What is the correct way to hold a Glock 19?
Today, I was shooting a Glock 19 at a local range. I'm not sure about what I was doing wrong. I had a magazine loaded with about 12 rounds. I was firing it until I had one little mishap. After one of my shots, I had my thumb up too high and I got a small cut from the slide hitting my thumb (nothing serious). When firing a glock (or any handgun for that matter), what is the best way to position your left hand? I think I was holding my left hand a little too high.

You got the classic slide bite.....use the Weaver stance. Always keep your hand wrapped around gun with thumb down and wrapped around gun.....and other hand supporting the gun or your other hand.

Depends greatly on your shooting stance. For modified weaver, both thumbs should be on the left side of the frame, about where the frame meets the slide near the slide stop lever. The pad of your left thumb should be on your right thumbnail, locking the hands together. Your left hand should "cradle" the front of your right hand, wrapped around your right hand's fingers at the frontstrap of the pistol.
This keeps your body parts well out of the way of the parts of a pistol that will bite you.
