    edit: Well, my old Colt, since I no longer own it. I have two tommyguns though

    Sorry I missed this post until now. I usually shoot thumbs forward. I'm not sure if this is the same as high thumb.

    Any chance somebody could post a pic of the high thumb grip?

    Why do I click on these thread? I just know I'll end up with another 1911 (Have bought and sold 2 Colts and 2 Springfields (one a Linkless 10mm)).
    Oh well, haven't tried a Kimber yet

    I cant post a pic of it, but its simply resting your thumb on top of the safety lever, rather than under it.

    Thanks. I have tried it that way, but I wasn't sure that was "high thumb".

    The high thumb/thumb high phrase may refer to having your thumb raised as you grip the firearm. After clearing the holster your thumb goes to the safety, resting there until you are ready to fire.
