Thumbs Forward or Thumbs Crossed?

For me, it's thumbs down:
>Works on any size handgun, pocket or full size
>Prevents hammer bite and slide bite
>No accidentally tripping slide stop or safety
>Seamless transition to revolvers so your thumb doesn't get BTFO by cylinder gap
>Gives more leverage when pulling a heavy DA trigger
>Strongest retention when shooting one-handed

Why aren't you shooting with the thumbs crossed grip?
You didn't fall for "muh recoil management in IPSC larp competitions" meme did you?
You know real life self-defensive shootings with real carry-sized pocket guns aren't the same as an IPSC regulated competition scene

    Shooting with your support hand pointer finger indexed over the trigger guard is the most controllable way to shoot if there isn't a light mounted on your handgun.

        Revolver grip choice is waaaay more based on hand size than it is for automatics. I see some people do parallel thumbs with revolvers and i dont get how

    I use whatever grip works best for me for whatever gun I'm shooting at the time and I couldn't care less about anyone's opinion on the matter

    Its totally personal preference. What really matters is that your grip and strong and consistent. I tend to prefer thumbs forward but some of my guns don't work to well with it because I shoot left handed. My Beretta is one.

    Yeah thumbs forward doesn't work well on all handguns, and the gun doesn't feel as secure in your right hand as thumbs crossed.

    I shoot with a thumbs-forward (more of thumbs-up for me) grip with most semi autos. I use the "thumbs crossed" grip for revolvers or semi autos that are too small to leave any exposed grip for my support hand to contact. Some people act like there is only one right way to hold a handgun, but there are different approaches for different situations.

    Honestly I don't put much thought into it, my hands just take whatever shape feels most comfortable and that can change from handgun to handgun as not all grips are identical

    Is that how you're supposed to hold a gun? I've been pulling the trigger with my thumb this whole time.

    I've tried both, and I just naturally cross them. It doesn't effect my accuracy either way, so it's just up to personal preference.

    Thumbs go forward and any pistol that has a slidestop that I can catch by holding it that way gets shelved.

    Thumbs crossed is more natural to me but I'm trying to learn the muh IPSC grip. The BHP frame is way too narrow for a proper thumbs forward grip though
