Thanks E39 !

I'm totally new to the .45 (the gun I used until now is a Sig Sauer P-228) which is pretty different...that's why I was asking whether the thumb on top the safety was an acceptable option. Your point sounds good, minimum effort and maximum efficency...I'll give it a try during the next range training !

Thank you !

Is it correct to place the thumb on the thumb safety when shooting?

Thank you!
I assume you are talking about 1911s. Yes, it is correct; the reason because you do it is to make sure that you do not engage the safety by mistake because of the recoil. Actually, I place my thumb on the safety when shooting my SIG SAO as well.

...at this stage, would it be advisable to substitute the original safety with an extended one ?

Thanks for your patience!

^ that's your preference. Practice is key to keep your thumb going to the same place, regardless of style of TS that's on the gun.

I agree; it is just a matter of personal preference. Same thing with the ambidextrous thumb safety and the beavertail safety.

There's *sooooooo* many good techniques out there. That's why I like to learn from as many as possible, so I can choose not only what fits me best, but also what fits the firearms that I'm shooting.

There's more than one way to skin a cat! :smile:
