    there was a thread a while back that had a video that showed how lena miculek holds a pistol. i thought that was cool and tried to adopt the grip. well, it didn't work out too well. my support hand would keep coming off the gun during recoil no matter how hard i gripped with my weak hand.

    fast forward to today and i watched another lena miculek video: . this time she explained a bit more about her grip and the light bulb went off. her fingers "hook" the trigger guard and "wedge" the left hand against the right. my analogy is my weak hand is trying to pry the gun out of my strong hand as my strong hand is trying to pry the gun out of my weak hand. however it is explained, i finally understand the concept and can see how this grip will keep the gun from recoiling. i can only get one finger on the trigger guard, but still get my hand real high up on the frame and can still pry the gun.

    as soon as my range opens up, i'm going to try this grip as it works well when i dry-fire. i have always had problems with "noodling" and hope this grip will solve that. live fire is the only way to tell.

    fyi,

    Thanks for posting that. Yet another example that no one single technique is the only right technique for all shooters.

    For 40 years I’ve been shooting with one finger on the front of the trigger guard, which is “wrong” according to all of the modern day experts.

    I don’t care that others don’t like it. I shoot better that way.

    I look forward to trying the Lena grip since I am now an old man that is not getting stronger, especially with my current nerve damage in my fingers and hands.
