Weekly Training Blog – Get a Grip

BluCore Pistol I is our most popular firearms class.  In this class, we teach the fundamentals of shooting a semi-automatic pistol.  Even though we cover the fundamentals, people of ALL skill levels can benefit from this class.  Even experienced handgun shooters often tell us we teach different and more specific fundamentals than they have had in the past.  Mastering the fundamentals is important because “the best do the basics better!


One of the fundamentals we focus on is grip.  Below are three examples of common grip errors.




In BluCore Pistol I, you will learn BluCore’s preferred grip for shooting a semi-automatic pistol (example below) and how this grip will help with recoil management and consistent shot placement.
