Right next to the moving slide and ejection port that spitting hot brass and gasses out at 100mph. Good luck
    I’m assuming you don’t have thumbs. There’s 2 sides to every slide. You’re showing you didn’t see the video. ;)

    Yes i have thumbs, do you keep yours that close to the slide? Yes i did watch the video. In the beginning when you were gripping the gun your thumb was straight well away from the slide where its supposed to be and in the end you angled it up just to say they are the same distance as your other finger. About 30 years ago i actually knew a guy who shot handguns and taught safety courses who shot with his middle finger. he was missing his pointer finger though. You can shoot however you want, I'm just pointing out the dangers of doing so.

    Oh and i hope you aren't intending to try and shoot a revolver that way too.

    Yep. That's why I was talking about this shield in general and me. My thumbs are on the takedown lever and slide stop. Directly across from my finger on the other side. That's why I was saying it works great for me. This is regardless of which finger I tried to shoot with, that's just how the shield fits me. Also, as I said in the video I haven't shot the alternate way but about ten times. I just noticed that it did actually feel more solid and controlled for some odd reason. I think it really does feel better single handed because you need as much leverage as possible. After my elbow surgery I may find it easier to shoot one handed. Until then this helps a lot, but again I never tried it exclusively. I really just wanted a less painful way to practice one handed. Tendinitis coupled with a bone spur is a hell of a combination to try and hold something up - steady - and squeeze. Changing which tendon is pulling did actually make a huge difference.

    In many cases, we shoot the way it works for us. Some people close an eye when they shoot and the both-eyes-open crowd goes bananas over it.

    I was at a shotgun match one day and there was a guy who's hand had been mangled in some sort of accident. He'd had a special glove made with velcro and the matching velcro on the stock of his shotgun. He was using his ring finger to pull the trigger. He was an excellent shooter, having established a new routine and having practiced relentlessly until he could shoot again. Wish I could remember his name.
