How I grip the Encore

Description: I grip the Encore with both hands on the heavy recoilers. The left hand wraps around the right and the left thumb helps support the top of the right hand behind the thumb. For me it keeps the recoil in the hand and not as nuch is taken by the wrist. It also keeps the spur of the trigger guard from hitting my knuckles.

I like how you wrap your left thumb behind the right. I`am right handed and I use my left thumb to cock the hammer so as not to change the hold I have on the handgun for better shot to shot consistency.Using your hold I can still thumb the hammer back and have better control then before....JFS

I use the same grip on the heavy recoiling revolvers. Just remember when shooting an auto, do NOT have the feft thumb there. If it gets too high slide/thumb contact is not fun. LOL

Yeah, that trigger guard pounding your finger is like torture.

I'll gladly pay you Tuesday for a handgun today.
