Does your firearm have a manual safety?

@Todd30 I am not sure when or where I learned this but I have been shooting this way as long as I have been shooting 1911s. When I draw and point I release the safety and keep my thumb on the safety during the firing process and move my thumb down to reengage the safety and then holster.
This gives me a steadier hold and one less movement when aiming and firing.
I thought everyone did it this was but I watched several vids and saw it wasn’t so. :us:

Yes, I do the same but, with big sausages for fingers my thumb has a tendency to push the safety on. I have come to crossing over my thumbs to hold both my thumb down and to have a tighter grip with arthritis. It has been working.
