Finger over trigger guard

Why is this less common currently

Is it simply the prevalence of WMLs?

I personally find it much more comfortable

    because finger slips
    if it slips it throws you off and you fail to retain target discipline by focusing on your finger getting back into position

      Then keep doing it. Doing what's comfortable & works for you personally is the second most important component of handgun shooting. The first is practice

      >finger slips
      Not if you practice enough. Are you practicing enough? I doubt you're practicing enough.

    There's some competition Black person with a cz that does this and wins. Basic shooting instructions are there to teach people a baseline. If you get good/comfortable enough you can even use a bone stock glock trigger and slam it back in a jerking motion and still hit a tiny target. I'm not saying "lol lowest common denominator" but strict teaching is that way to train the most people and remove as many different causes for issues as possible. It's why a beginner class will strictly teach people to sling shot the slide and not use the textured/shelved/extended slide stop because there's a million different guns and the students bring 5 different varieties of slide stop each and even some without. Instead of having to slow the class down to teach each student their own gun just use a universal method.

        Using the best people in the sport as examples of what to do is stupid. Top atheletes are always going to be genetic freaks and savants

    I only do it because it's hard to fit both trigger finger inside the trigger guard on most guns

    this influenced training, used to be that you would be taught/explained multiple methods of doing something then it would focus into yeah do this. you can see this with the whole hit the slidestop vs slingshot the slide on a reload. that got corrupted to always slingshot since that can apply to any gun. and since they only taught slingshotting any other method like hitting the slidestop suddenly became bad. same shit applys to the finger over trigger guard. the guys were trained only in one method then when they go on to train the next generation a few years later they teach that anything that deviates from the only thing they were ever taught was wrong.

    What is considered "the best" shooting technique seems to change every generation give or take a few years. People tend to follow what's most commonly taught and that depends on a lot of factors like what the guy above me was talking about. Some people then get really invested in one method or technique and insist that it's the one true way to shoot. Since the start of the 1900s, we've gone through
    >one handed bladed stance
    >kneeling/crouching
    >teacupping
    >Weaver stance
    >finger on the trigger guard
    >isosceles stance
    >finger off the trigger guard
    >palm-almost-on-the-slide high grip
    >tactical turtle
    Lots of these styles intersected with the previous and next ones, but that's kind of how things have progressed. If you find something that works for you, then stick with it, but training fads come and go because it's a business, lots of people are looking for get good quick techniques, and sometimes one catches on for a while. I think that putting your finger in front of the trigger is great if it works for you, but as a training technique, it was more of a fad. Gas pedal frame cuts are a good modern equivalent.

    If you just rest your finger on the trigger guard it shouldn't affect sight alignment. The problem is you will subconsciously try to steer the gun with your support hand index finger, e.g. try to counteract torque from the trigger press and it will result in inconsistent handling. You want the support hand to be strong and dumb, it shouldn't be trying to outsmart the shooting hand.

    I don't know what happens with this hold: my wife couldnt hit the water if she fell out of boat. But when whe puts her finger on that guard, she is really on-target. My conjecture is it helps with muzzle flip.

    This is literally the best way to grip a handgun if there is no WML, you can really dig your index finger into that grove and keep recoil down. Keep doing you OP

    I do it with my full size revolver because shit is unbalanced when loaded. Doing a trigger guard grip lets my right hand relax.
