    Watched a guy shoot a Glock on youtube. Cant believe i hadn't thought about it before, after he would shoot he would only let the trigger out enough for it to reset instead of letting it all the way out. Im sure alot of yall already do this but i dont but will be trying it this weekend for sure.

    You should do this with any firearm you shoot, pistol or long gun, regardless of brand.

    Yeah, I haven't tried this yet either. Honestly, I need to work on my grip and aiming before I start any sort of rapid fire... :)

    If your trigger spring ever breaks, you will have to hold the trigger back while the slide cycles, or it will not reset.

    It's pretty much the most basic part of proper trigger control, no matter what gun you shoot (although there are more advanced alternatives). It is normally referred to as "riding the reset."

    Since 3 years ago when I bought my first handgun a G19, I was taught this method and the FBI and many other agencies teach this technique, it's not new. I have no experience with a 700, but it works like a charm with my pistols and my AR.

    Yes, you can do it with your Remington 700, there just isn't much pretravel to take up, so it doesn't make a noticeable difference. It's most important with guns that have a lot of unnecessary trigger travel, like double action and striker fired autos.

    Honestly, folks, if you are reading this and realizing that you pull the trigger through from start to finish for each shot, it's time to get some training.

    Why would you want to shoot a gun with a broken trigger spring. Can shooting this way cause the spring to break....i dont see how it could but i dont know.

    I have only been shooting a Glock for a little over a year now, but that is the first thing I was taught. I had shot MANY other different types of firearms, but never a Glock. That little trick is super handy and it does make it much easier (at least for me) to maintain good trigger control during a course of fire.

    Shooting that way will not break the spring. A lot of people prefer to hold trigger back, as do I. Was giving out some gee-wizz info. Nice to know that if you had to, your gun would still function with a broken trigger spring. Also helps trouble shoot a malfuction, trigger does not reset unless you hold trigger while the slide cycles = broken trigger spring.

    You are correct, assuming you shoot a bolt action rifle that requires your strong hand to work, you would have to do that. Didn't think about it. However, but for working the bolt, the trigger works the same.

    It has more to do with less finger movement to throw your shot off than rapid fire. True, its easier to shoot faster this way, but more importantly this method will give you a more crisp and predictable break (ie point of release of the striker) which will help you big time with accuracy. Many who stuggle with shooting glocks accuratly don't know about this technique.

    There is just so much slack in the glock trigger because of the safety mechanism that it makes a very big difference. I honestly did not use it when I first got the Glock, I would just reset all the way, but after I replaced the 5lb trigger connector I started to feel the difference when I just backed off enough for it to reset. It helps a lot of accuracy even when you are not doing rapid fire.
