On how to grip the 1911…or really any other pistol.
Your grip and stance make an amazing difference on how the recoil of the gun feels, and you can handle some pretty scary guns if your form is good.
I’ve shot some brick-splitter handguns, from .454 Casull to .500 Magnums loaded hot, to Jay’s Snubbie From Hell. A good solid grip and an aggressive shooting stance keeps pain to a minimum and allows you to effectively utilize some pretty heavy artillery!
Couple this with a moderate recoiling gun and you just gain gobs of control and fast follow-up shots. A great lesson!
