First, let me state I mislead you a bit. This article isn't about fingerlakes but rather how much finger is the right amount of finger for a handgun. So when I first starting carrying a Glock 19 Gen 4, I stuck the "L" grip adapter onto the thing and never really gave it much more thought. However, I started thinking about it today after reading some about the Gen 5. So I found the following picture (clicking the picture will take you to the article).
I think I now realize one reason I typically shoot left. With the "L" adapter, I don't think I'm getting as much finger on the trigger as I need. I have never truly had any formal handgun training, I fear I developed bad habits from the start. But I'm excited to go home and investigate this more with the Glock. I suspect I will take the grip adapter off and try shooting it without.
And as a bonus, I leave you with this:

A few years ago, well, many years ago, I delved into the realm of the Ruger Bisley. I had this one made up from a Ruger Blackhawk, a .45 Colt:
A friend of mine also got into the Bisley, but in a much bigger way. He went so far as to orchestrate some custom models, such as this one here:
After Skeeter Skelton's death, he bid on one of Skeeter's Bisleys, and got it:
The one at the top belonged to Skelton.
Here, with authentication from Skeeter's widow:
This gun was displayed in the photograph of Shooting Times with the article introducing the Bisley. My friend was Tommy Russell, and some time later Tommy's wife died and I have lost contact with him.
