Gotta love it!


I was using the same 870 wingmaster I have now. It was about as long as I was. And these guys had gorgeous O/U's in the thousands of dollar range. Full outfit and shooting glasses. Steely gaze and everything. I would go out every day after school in the yard and drop black birds till I'd filled the yard with carcasses till my mom would make me go throw them over the fence. The more I killed, the more would come. I could do 24 or 25 out of 25 clay pigeons all day every day. Was pretty funny. He took me to a 'political' shoot one time up here with all the politicians and rich folks in the area. They actually had a sheriffs deputy at the gate to keep the green jeans off the place because it was baited as hell. Waiters on three wheelers with ice chests. All doves cleaned for you before you left. I killed every dove that got anywhere near me and he finally came over and told me to start letting some go by. I was a tiny little superstar for a day.

I still wingshoot pretty damn good naturally but any time I try to bust clays nowadays I suck.

Awesome for you and your girl!

I still shoot with my left hand "cupped". It's the way my Dad taught me when I was growing up in the 80's (he was LEO and that's how he was trained back when he learned). I just can't get used to using what is now the "accepted and correct" forms of a pistol handgrip.

Your wrist must feel like it's about to fall off after you shoot the Delta for a while. A cup-and-saucer is terrible for something with pronounced recoil like the 10mm wallup. I would try to change eventually. But I guess if it works for you now, do what you gotta do.

Honestly, no. I'm a big guy with big hands(but short, stubby fingers) and have been using my hands all my life for work. I've put 200 rounds through my Delta in a range session with no effects on my wrists...

Now, my 44 Mag Super Blackhawk? That's another story! I'm glad to have 13" of barrel/recoil-supressor hanging off the front of that beast. Even with that, shooting 50 rounds through it leaves my wrist sore.

And I'm going to agree with someone else in this thread. No matter what is the current accepted method, if you find something that works better and is more comfortable for you, then use it. Who cares what someone else thinks of your grip/stance? They aren't the one shooting, are they?

Touche'.

I guess I just feel it would benefit you. There's a reason they teach it a certain way.

But if it's already engrained in your head, do what feels natural.

Probably wouldn't hurt to cite your "textbook."
