    I slap the trigger, I'm not a good rifle or pistol shooter.

    If I had learned how to Slap the trigger early in the game I may not have found it necessary to use a release trigger. To SLAP means to keep your finger OFF the trigger until the moment of truth when you are ready to fire and then Pull it with no hesitation or feeble attempts to Milk the trigger.

    Should I slap or firmly squeeze the trigger? I shoot a double release.

    Pulling the trigger like a rifle is a sure trip to the gunsmith for a release sooner or later.

    Bad triggers need to be slapped. Triggers that creep and have let offs that vary from shot to shot need to be slapped. Triggers whose weight of pull varies from shot to shot need to be slapped. HMB

    Whole lotta slappin' goin' on! I do a modified slap. I put my finger on the trigger but no pressure. Then I jerk it back quickly to shoot. I think I do that because that's what I did when I used to be a puller.

    I have shot a double release for years. I tried to shoot my friends new Beretta the other night and I could not get that doggone trigger to go off correctly a single time. I cannot , for the life of me, get a pull trigger to function properly. I should have suggested he send it back for repair, but funny thing is , it went off every time he pulled the trigger.

    We should have a 50/50 game,,50 with a pull and 50 with a release! That would add a tad of excitement to the game, I'd love that! I'd keep my gun in the trunk though if Drew Waller happened to show up. He uses both and quite well, sometimes during the same event. Hap
