I have found in dry fire practice that I can keep the muzzle more stable if I slide my firing hand (right hand) as far up the grip as possible, and putting my right thumb on top of the left side safety lever (next to the slide). I'd also imagine the higher grip would help control recoil a little better. Downsides are as follows: 1) The slide serrations could abraise the inside of my firing thumb. Minimally, this would be a negative distraction. At worst, however, it could tear my thumb open and prevent successful shooting at all! 2) During recoil, as the muzzle flips upward, my thumb could press downward on the safety lever, decocking the hammer. The decocker is pretty hard to press, but I figure the greater intensity with which I'd be holding onto the gun, opposed by the rotational motion of the pistol during the recoil, could be enough to decock the gun. The bad about this is not only would my next shot be completely messed up due to the DA trigger pull, but I would have to consciously lift my finger out far enough to reset the longer stigger pull. 3) Because the tip of my thumb would actually rest on the top of the slide release lever, I would most likely lose last-round hold-open. I'd take pics but I have to head to work now. But what do you guys think about this? Worth a try? Not a bad idea? Dangerous? Thanks!
