Oh, it's true. I think those two threads led to more reported posts than anything else outside of full blown religion.

That guy completely fits the "cheerio" assessment.

OK so besides getting caught up in a long distance phone call-I could not manage to even hold my body weight hanging freely on the bar with just my pinkie and ring fingers,and even when I used my thumb.
I regularly do wide grip pull ups with a weight belt and rep my body weight plus a little extra-so its pretty telling that I cant even hold myself up with this grip.
I could do several pullups with my thumb and pointer finger extended and all the rest around the bar.It was,of course,even easier to do pullups with just my pointer finger in the air.
I would say that gripping anything,especially a tool that you may be fighting for your life with,in such a way that compromises the strength of your grip on that tool-your grip integrity-is not good.

But I really dont want to start any arguments.

You can hold and shoot your gun any way you please,its a free country-but you wont see me doing that middle finger on the trigger thing because I know what positive grip strength is and that just aint it.

As a side note-I dont know why it would be a 'fatal flaw' to have the slide stop/extractor pin the way that it is on the 1911,it would seem to rather be more prone to cause you trouble with ANY gun if your not holding it strongly enough to retain it.

More like a 'fatal operator error' than something wrong with the 1911.....and I'm a HP fan,not a 1911 guy at all,so I'm not trying to defend the 1911 here.

But choosing a gun is a personal thing,IMHO,you have alot of makes,calibers,and models to choose from,and if you want one that you can shoot with your big toe,have at it.
