    Apropos of the famous cut guard of the Fitz pistol, I'm expecting that after reading a Keith tale (Hell I was There) of participating in one of Fitz's demonstrations of disarming an armed opponent, that removing the guard was to prevent an opponent from using Fitz's technique of grabbing the revolver (or auto) into his torso and twisting to break the trigger finger of his enemy. McGivern in his own book spoke out solidly against removing the guard and he was a fast and fancy pistol shooter himself; suggesting it wasn't done for 'faster'.
