I’m sure you’ve heard this before.
OMG! Look at that huge difference in grip angles! It’s an offense to John Moses Browning(pbuh)!
Look, we all know that the 1911 grip angle is just more “natural.” It just “points better.”
Now, check out this WWII training film about 1911’s called “Combat Firing with Handguns.” (Click the Link to watch)
By the way. Take a look at the top picture again. What do you notice about the front of the grips on both handguns? They are at the same angle.
Shoot what you like. Carry what works. If you are asking my opinion on what gun to buy. Get a Glock 19 and carry it. Don’t like that one? Check out the 9mm Sig P320 in the “Compact” size. Same sized as the G19. Don’t like that one? Try the Smith and Wesson M&P 9 compact. Unless you can carry the full sized, and then get that.
Don’t like any of these? Then you’re just too picky. Is gun, not wife (or husband). It chucks metal downrange at high speed. Save being that picky for the person you choose to marry. That will affect your life far more than your choice of carry gun.
Now go practice. I don’t care how good the gun is, it’s your skill that really matters. And you can practice your way to a very high level of skill. So stop worrying about which gun and start worrying about learning how to use it properly.
