    Actually, it would be an advantage to people like me who trained extensively and formally with those grips - bring it on! :)

    I find it odd that the Italian is more comfortable for you than the pistols you've tried - usually the reverse is true, but whatever floats your boat and works for you.

    Fencing master Eddy Lucia used to say "a good fencer can fence with a broomstick" (the expression may not be original with him). On the other hand, using a broomstick is not likely to convey any advantage, and nobody romanticizes fencing with one.

    I use the Leon Paul "Belgian" grip when I can't use my Italians, which unfortunately is becoming all too frequent. I even use them with a wrist strap (when people aren't being stupid), which helps quite a bit.
