Advantages in using different triggers?

Post by beeser on 2/4/2015, 9:45 am

Now that the dreaded anticipation impulses have been put a bay I've been concentrating on trigger control and I am finding that using guns with different triggers seems to help.  Because of the differences it forces me to slow down and focus on fundamentals.  On the other hand, if I stick with one gun or trigger too long I tend to get sloppy with it.  Does this make sense?  Is there any downside to my approach?

None at all based on my experience. The mind seems to focus better on changes than on repetition for some things. It's the Way of the Trigger.

I tend to focus on the sights when working on the trigger process (to better see what the finger is doing to the trigger and gun). And reverse when working on sights and hold (focusing on the trigger process to help understand what's moving the sights around). Anyway, the key word is focus to help see the cause and effect.

Anything that keeps "sloppy" away is good in my opinion.

I disagree. The trigger in one of the most important parts in shooting a good score. Just about every match I've shot someone is complaining about their trigger. The AMU shooters being some of the best in the country try to keep everything the same. When  your trigger changes it distracts your concentration away from the sights and too the trigger. If for some reason you think the trigger pull is a bit heavy it gets heavier because you begin to concentrate on it. I don't understand how shooting one gun for a long time will make you sloppy!

I struggle mastering 1 platform at this point in my shooting.   I tried another pistol and didn't perform nearly as well.  
So I think someday I will get there, but I am not confident I could move back and forth and do as well.
I use a Nelson Conversion with the same pull as my wad gun and also a 1911 for my EIC pistol. 
All of the trigger work by the same gunsmith.  The only deviation is the extra 1/2 pound on my service pistol.

One of the reasons why the .22 conversions for the 1911 type 45acp is to have the "One Gun" feel. Shooting the NRA 3 gun is usually shot with 2 guns by most of the top shooters. Until the 9mmwas worked on and was then capable of match accuracy the 1911 45ACP was the gun most used.
 Learning from an AH HA moment is why every top shooter I know wants the same gun. I'm sure most of us experienced shooter had situations that something happen to the trigger function that change the "feel" of the trigger pull and are not happy with it. As I mentioned before I've usually heard some one complain about it at every match. Not sure how long you have been shooting but changing guns to keep a different trigger feel may be why your still a Marksman.

Marksman is an honorary title graciously bestowed upon me by Bullseye-L.  My skills would actually warrant a classification a little less if there is one.

Hi beeze; Not intending to put you down everyone starts someplace then works up to a higher level. If you are interested in completion shooting or not learning the basics will make you a better shooter. BTW Marksman is the lowest classification in NRA Bulls-Eye type shooting. It's given to those that shoot below 85% of perfect score.
