I bet that this can't be done under even the best circumstances. 1911s are built pretty tight, unlike a Glock which you can see daylight through.

I don't know crap on the design of a 1911, but what is that pin for? I just love it when people have to throw Glock into a conversation when it is not about a comparison.

It secures the barrel link that secures the barrel for starters -
Ditto on the freekin Glocks- a hipunk will come round next

That "pin" is actually the other end of the slide stop. It goes all the way through the frame and actually engages the barrel link too. Like everyone else here, I've also never heard of this being an issue. And personally, I want more than just two fingers wrapped around the grip myself, on ANY gun. I've tried the point method, and personally, I can't pull a damn trigger with my Birdie. Not without severe loss of accuracy, even with this "superior" method of self defense marksmanship.

There is also the mater of ergonomics. The Russian pistol has poor ergonomics (grip angle) and requires the finger to be pointed because it does not point naturally. The 1911 grip angle is "ideal" as it allows for a natural point. It does not require the index finger to lay along side of the frame. A lot of the mouse guns with their short grips would be better served with the finger along side the frame and the middle finger on the trigger. This requires a new training regimen. Personally I never buy a gun that does not point naturally. One more thing, your grip should not be so tight that you are able to push out that pin or that pin is dangerously loose.

Don't know how the orginator of the film had been taught to shoot, but evidently nobody explained to him what the finger next to the thumb was called,: The index finger, (also referred to as forefinger, pointer finger, trigger finger, digitus secundus, or digitus II), is the first finger and the second digit of a human hand. Its anatomical names are either index finger or second digit.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Index_finger

Please notice that word 'trigger finger' is in there for a reason. Some people are just plain stupid!

Yep, that is why I ground my slide stop to be flush with frame.

In my 40+ years, I've never seen such happen.

Stirring a cow patty?
