Uh-oh. Turns out my carry handgun has a "fatal flaw."

Note to self: don't use this jacked up trigger pull and "aiming" technique.

    That has got to be the ONLY malfunction type I have never heard of or seen before.

    So, I guess revolvers have the same sort of flaw since the flash gap will burn the finger? Shooting like that with a PPK will slow down the slide and block the ejection port.

    The CZ -75 has the same 'flaw'... And the tokarev he pictured will jam from a partially blocked ejection port.

    That is just... Stupid.

    Use yer trigger finger to pull the trigger not to point while shootin a 1911, that way it will be well exercised and limber enough to hook buggers after you get home.

    OMG. Somehow this unique individual has figured out something that hundreds of thousands have never heard of, much less encountered in two World Wars, several large conflicts, and numerous other engagements. I think I will "risk" keeping my flawed firearm.

    Hey, he forgot the ole trick of pushing the slide back with your hand when someone is pointing a 1911 at you and taking it outta battery and then disarming them..........works great in the movies!

    I mean dang that should make us all not want to use a .45

    Let that "genius" try his world beating technique with a Ruger LCP or Kahr and see how far he gets.

    I expect the tip of his index finger will get pretty far. . .

    I also curious as to how he plans NOT to violate Gunsite safety rule #2 and still maintain some semblance of control of the pistol with just his pinky, ring finger, and thumb using that technique.

    If it really bothers you, the fatal flaw, you could just grind off the tip....

    I ain't giving up my 1911s. After I get my AR built... I'll probably try and get another.

    FYI, I don't know if it's just me, but checking this today, when I lay my index finger along the frame, that "fatal flaw" falls right in the crease of the first joint of that finger. Be VERY difficult to put any real pressure on that side of the slide release without intentionally trying.

    But then you can't promote a jacked up way of shooting with your traffic finger!

    FYI, I tried holding it that way and put my middle finger on the trigger.... I felt I had absolute NO control on what the gun was going to do in recoil
