Anyone using grip strengthing tools like Captains of Crush grippers or similar equipment to improve their grip strength? I just ordered few... Trainer, No. 1, & No. 2. I've always had reasonable grip strength from lifting but have never really done any dedicated grip training. I remember reading an article by Ron Avery in Front Sight a while back, and when I trained with Bob Vogel he brought a couple of CoC grippers along a said he thought they really improved his grip. Obviously good grip technique will trump raw grip strength, but there are plenty of GM's on both sides of the fence about overall grip pressure. The finer points of strong/support side balance and trigger finger dexterity aside there is the "just enough pressure, but no more than necessary" crowd, and the "crush the fuck out of it" crowd. I am far from a GM but I am definitely trending towards the "crush the fuck out it" crowd. Generally speaking if my hand placement is good then the tighter I grip the flatter the recoil and more consistent the sight tracking is.
