    Thanks. I was hoping more members would get some use out of this video. I did.

    Good video. I can't wait to get to the range and try what I learned. I think the basic stance and grip would work for all types of shooting and firearms.

    Mike I've heard you talk about the thumb over grip and it's positive impacts, this vid helps a newcomer like me understand it a whole lot more clearly. Thanks for posting.

    Noted this and tried it after seeing the MagPul Dynamics "Art of the Dynamic Carbine" video. I like how these guy's explain the physics of recoil and how the forward grip helps.

    I'm not a rifle guy and I'm a fairly new shooter, less than a year at age 57. But I like the discussion about moving weight forward.

    I shoot a 9mm pistol, so at 200 lb I should outweigh the recoil. But the scatter in my groups suggests that isn't happening.

    My son suggested that I take a more aggressive, forward stance ("nose over toes"). Doing so automatically bunched up my chest and locked my arms and neck together behind the gun.

    At 57, my sight picture wanders a bit more than you young guys, but with this stance adjustment my wandering is about half to three-quarters of what it was. Doesn't sound like much, but even three-quarters of the wander represents about half the area covered. That's going to mean a lot tighter groups.

    Great video! Thanks!

    Balota, if you really want some good instruction you are in the right place. I've heard great things about a training group in Tulsa.

    Thanks Mike! I'll check out TDSATulsa. I've had one marksmanship class, but it was the first time I'd ever touched a gun. No draw training. Also have my CCW, so I don't need that course. Probably start with the basic marksmanship class and work up from there.
