15, 2019, 10:35 am

        Don’t the replaceable Glock backstaps only make the grip larger than without them? How is that beneficial for those with smaller hands?

      Maybe try out the new single stacks?? I have never felt the need for so many bullets in a gun in my life as do the crowds of today. I worked law enforcement with a 6-shooter.

    That was a lot of help explaining how to hold the Glock pistol to all shooters it shows everyone the proper hold and hand placement! Thank You it will be so helpful to all CCDW Students how to practice with correct hold before going to range to shoot and practice to get into the repetitive motion before maybe actually needing it in real life situation !!!! Thanks again Joe
