So I am sitting here watching some of my favorite TV, Westerns of course and I see that back during the cowboy days, atleast on TV, that they never use a two handed grip as we know it today. I am just wondering when that style of grasping the gun would have become more known or taught. I am assuming that it was more likely when semi-automatic pistols came about. I have seen in old TV shows like "M Squad", "Hawaii Five-O" and the like, that the detective or policeman will do the old "wrist grab" thing whatever that does and sometimes a two handed grip with the little snubbies. Any thoughts? I am not talking about when it would be seen on TV, but rather when it would be used by police or military, etc. Could you imagine our SWAT teams today busting into a house with a big revolver . Or are there any that do :embarassed: ?
