  1. Wait, what? I was taught that it was a significant improvement over putting your thumb right next to the cylinder on a revolver and more or less neutral with regards to an automatic.

    I mean sure, I could shoot one-hand(or akimbo) if you really want, but my aim’s still better with 2 hands.

      The problem with teacup is it does not offer any meaningful support or control. You may get some support on the first shot (if your support hand is steady and does not interfere with your trigger pull, which is a big if.) but after that you would be better off shooting one handed. The biomechanics of a proper grip work to counter recoil and get the sights back on target more quickly. The biomechanics of the teacup work against you, as the support hand winds up fouling your sight picture buy helping the recoil push the sights up and off target after a shot.

      Next time you are at the range try it yourself and see.
