It comes down to two things
« on: December 16, 2021, 09:00:15 pm »
I've read a few "Articles" online about how Trigger Pull is not so important... and jerking the trigger is myth.  That, my friends, is bulls___. Voda Level Bulls___.  If you talk to competition rifle shooters, they will talk about the importance of trigger pull, with a 9 pound rifle with a 2 pound - or less - trigger.  And the trigger pull is critical there.  And with a handgun, you have a 2 pound pistol with a 9 pound trigger pull... magnifying the issue.  Trigger pull becomes so much greater. 
Competition Pistol Shooters also stress the trigger pull and advocate and practice dry-fire drills daily.  Because the trigger pull is critical.
In a Shooter's Bible from 1955 a competition shooter even said, back then, that trigger pull was paramount of importance. 
Nothing has changed, saved the new batch of Tactical Timmy's is using Click Bait Shock value like the Howard Sterns of Firearms Training... While dismissing conventional wisdom gained by decades and decades of experience. 
Don't fall for it.  Good Shooting comes down to two things:

    This is spot on. I've been target shooting with .22 rifles for more than thirty years now and trigger pull is one of the first practical things taught to new shooters.
