Some great information from you all.. thanks.
I had a conversation at work with a few folks about this last week.
One thing that was brought up was that the "old schoolers" probably did most of their shooting with revolvers instead of semi-autos (
not necessarily so). Revolver technique is *apparently* a little different because "limp wristing" is not really an issue with a revolver. I.e., you can do as the old schoolers say and just guide the pistol. For semi-autos you need to keep a firmer grip or FTEs could occur. There was some debate on whether anything above a 9mm could cause "limp wrist" FTE.
