Re: Proper Grip
UncleFudd that is almost the exact grip I learned nearly 20 years ago. Except the left hand thumb depresses the right hand thumb down and the left hand pointer finger pulls tight into the right hand middle finger. As a teen shooting competition I tried hard to adjust to left hand pointer finger indexing down the slide and tried same finger pulling tight across front of triggerguard, but that original grip I learned prevailed...and still holding into a long Army career.
One thing I will tell any shooter is to constantly enforce a habit of getting the highest grip possible....both with sidearms or longarms with pistol grips.
Never say die!
