Israelis are turning to an iconic American firearm for their own self defense. There are a number of tricks and techniques involved when it comes to shooting a glock. Hailed as America’s “weapon of choice”, the glock has become the preferred choice of weapon for all genders. However, there are set guidelines and techniques for shooting a glock to get it right. Professional IDF soilders offer tips on how to fire this iconic handgun.
- To begin with, make sure you are calm and composed before attempting to shoot.
- Gripping the glock right is the most crucial part. Hold it as high as you can to have firm control and leverage.
- Position your middle finger beneath the trigger guard in a way that your lower fingers wrap around the grip effortlessly.
- Hold the gun firm with your dominant hand but not so tight that your knuckles turn white. Now, place your other hand over your strong hand for additional support.
- The Glock Shooting Stance is yet another handy technique. If you get this right, you are in for a good shooting experience. Stances vary from person to person, depending on different heights and sizes.
- Use your dominating eye to focus and align your sight.
- The right stance will give you the base you need to absorb the recoil effect. You may have difficulty in finding the stance that suits your frame best, but continue to practice to get more accustomed.
- Instead of pulling the trigger, push it, or rather, squeeze the trigger straight to the rear until it fires.
If you want to develop good trigger control, consider dry firing. It is the practice to firearms without ammunition’s to ensure better aiming and confidence. Pull the trigger and let the hammer drop on a bare chamber. Once you get the art right, treat yourself to some live shooting.
Irrespective of the number of tips for shooting a glock you read, without practice, they won’t help you one bit. Remember, it will take time and patience before you can call yourself a pro at it. The more you practice, the better the chances of your body and muscles to get habituated with the handling of a glock.
Glock handguns come in multiple calibers including .380, 9mm, 10mm, S&W .40, and ACP .45. Glocks are sold in compact, sub compact, and full size frames. The frame/ grip size options are designed to handle different carry applications.
