For me - while I really enjoy target shooting I purchased my glock g19 primarily for self defense. I try to spend a reasonable amount of time at the range practicing a balance of speed and accuracy from the ready position. Trying to simulate SD situations versus trying for a tight grouping at the bullseye. This got me thinking about the trigger pull. Popular wisdom is to "squeeze" or "press" the tigger to keep the gun as steady as possible when firing a round. While this is clearly best for target practice, I'm wondering if it makes sense from a self defense perspective? Under stress or duress, will you just pull the heck out of the trigger or will muscle memory kick in using the "squeeze" used during all of those hours at the range? My intuition says that the "pull" is most likely and this is what should be practiced at the range. Just sight and go - regardless of the trigger form. I'd love to hear from more experienced shooters, maybe some who have participated on idpa on their thoughts? What do you think? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
