I have been shooting handguns for over 12 years now. I have attended two different academys. NYS Dept of Corrections and the NYPD academy. Both teach to pull the trigger with the first pad of your index finger. I have been shooting this way and it has worked out well. I shoot good groups out to 25 yards.
I recently tried shooting with the first joint of my index finger. I have very long fingers and I actually shoot better this way. It has been drilled into my head in both academys that shooting this way will jerk the trigger. Therefore, for over 12 years I've complied with that instruction. But if the first joint works better for a guy with ET fingers, than why not shoot that way?
Does anyone else have this issue?
