Use the Reset Luke….

Posted 06-30-2010 at 15:48 by Butch

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives says that the Glock ‘Safe Action’ trigger is a double action only (DAO) trigger. OK, but it is so much more…..simply put, it allows the shooter to use the trigger either way, as a DOA trigger or as a single action trigger.

If you start with the trigger all the way forward (I guess that’s the only way it can start huh?), and pull it straight through all the way to the rear to fire the gun, you just pulled it ‘double action’....

The six o’clock hold

Posted 06-30-2010 at 11:29 by Butch

It is all too apparent that there are a lot of people in the shooting world that know of the ‘six o’clock hold’, but don’t really understand its use or purpose.

For most uses handgun sights should be adjusted so that point of aim is equal to point of impact. In other words, the projectiles should hit the target at a spot right at the top center of where the gun’s front sight is seen on the target. Like this:

Sighting in for Dummies

Select a target that gives you a specific, repeatable point of aim and is easy for you to see without having to focus your vision on it, this is important because your visual focus needs to be on your sights….not your target, a 25 yard bullseye pistol target works well. It does not have to be posted at 25 yards, 15 or 20 yards works fine if your ability to shoot a group isn't (yet) up to doing it at 25 yards.

Aim at the bottom edge of the black, a ‘six o’clock hold’. That way you know...

Trigger Control for Dummies

Posted 06-30-2010 at 09:04 by Butch

The title of this would be more accurate if I had made it ‘Trigger Control with Dummies’, but we’re in computer land so I thought a title with some computer lingo might be appropriate….

The two most important skills needed for accurate shooting are trigger control and sight alignment. Of the two, sight alignment seems to get the most attention sometimes, and it certainly is a needed skill, but when it comes right down to it, trigger control is simply the most important.
