Not sure if this addresses your questions but I've found that a firm hold combined with a steady, deliberate pull addresses both the anticipation issue and the control of the recoil. The firm hold also reduces the wobble that the trigger pull tends to introduce.

If your pistol doesn't have a good BE trigger job it'll never break fast and easy. Even a master would have trouble with it. Step #1, have good trigger job! Step #2,  see #1!

Congratulations!

(1) You just discovered the difference between training and "practicing".
(2) You just discovered what "trigger control" means.

To answer your question, why not just try some training with different levels of "hold" or "grip pressure"?  You might find out it is possible or impossible for you to have a light or minimum grip and still have complete trigger control.  Whatever you do, it must be consistent from shot to shot, string to string and throughout the match. I find I cannot activate the trigger consistently well with a light grip, and therefore maintain a relatively firm grip throughout the shot process.  Happy Hunting.

beeser,
Learn how hard you must grasp the pistol to assure its proper return to POA. It's different from .22, to .45 to Service Pistol. The harder you grasp the heavier "felt" pressure is required to obtain a trigger break.

Move the trigger s fast as you can without moving the sights---then you'll be making progress.

First never pick the gun up with the shooting hand, pick it up with the other hand and place it in the shooting hand.
 If your holding the gun on target and "milking" the grip stop! Find the proper comfortable position then place the gun there with the other hand! Never "Milk" the grip!
 Practice getting 5 good shots off in a string, don't worry about the time. As you practice keep increasing the speed until it is comfortable to shot a string of 5 in the required time frame. Develop a rhythm, the trigger is on it way back the same way the same time every time while keeping the sights in the center of the target as best that can be held as the trigger finger is advancing the same way every time. Don't practice a jerk, if you start jerking go back and develop a rhythm. Before long you'll be shooting a 100 rapid fire 10 shot string!
