The grip angle debate.

I've recently saw two opposing viewpoints on ideal handgun grip angles.

It's been said that some grip angles allow different guns to point "naturally" for people.  Some angles point low on some guns, some high.

Others say it doesn't matter.

The TRUTH (because using that word adds a sense of importance to my opinion) is that there is no natural angle a handgun rests in your hand that you don't create yourself through training.  What "feels" right is muscle memory and can be changed.  That's why I can go from sucking at IDPA with a 1911, to sucking at IDPA with a revolver, I have the amazing ability to understand the importance of muscle memory, and that through repetition no matter what I shoot with will eventually always "point right".
