Trigger Finger Question...Your Thoughts ?
Again...taken from another forum. Should you take up that trigger slack? Would that be OK when carrying a firearm with a heavy DA first trigger pull & lots of trigger slack?
"I noticed today while killing some time and dry firing my 220 that I have developed a habit of taking the slack out of that first DA pull during the course of drawing from concealment.
So I began to wonder, at what point should the trigger finger be placed on the trigger when practicing, trying to build muscle memory, for drawing from concealment? I recognize that gun safety dictates finger off the trigger until you are ready to fire, but how much weight should I give this rule when practicing for defensive shooting?
I'm afraid that all I've done is develop a bad habit that is going to be hard to break, but when I try to keep my finger off the trigger until after my sights have lined up with my target, I feel jerky and awkward with trying to bring my finger off the frame, to the trigger, and achieve a smooth trigger pull.
How about it guys and gals? Am I facing a lot of practice to try and break this habit or as long as I keep my finger off the trigger during non-life threatening situations am I good? I'm afraid I know the answer but I wanted some more knowledgeable opinions from others. Gracias."
