    No I don,t but It,s high . The squad I shoot on has four of the five shooting release triggers . All the shooters on my squad are older shooters with years of shooting under there belt .

    I shoot double release triggers. Would I count as one or two?

    It seems that when an active competitive shooter approaches around 40 yrs of age they tend to make the move to a release trigger.

    I noticed that I started to have an ocassional flinch at about that time in my life.
    I decided that when I was breaking 98 and flinching 2, I would go to a release.

    I can't seem to get the 98 so am still pulling the trigger.

    I find that if I hold the pistol grip firmly I tend not to flinch.

    I do have a release trigger for my model 12 in a drawer .
    So far I have made it to age 68 slapping the trigger.

    I used to be able to shoot either pull or release. The older I got the percentage of needing a release tended upward. At 67, I shoot release and double release 99.5%.

    I wonder? If I had a trigger done by Merle Kimmerly would it be considered a release or pull or both?

    Pull-Pull,,,tried release, the shooting was coming along pretty good, but had trouble when I got a broken/bad target,,,could not get "my head" around opening the gun before releasing the trigger. Maybe I am too old to change (hard to teach an old dog new tricks) at 71.
