Nice video, thanks for posting it. I didn't find anything on my grip as I've have been working on correcting alot of those problems a while ago, but it's a nice video and I was happy to see him reinforce some of the things I had corrected to. Damn is he fast though, but I feel sorry for guy still.....................................................did you notice how he had to reload, where as a 92FS would have still been on the first maghose

Just playin of course, don't want to get any 1911 lovers panties in a bunch.

Nice video, I gotta get my brother to watch it so he can understand what I've been telling him. The only thing I do differently is my right thumb is not on top of the frame like that becasue it was holding the slide lock mechanism down and not letting lock open. Some of you probably remember that and some of you had the same problem I did. Otherwise, I try and do it pretty much the same way he showed. Thanks to Photoman, and he learned it from Defensive Edge, Sully. And I'll second that it gives more control over any other grip I ever used. (I'm not trying to say I shoot anywhere as good as that guy, just that using those techniques helped me alot)

And yes, isn't it great having all those cartridges in the mag in the Beretta?

actually, after watching that video and remembering what a few others said, I went to the range and tried a different grip than I had been. What I was saying before was my right thumb was high but resting down on the slide stop mechanism. Well dumby me, all I had to do was point my right thumb more vertical, so that it's touching the safety decocker and leave it up there. Problem solved with a better grip than I had been using to avoid keeping my thumb on the slide stop mech. And the little indent in the grip is perfect for it. I guess that's how it was designed to be used. Duh.
