I am a fairly new shooter and was taught to grip the pistol with my right hand as high up on the grip as possible and then to wrap my left hand filling the gap between my palm and fingers with my left thumb along the barrel of the gun pointing forward and my right thumb parallel behind it. Recently I have seen people gripping the weapon with the left thumb on top of the right thumb pointing almost straight up. I was wondering if anyone uses that second method and if they find it works better than the first. All comments and suggestions are welcomed. Thanks.
