The grip you are using may mitigate felt recoil but is there a difference in muzzle rise (less or more)?
No, I don't think Bill Jordan used a high thumb hold. Possibly he did in bullseye shooting (thumb rest grips were popular in that sport back then), but I have no evidence one way or the other.
What I said was that I
use a high thumb hold with the J-frame. I even explained why. Then, I expounded on the result (with respect to perceived recoil).
I don't know about the "difference in muzzle rise." I only know the gun doesn't move in my hand and shooting it doesn't 'hurt.' (lol)
