    Jerry Miculek - How to shoot a revolver

    One of the things you find out about me pretty fast on boards like this is that I don't believe that anyone who can run a semi-auto pistol should be choosing to carry a revolver as a primary EDC handgun. I do recognize, however, that people make that choice. Given that, I want them to be able to run that revolver to the uppermost level of their capability. With that in mind, I came across this excellent video by Miculek about how to run one. The best part of this to me is when he goes over grip and its relationship to recoil management. The other key point I get from this is to make sure you are separating perception from application when considering techniques and tactics.

    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    Jerry's da man!

    I can shoot my GP100 significantly faster accurately than my LCR. There's just so much going on when you move a DA trigger. A lightweight snubbie offers less inertial resistance to the external and internal forces as compared to a heavier gun. Light weight snubs have more tendency to bounce and wiggle during the trigger pull and after ignition. I really like Jerry's thumb over back strap technique for the snubbie.

    Great video. He is one of a kind. What I loved the most about the video is him talking about consistency and how much it means not only to the competition world, but how it pertains to self defense....

    Application is easy with competition shooting because you have solid objective measures (the timer and target scoring areas). Application also is easy with some techniques that lend themselves to some type of objective measurement. However, with tactics you seldom have anything other than perception and opinion as the basis for doing something a certain way. And I submit this is why there is so much tactical diversity out there and very different training approaches.

    If I could run a revolver like that man I'd just sell the pistols I own. I am not amazed by much in this world, but watching him shoot is one of the things that just leaves me dumb founded.

    I'll bet it's smooth as a baby's freshly powdered butt no matter what the pull weight.

    So, what's subjective about 'works' and 'doesn't work'?
