I have longer narrow fingers, and wide palms. I have to go to the middle of the knuckle to get a good shot off. If not I have to use a strange grip that does not work well for me. I do what works for me. If somone has a way to try that they think will work better I will try it. If it works I will keep working on it. If not then I stick to doing what works for me. I doubt I would ever do very well in a bull's eye shoot. Though with combat type quick shooting I do well enough.
No matter how many times you do it and nothing happens it only takes something going wrong one time to kill you.
