    Gripping the snub revolver

    A lot of people ask me about how to grip the snub revolver, so I wrote an article about it.

    The proper grip for a small revolver is somewhat different than for an autoloading pistol. This is dictated by the different shape of the revolvers stocks and by the difference in mechanical operations between the revolver and autoloader.

    With a revolver, the grip that works best for most people is known as the ‘thumbs down grip.’ A few shooters may need to modify it to best fit their hands.
    Link to full article.



    Here's some video of me shooting one at speed.

    That'll work. I put week thumb over back strap though when shooting my LCR. It's thumb over thumb for everything else including autos.
    There is a solution but we are not Jedi... not yet.

    I'm assuming the blue painter's tape is to signify a training gun and not some newfangled fad?

    Great shooting, looks like he needs to pick up a little speed on reloading though.
