For a longish time I shot with the grip my first pistol instructors taught me when I took my first safety class just a few years ago. Then I learned a more aggressive thumbs forward grip from a competitive shooter and that worked even better for me. At the end of the day what's best for you is what your body can do.

One reason all military pistols where shot 1-handed (as in the 1911 video) through mid-20th century was it had to work for horse cavalry.
