Default CZ Trigger Guard

Sorry for the huge picture. What's the point of the shape of the trigger guard on CZ pistols like the one below. Is it for the off hand to grip? punching with? what?

Some people use the serrated area for the index finger of the support hand. I do not teach that hold, but watch the people at the range and see how many use it.

I believe the flat, serrated edge is for bracing against a support (door frame, counter top, etc) during combat situations...helping to keep it steadily fixed on a target, potentially from behind some level of cover.

I believe it was to help with the support hand index finger on the trigger guard grip that was popular a while back. (and still is used by some as Dan pointed out)

"Back in the late 1970s and early 1980s in IPSC competition, there were certain accepted ways to do things: the Weaver stance, for one. And the way we gripped the gun was what a lot of people call the Gunsite technique, where you've got your right thumb on top of the safety, and your left thumb comes up over that. Also back then, it was considered very smart to curl your left index finger around the front of the triggerguard."---Brian Enos quote from The Combat Handgun Grip
