Zins says it's different for everyone, and you need to develop a breath control method that works for you. He did say that shooting after exhale is correct.
For me, it's:
Is the line ready? Inhale deeply then exhale. That breath is over just as the command
"The line is ready" starts so I do another deep breath. When that is done, the command
"Ready on the right" starts so I start another breath and raise the pistol 1 inch off the bench and put all the right tension in the muscles of my arm. When that breath is over the command
"Ready on the left" is beginning so I start another big breath while raising the gun to the top of the target when my lungs get full. As I exhale the sights arrive at the aiming area at the same time as my lungs are empty. Just as that happens, the command
"Ready on the firing line" begins so I start my last breath and as my lungs get full, the sights rise to the top of the scoring rings, and I start exhaling start moving the trigger, settling in the aiming area all while exhaling and moving the trigger. When my lungs are almost empty the targets turn and when my lungs are empty the shot breaks.

That'll really make your hold steady, but the death grip might not allow you to have good trigger control or should I say any trigger control? Shocked

Well, yeah, bearth control using that method is absolutely the most reliable.

But stopping the breath for bearth control carries that death grip and trigger control problem mentioned above.

I'm glad we got so many smart people hear.

This spring I found that I needed to inhale more in order to make it through the strings.  My theory is that is was due to gaining some weight in the Winter or that I had unconsciously began taking in less air.
