    The first thing I would do if I was you is have someone else who is accustomed to shooting a release is give this trigger a try. What you might be use to for as set and release could be a lot different. I was trying a release on someone elses gun one day and every time I went to set it it would pull thru. Danny

    Tinkerer, you need some travel in your trigger, had the same problem with a release that was "too good for me" and would have the hammer fall because I would relax slightly after I set the trigger. Got some creep in the trigger and have been finer than frogs hair since.

    Slow the trigger down. Put a glove on your trigger hand.

    Tinker, your Perazzi trigger is probably out of time. Have Giacomo or another G/S familiar with Perazzis retime it. If you still can't set the trigger after the gun is mounted, then set it with the gun down and open, close it and mount it.

    Tinker all releases are not the same some have to be set quickly and firm what you have experienced is a pull threw you either did not set it fast enough or the trigger is out of time and needs adjustment. A pull threw will sure rattle you when it happens I have first hand experience myself. I changed guns and the new gun had a much faster trigger so when I set it ,it pulled threw I then set it with a quick firm set and it was fine just different speeds and lock times.

    Maybe it's a pull trigger? If you just bought it someone may have changed it.

    tinker- First make sure your trigger is mechanically working correctly. Take the trigger out and convince yourself it is OK. Then rest for a week and don't worry about your problem. Next go to the practice field and shoot by yourself. Work on setting the trigger firmly, gripping the trigger and pistol grip very firmly. Also grip the forend firmly. Mount the gun, set the trigger and then only think about seeing the bird clearly. Forget about the trigger, it will go off when it is supposed to go off. Trust your gun and only think about seeing the target.

    You are among many. Some shooters can't mentally handle a pull-through and become afraid to set a release. Another anxiety issue that can be tough to deal with.

    Good advise on getting your trigger checked. Bumping up the set pressure with more let-off is often a good fix. In the meantime, stay away from that thing until all is checked out.

    Your next step is a few visits to a qualified hypnotherapist. Not cheap but works very well for some.

    Your last step is practicing setting your trigger with the gun open and then closing the action. Not all guns with release triggers will function that way.

    If all else fails-take up fishing!!

    Visiting a hypnotherapist to cure a trigger set problem? I guess the next step is to have a clinic with the guy who can bend spoons with his mind...Uri Geller...and then go out and break targets without a gun. That would sure solve the trigger problem.

    mx2k33- Counter to your apparent skepticism, hypnotism can work. I once dated a girl that was convinced she could hypnotize me. She tried, I pretended, and it worked.

    Pat, I must agree with you. My wife is the best hypnotist I know. She starts out with....Honey, could you....and I'm out like a light for hours.

    Try dry firing using snap caps and a wall chart.
