If it works for you and you can achieve your intended level of accuracy, speed and repeatability, go with it. I stippled the left side of the trigger guard on my XD because I find it comfortable to rest my left thumb against it while shooting. My thumb would touch that spot anyway so I went a head and integrated it purposefully into my grip. It allows me to have a target spot for both of my hands so that I grip the weapon the exact same way every time, increasing repeatablity. In short, do what works AS LONG AS IT REALLY WORKS. Often times we think something works but find it keeps us from evolving into a better shooter. As long as what your doing isn't holding you back from becoming better than I say more power to you.

That guy is Brian Enos. He for years was Rob Leatham's most direct/best competitor and one of his best friends.

If he does it, a smart person would watch and listen and adapt what you can to your own shooting.
