Under "Handgun Basics" they've also got animations of the Beretta 92FS and S&W Model 66. Animations of various 1911s are all over the place - whenever I feel the urge to buy a 1911 I watch these until the feeling passes.

 

Now all I need is an animation showing how to fit my large fingers in between the molded-in ridges on the Glock grip. Preferably without the help of an orthopedic surgeon.

That's easy to do without a surgeon.  Just sand off the ridges.  Mask everything with duct tape and be careful to just sand the ridges.  They come off pretty easy and the end result is worth it.

Or buy a better gun. A 1911 doesn't require any sanding.

So finger grooves makes a glock inferior to a 1911?

 

I'm not gonna open up this can of worms.


When picking a firearm, you want one that is like a heavy chick. A gun that is reliable, doesn't mind getting rough, and one that goes bang every time. What's the point of having something pretty looking it isn't up for the task?

I undercut the trigger guards on polymer frames, usually. They don't dig into the middle finger so much then. Finger grooves work better, then. I suppose it just depends on how thick your fingers are.

Very cool site, btw. I love the ratings on recoil and the like!

IMO the finger grooves fit me just fine on full size models.

 

Once I move to a Glock 19, or 26 it becomes uncomfortable.
