Mike Seeklander demonstrates how to build a proper handgun grip (courtesy youtube.com)

I’ve seen a lot of firearms training videos. Wilson Combat’s Going Tactical Episode 03 – Mastering The Two-Handed Grip below is about as good as it gets. Gun guru Mike Seeklander offers simple and effective instruction on the deceptively difficult art of holding a handgun. If you learn nothing else from this . . .

Heed his warning not to “under-grip” your gat. Don’t hold it. Grip it. Grip it good.

    • And that’s a bad thing? Are we not men? Don’t you know it’s a wiggly world you blockhead.

      You sound like a Mongoloid.

      I’m sorry. It was a Gut Feeling. Or maybe I had an Uncontrollable Urge.

  1. I’ve always liked his training materials. Generally practical, not too much tacticool.

    Marine combat vet, LEO, federal LEO instructor, competition shooter. I’d call that a pretty well rounded background.

  2. GREAT Video… Mike Seeklander is by far one of the best and a fantastic Teacher!!!

    I was just going over this with my Family last weekend… We’ll be watching this together later today…

    Carry on TTAG!!!

  3. Okay, that was actually quite helpful without being so Gung Ho bark bark that I can’t show it to people new and/or a bit intimidated by firearms and gun culture.

    Anyone have links the next two videos he mentions?

  4. Interesting…

    Never heard of the “counterrotating” grip technique over the push-pull technique. Just grabbed a 1911 out of my safe, it feels… odd.

  5. TOO LONG, DIDN’T WATCH. NOW SUCH WORD AS “IRREGARDLESS” OR “ANYWAYS”. BTW YOU MIGHT WANT TO GET A PROFESSIONAL TO TRIM THAT VAN DYKE, IT’S LOPSIDED.

  6. That was good. However I’ve watched several vids on how to grip your gun and none have ever used the ” cowboy” bullet throw, old western movies show this technique quite often. You grip the gun anyway you can, start with the handgun held parallel to your head and sling the handgun forward while pulling the trigger at the same time, in essence, throwing the bullet at your intended target.
