I do know that there are those who prefer a gent’s saw to a pistol grip, and I’m sure you’ll hear their reasons as relies to this thread. I, however, am not one of those. I agree with you that pistol grips offer me more purchase on keeping the cut angle correct. Are you talking about dovetails or some other application of backsaws?
I have the Veritas pistol grip dovetail saw (14 tpi rip sharpened) and it’s just fine for what I do at a fraction of the cost of the heavy hitting pistol grippers. So it appears we are in the same camp on this one.
