trigger control questions

Post by james r chapman on 8/13/2017, 3:59 pm

Maybe I'm just old , I find I'm doubling when shooting factory hardball and heavy factory loads.
Very disconcerting. It seems my finger is bouncing on recoil.
Suggestions?

i've heard of shooters having that happen. Is it possible to have another shooter use your gun and ammo?

Three

1. Increase grip pressure

2. Increase pull weight on trigger

3. back off screw in trigger if adjustable

or quit shooting hardball. geesh

Try keeping the trigger depressed after the shot until the recoil has subsided. Then release the trigger for the next shot.

I was trying to shoot some 230 grain ball and beat the gun into submission.

It's not as much a problem with light lead loads, more embarassing than anything .

I might have to give them both a bit more overtravel...

now that I think of it, I've been having issues with early release on my trap guns also.

wonder if they make a 1911 release trigger! haha

If it isn't mechanical, then it is probably psychological (like in trap and the recoil, as you point out). I wonder if you, instead of "ball and dummy," used regular wadcutters mixed in with the ball if you'd find the doubling problem persisting.

I met a very nice fellow yesterday at the Charlotte match, named Charlie. He was telling me about the old days when the service teams shot ball until they hit some milestone (maybe distinguished?) and then they could shoot wadcutters. I mentioned to him that I had shot some in the CMP match at our state shoot last year- mainly because it was a borrowed ball gun, and I thought I was supposed to use ball ammo in a ball gun. 

Talk about needing to be a hard holder, indeed!

Thanks,
Chase

Premature Release is not a good thing you might want to talk to your doctor about that.  Don
