    Have seen this term used here many times. Read in another thread about a trigger job gone bad - gun fires when trigger pulled and released. For the life of me, I just don't see how this could happen. When the trigger is released, the edge of the trigger bar slides forward past the edge of the firing pin lug. How can that cause the firing pin to strike the primer?

    DT is two quick rounds. Malfuntions occur especially if you mod the gun.:supergrin:

    Another double tap is when you feather the trigger and bump fire the second round.

    (It's beautiful)

    It's also slang for double checking.

    Regardless of conventional thought. Double tap is two controlled pairs. It's not just pulling the trigger twice to make the gun go bang two times. With this mentality and practice you can have controlled pairs within inches of each other @ 7yards.

    Exactly..

    Controlled, aimed, pairs.
    This was a common practice with small caliber guns
    where one shot stops were less likely.
    Particularly before ammo improved.
    Or some types of competition shooting.

    Really don't think of an unintentional second round being fired
    due too a really light trigger with almost no reset a "double tap".

    Even if I may have described it that way myself - LOL.

    It's when a GlockTalk member somehow posts the same post twice at the same time.

    :supergrin:

    I had this happen on my 22 that I put a ZevTech spring kit in. :whistling: Needless to say I adjusted my train of thought after having too light of a trigger setup.

    Actually, it's two to the chest, then one to the forehead if they don't go down.

    A double tap is simply what you automatically do when you understand a simple rule:

    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice.

    .

    As to the 2+1 idea, the SF had the correct ditty and should get credit for it:

    Nuk'em in the dark, and
    Shoot'em when they glow.
    Twice in the belly, and
    Once in the head,
    Just to make sure,
    They're dead.

    One controlled pair. I think that is what you meant to say.

    So, I just woke up and this is the very first topic that I'm reading today...and I'm slightly disappointed now.

    Two spigots in a beer keg. :cool:

    Touching the heel and then the toe of a specially made shoe (with small steel plates on the heel and toe) to the floor in rapid succession as part of a rhythmic dance form once popular in the United States.

    It's what I'm going to do to the 2 loose pit bulls down the street when I take my dog for a walk in a few minutes.
