When the zombies break through your outer defenses and are bearing down on you by the dozens you want to be head shot accurate. To do this you need to train, and train a lot. The most effective technique to ensure consistent accuracy, sight alignment, recoil, etc is your grip. Trigger control is next but not as important as your grip. You can have perfect trigger control but with a crappy grip we’ll all give you the nickname of “shotgun”. The following article describes the grip used by almost all competitive shooters and special forces soldiers including the famed navy seals.

It’s a difficult grip to re-train yourself into if you learned wrong but worth the time to learn and employ. I’ll be honest, it’ll feel awkward as hell for a while. The best way to re-train yourself is to get a magazines worth of snap caps and draw, aim, shoot, rack, re-holster, repeat. Do this thousands of times. It’ll take this long to re-train yourself. While doing this you should also be working on proper stances and proper trigger control. Also, don’t rack the slide every time which might lead to you developing a “muscle memory” to rack after every shot. That would be, as George Orwell says “doubleplusungood”. Also supplement with genuine live fire “range time” be it in your backyard (if possible), the range or the forest (safe practices of course). This way you won’t develop that muscle memory.

When all is said and done and the zombies are almost on top of you you’ll be dropping them with single, well placed head shots to the ocular window because you took the time to train correctly. Isn’t that what preparedness is all about anyways?
