Do you see anything wrong with this photo?

The magazine with this jarring cover shot arrived today.  See the problem?  This is the exact WRONG way to grip a semi-automatic pistol. The reason for this is called "slide bite."  Is this as bad a photography fail as Heckler & Koch? Tell us what you think.

If you're doing it like this, you're going to get an owie. But we can help!
