    Thumbing

    I just got a new HK P2000 SK .40 LEM. My bullets are all going right. I use the Makarov target and it says I'm "thumbing." What does this mean and how do I correct it?

    Or add some snap caps to a mag or 2. The LEM trigger is a bit different to get used to.

    Choking up on the grip with your middle finger might help too.
