Good stuff, never hurts to go over the basics and keep your
I am "That guy" when it comes to presenting my 1911 and the trigger not always going bang. Since I ride the thumb safety, I wonder if I would be better served with skinnier "tactical" thumb safeties than the wide lever Wilson Bullet Proof thumb safeties I've put on several of my match blasters.
I had the problem for a while. My weak hand was getting too far to the rear and under the grip of my strong hand, thereby creating a pocket as Larry Vickers says. I had to recalibrate to shift my weak hand forward on the grip and focus on pressing the heels of my hands inward.
I’ve had an issue just a couple times and then I just concentrate on a very firm grip with my right hand index and pinky fingers and all is well.
I also have a couple of the wide safeties and thought that might be the problem, but comparing my grips on those guns to other guns, my right (strong) thumb was in the same position. Finally figured out it was the weak (left) hand placement.
I have had these issues before and started working on my grip strength with captains of crush level 1 and 2. They have made a big difference and haven't had any grip safety issues since I have been working on it.
good to know
