Took my revolver grip and transferred it to auto pistol. Thumbs lock down on the left side of the pistol, left forefinger is over the shooting hand fingers. Dangling the forefinger on the trigger guard was a big no-no in transition training, to much Miami Vice!

The thumbs forward grip came into being well after I was trained. My experiments w/ it yields it seems more stable, but under pressure of match or quals, I resort to my initial grip from years ago and have quit trying to relearn.

Grip: Thumbs forward, but gun not exactly inline with strong hand. A tad bit of arthritis in strong side wrist forces this.

Stance: Kind of Weavery. More wavery. Also, use bifocals to see sights, so my head is leaning back.

Serious question here---what do you do when you don't have your bifocals?
