I still shoot or shot the best with the Loaded, but it wasn't running like it should (as you could plainly see.) I could do better with the 4505, probably just as good as I did with the Mil-Spec. But there's no way you could make the trigger as good as a 1911 though. Most of the misses you hear are me not hitting the swinger plate. Probably holding too high.

Cool videos, what kind of camera do you use?

I also had a hangup in my Springfield similar to the first one, only the casing was still in the extractor. If you find out what the problem is, let me know cause it might have something to do with my gun too.

I noticed in your grip that you keep you thumb really high up. I was taught not to do that to avoid touching the slide and causing stoppages, as well as they say keeping your thumb pointed forward kind of helps guide you on the target better, since you're basically pointing at it.

But if it works for you, it works for you.

I was taught high thumbs, on a sig thumbs forward will ride the slide stop and cause failure to lock back. I shoot crossed thumbs now though.

JVC Everio GZ-HM30, it shoots in 720p. I like alright. I just wish the video software was a little better. Editing wise.

Well I was running an 18lb spring, some say that might have been one of the causes. I had never took out the extractor to clean in, the tunnel was pretty dirty. I'll do an update when I take it out again.

Yeah I noticed that, I may try to point my thumb forward more. (for better pointability) I don't think it caused the malfunctions since I used the same grip on the other guns.

Von Zippers I think.

I used to shoot with the thumb low (bottom rear of the grip panel). But when I compared the two (after finding out about high thumb). I immediately switched to it. I'm going to try to take the P220 out next time. I'll see if I have to switch to low thumb, probably will have to.

I tired crossed thumbs case it seems to make my grip tighter. Also seemed easier on the draw (ive also been shooting my revovler a lot and crossed thmbs is the way to go thumbs forward will get it blown off.)

I have some footage of the 586. I think I shoot it crossed thumbs. You'll see it when I post it this evening maybe.
