I remember seeing a video many years ago in which the doophus Jeffie Cooper carried on for about 3 minutes that handguns have stocks, not grips, and people that call them grips are ignorant.

You find "handles" on brooms, mops, hammers, and axes. Definitely NOT on guns.

What about the great lanyard/leash controversy? That gets way too little discussion IMHO.

Many years ago revolvers were the most common weapons. It is very common to see the term stock applied to revolver grips by people like Houge and pachmayr. Jeff Cooper never thought folks would start carrying them there new fangled semi auto's made by someone in Europe.

In Jeffiees time Europe was in shambles from WWI & WWII. The Europeans were having a hard manufacturing enough bricks, much less pistols.
