    Or...Could you possibly use a machinist with way too much time on his hands?
    Gee....& I don't think finding a holster would be too much of a problem.

    Perhaps he could also add a 'cruise control' option so that your shots could be synchronized, too!

    How about a wrist brace or something, maybe a fast deploying tripod. Or maybe you need to step down in caliber if you can't handle the .45 acp.

    And the best part of all - a set of these attractive, practical grips for your very own 1911 are a mere $125....

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    Back when I was doing consulting and working on computer systems all over the world, I was careful to use a standard keyboard and mouse at my home and home office. When all of my other geek peers went for the latest gadgets, I stuck to a standard because I wanted to be at ease when working on my customer's expensive systems. When you're reaching for a keyboard at an awkward angle, sitting on top of a mainframe, it helps that your fingertips don't have to wander around for the home row.

    The same logic applies to my firearms.

    I imagine that would be very uncomfortable to carry.

    It's a part that has been put on USPSA Open guns for YEARS. I don't know if they help or not, but there are thousands of them out there.

    They're usually incorporated in to the sight mount, aren't they? I've never seen an oddball set-up like this.

    I didn't realize it was that difficult to handle a 1911. I had no problems with the one I fired the other day. And, my Taurus is .45ACP, and it's a breeze to fire repeatedly.

    And, I use the "thumb-over-thumb" grip style. I don't understand why someone would need a special grip made for their pistol to make that work.

    Please take everything I say with at least one grain of salt- I am a very sarcastic person with a very dry sense of humor.

    You all are poking fun. But for purely target shooting, it makes good ergonomic sense.

    Yes, for purely target shooting, I can see it adding a bit of stability, as well as giving you a very easy way to ensure that your grip is exactly the same, every time. As we all know, consistency is the absolute key to precision shooting...

    But for a duty/carry gun - nope. Bulky, juts out in exactly the place you don't want something jutting out, looks like a snagging nightmare in the making...
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    This guy should get together with One Shot*or whatever his moniker is (I don't recall). You could have a gizmo on one side for your thumb and one on the other side for you index finger.
