How to hold/brace gun/hand when using barricade for support?
PPC starts this week and I've been practicing with my XDm and then more with a ruger mk1. I"m not thrilled with my seated and prone positions but they're coming along. The braced one...not at all. I must be missing something fundamental.
How do you hold and brace yourself? The 9mm kicks so what sorta works with the 22 hurts with the 9mm. With the pole on the right some holds have the brass bouncing off the post. With the pole on my left I'm hitting 4" right and with the pole on the right I'm hitting 4" left with the 9mm.
I've tried about 8 different ways to do this...hand, wrist or arm on the pole. Knuckles on the pole (when shooting on the right). Leaning hard, or barely at all. Nothing seems to work. I'm steady in the hold just way off and inconsistent on hits. I'm as good (or better maybe) without the pole to brace against!
Anyone got a pic or link to a video that would help?
