Don’t push it now!

In this post, We get into the placement of the shot after leaving the cartridge. This first one is mainly based on finger placement and how you are squeezing the trigger.

When you place your finger on the trigger, for basic shooting it should be right in the middle of the pad of your finger. When you look at your finger, the swirl of your finger print (assuming you have one and haven’t filed your finger to remove the prints) should rest on the trigger.

If you look at my previous post with the picture of the target, you will notice in blue, the shots that are left of the center. This comes from pushing the trigger as you pull. When you notice this, consciously take a moment and ensure you are squeezing the trigger to the rear and not pushing the gun while trying to fire.
