I'll still give that grip a try next time I'm out at the range. That way I can see how much of these observations are actual issues or just muscle memory trying to tell me it's wrong to hold it that way. I've always gripped my pistols like shown in the pics above. Most of my pistols have been Beretta 92's. They fit my palm very good and it's the side arm we use for carrying and qualifying at work (Navy).
