| The R9 is
a small gun - intended for pocket use for
most part - and so the grips are small, even
for those with smaller hands. The small size
and mass do in my opinion allow for some problems
in function if adequate grip style is not
A sloppy and loose grip can lead to limp-wristing,
whereby the energy of recoil is passed on
and into the loose hand and arm and dissipated
- robbing energy that is needed for proper
slide operation. I have my own favored method
of holding the gun and it is for me a reliable
method for large hands - maybe a useful way
too for others.
I offer it in the pictures below very much
''as is'' - purely a suggestion and somewhere
to start - based on ''it works for me''!
- placement of the strong hand to begin
aquisition. Have gun backstrap well nestled
into web of hand.
2 - final position of strong hand with
grip established - this is a tight hold
but not to extent that it produces tremors
from over exertion.
3 - weak hand brought in to complete
a two hand hold. I favor a crossed
thumb lock - some prefer the thumbs
parallel. No way tho should anyone
attempt to shoot with weak hand thumb
across rear, where slide may well
remove a sizeable amount of flesh!!
is not meant to definitive - just a
suggestion, for new owners particularly. If anyone has other ideas on grip technique, please share that with us at the board -
