    He designed a handgun that is about as reliable as a Browning Hi-Power in a plastic gun, no small task. The several folks I know that built all steel Glocks said they did not function and shoot as reliable as the plastic guns.

    If they had a 1911 grip angle I'd be onboard. You should be able to stand, look forward, hold the pistol arms length 90 ° to the right or left, then turn your head and look where the sights are pointed. For a defensive gun, you want the sights to be basically lined up, or that gun does NOT fit your natural grip.

    If I do this with a Glock, the front sight is up in the treeline, I have to bend my wrist to bring the sights on target. If I do it with a 1911 sights are near perfect for not looking at the gun, in this scenario, the gun is an extension of your forearm, where your forearm points, the sights should also point. A round butt J frame works the same way for me, as long as the backstrap is exposed I'm good and would trust my aim in the dark.
