there's a right way and a wrong way to use your gun to fight...
If you're seriously all out of ammo, you're basically carrying a big paperweight... so strike with your weapon any way you want.
But, if it's only a jam or you need to fight to gain space to reload...
Don't hit with the bottom of the grip. This is basically the magazine's floor plate and this can damage your pistol and render your magazine useless once you want to put it into action.
Maintain line-of-fire discipline. Swinging your weapon all over the place - combined with hand-tightening on impact - could discharge a round. If it does, you want to control where it goes.
Strike with the muzzle. Think "karate punch". Pull your gun hand back to your waist while pushing your off-arm out toward his face. This opens him up for you to "punch" with the muzzle of your gun to the side of the head, neck, or groin.
Keep you finger off the trigger though... if the gun twists on impact, you could break your main trigger finger.
This is a good drill to practice with a plastic training weapon (like an bluegun or an airsoft gun) and a padded buddy.
Don't get so comfortable with your weapon that you don't think you'll need anything more than a bullet to stop an attacker.
