Tight Grip = Accuracy?? - Page 2 Empty Tight Grip = Accuracy??

First topic message reminder :

Hi All,

I was wondering if a really tight grip on a pistol translates to accuracy?  All of the military shooters talk about squeezing the water out of their 1911 when they shoot.  Does this really lead to accuracy over say a firm, but not excessive grip?  I can see from a combat standpoint why one would want have a really tight grip on a pistol (prevent your opponent from striping it from you), but is it really necessary for accuracy?

Best,

Joe

Hello Bruce,

Congratulations on your excellent results.
I must admit to not having fully decided on one way or another.  I've been recovering from an accident back in 2017 that unfortunately involved my shoulder.  One thing that is helpful right now, at least for me, is to practice dry fire beginning with the lightest grip that still allows a steady hold, and add a bit of pressure.  Typically, this is for the middle finger snugged under the grip/triggerguard area. 
But, for as well as you're doing, I will keep that in mind.

Thanks for your help,
Jim

Get well,  that would devastate me. Looks like You have the right framework. Its firmer but not 45 tight. I simply became aware of the amount of flip l was getting and this reduced it. There are the motions before ignition and those afterward. Sympathetic finger action was big.
