In 2009, I came home from a deployment and my oldest son, who was 3 or 4 at the time, wouldn’t eat for almost 2 weeks... Being a father I was obviously concerned, so I asked him about it and his answer really hit me hard… He said, “Dad, if I eat I’ll grow up and if I grow up I’ll become a daddy. And if I become a daddy, I’ll have to leave my family.” My boys barely knew who I was and I couldn’t let them grow up without a father...

I realized at that moment my family needed me a lot more than the Navy needed another SEAL. So I put in for retirement the next day…

Back then I knew I wanted to be with my family more than anything, so I made changes in my life that allowed me to be at home.

We all want more time to spend with the people we love or doing the things we love. That’s why I’m here to help!

Once you read my New Rules of Marksmanship you will learn how you can stay at home, and save time and money while you improve your shooting! I promise this works… try it now: https://chrissajnog.com/newrules/ http://snip.ly/vqtwv4

getting a gun that fits your hands is important, and seldom mentioned in 'proper grip' videos.

Your advice is helping me tremendously! I will do the grip exercises and when I finally make it to go shooting, keeping in mind your sage advice.

That was quite possibly one of the best videos I've watched on proper grip. I'm also so happy you pointed out that trying to get your finger in a specific place on the trigger is incorrect as every shooter is different and having the proper grip will allow your finger to naturally "tell" you where it belongs. Another great video. Thank you. That being said, you offer private lessons at a cost of only $10,500 per day. I snorted and spit my coffee out when I read that on your page. Seriously guy?

It's impossible to have the gun in line with your arm and see down the sights unless you tilt your head way over or have a double jointed elbow.

This information has been very informative as well as a great teaching tool in achieving a more secure grip that works.

Got some range time in front of me, after enough dry fire practice, I can shoot MOA with just about any rifle, not so much with a pistol. This video helped!! Thanks!!

Great lesson and would also appreciate some tips on gripping revolvers - some of us old timers still shoot "wheel guns" too !
