Mastering Your Trigger

Do you have issues? I’m talking about with your “trigger issues” and many shooters feel this way about their abilities! I’d venture to guess we all have issues in one way or another and the sooner we admit them, the faster we can fix them is my notion!  Anyway, moving on!

So, do you have issues with your trigger finger not doing what you think you are trying to tell it to do with your trigger? It can be difficult can’t it? Well, I’ve felt the same way as a young shooter trying to be surgical.

However, Firearms and triggers, like people are all very different!  Some are louder than others and more difficult to operate and others are “Easy Like Sunday Morning“.  Let’s not forget everyone learns in other ways and at different paces.

What I’ve Found!

I am writing on this subject and put this video together after helping so many students from across the globe and from all levels of ability deal with, in my opinion, one of the most difficult elements of the seven shooting fundamentals.. TRIGGER CONTROL!

Well, I’m going to give you my unconventional approach with some key concepts that YOU can put into practice to help you “Evolve your Skills” with whatever gun you put in your hand!
Master your Trigger and you can shoot flies and bad guys as well as shoot more accurately at much greater distances is the goal!

Your Trigger is a Fulcrum

Let me explain! Your trigger is a mechanical rigid device that only knows two things: going back and forth! It has no ability to go left or right (and it shouldn’t) it can’t bend or go out of it’s range of motion. If that’s the case, then we (the gun handler), must be doing something inappropriately while we use it. Maybe, just maybe we are causing the firearm to be misaligned or interrupting the sights as we finalize our trigger press?

Did you Know?

Your trigger and your handgun or any firearm for that matter doesn’t care if your left or right handed! It doesn’t care if your left or right eye dominant? if you hold it with your feet or your hands or and this is a big one: Doesn’t care how much dang f

inger is in the trigger well! Not to mention, doesn’t care if it’s pressed

fast or slow!

All it cares about it, {if it could feel or care} is that the trigger gets depressed completely to the rear and in order to make a proper impact on target requires th

e sights staying on that target.

MicroManage Your Trigger..

One of my many phrases on the line is “MicroManage that Trigger“.

You may know that we all learn by walk, crawl, run. Mastering your trigger is no different. The quality of the repetitions of you exercising a trigger press is more im

portant than you just spraying and praying lead down range.  Even if you are home with an UNLOADED firearm learning your trigger in “dry fire” practice is extremely vital to mastering your trigger.

Pressure Placement!

Remember, when it come to trigger control, it’s more important for you to pay attention to the balance of pressure that is delivered to the trigger as opposed to how much finger is in the trigger well.. Balanced Pressure with your finger to the trigger is the key.

Do Whatever it Takes to Accomplish the Task

Everyone’s hands are different with a wide range of abilities and disabilities. Likewise, as there are just as many types of guns and triggers out there to choose. Your

objective is to do whatever it takes to accomplish the task of pressing that trigger without interruption of your sights on target and repeating that for sustainable success on the range and on the streets… There’s so much more, you’re going to have to watch the video! Enjoy Watching.

The Department of Two-tiered Justice

We have a two-tiered justice system in this society, to our utter shame as a representative republic

Published

on

In November 2018, an investigation by the Senate Judiciary Committee showed that all of the allegations made against Brett Kavanaugh, including those by star witness Christine Blasey Ford lacked credibility and, in most cases, were demonstrably false. The Judiciary Committee offered the evidence in a highly detailed 414-page report to Congress.

Now 35 months later, nothing has happened to those who perjured themselves to Congress, on live television. In March 2021, Senator Chuck Grassley, the former Senate Judiciary Committee chairperson who presided over the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings, sought to know why those individuals who had perjured themselves still have not been prosecuted.

Justice Requires the Truth

In a tweet Grassley wrote (paraphrased), “More than two years ago we had some bogus allegations against now Justice Kavanaugh. We know that people lied to Congress and that’s against the law, so I sent a criminal referral to DOJ for prosecution. I sent a letter to DOJ this week wanting to know why these people haven’t been prosecuted two years later.”

Many people would like to know, Senator Grassley! And we have other compelling concerns. The Russiagate criminals who won’t serve time in prison is disheartening. James Comey, who lied to Congress, likely will never see a day in jail. Nor will Andrew McCabe, who was dismissed for lack of candor and a bevy of other infractions. James Clapper will likely never spend a day in jail, although he lied to Congress, and then lied about his lie claiming that he was confused.

Perhaps the greatest criminal director that CIA has ever endured, William Brennan, might never spend any time in prison. He knowingly conspired with Barack Obama and Joe Biden in the White House, and actually presented information clearly showing that Hillary Clinton had purchased a phony dossier in the effort to damage Donald Trump.

None of these people are likely to be indicted, yet some belong in prison for life, for high treason.

Criminals at the Top

The granddaddy of American political criminals, Barack Obama, will likely never spend a day in prison, and is now enjoying his third term as president via his ability to whip around the pathetic Joe Biden. Obama’s weaponization of federal agencies, his undermining of Trump before, during and after Trumps time in office amounts to serious treason which will go on punished. No president before Obama has ever acted in such a despicable manner.

The people in the Obama Administration, including the Eric Holder. Holder was the first attorney general to be held in contempt of Congress. His whose criminality in terms of allowing Black Panther intimidation in Philadelphia and a variety of other egregious acts is well-documented. Yet, he will never spend one minute behind bars.

Lois Lerner, who graduated a year ahead of me at Bloomfield High School in Connecticut, quashed the Tea Party movement. She unlawfully used the power of her office to harass, intimidate, and thwart Tea Party members, but she’ll never see a day in prison. Indeed, for eight years, she’s been on the public dole, receiving a healthy pension and enjoying her retirement from ‘public service.’

Hillary Clinton will never spend a day in prison for the 33,000 subpoenaed emails that she deleted. Contrast this with rank and file service men and women who will spend 6 to 12 months in a federal penitentiary for deleting even one email.

All of Hillary Clinton’s corrupt staff will never see a day in jail. John Podesta, whose crimes are well-documented, belongs in a federal penitentiary. Huma Abedin, whose obfuscation and manipulations for Hillary Clinton deserve scrutiny, won’t spend a day behind bars.

And More…

All of the nefarious activities that went on to get Joe Biden ‘elected’ and nearly all of the criminals and treasonous individuals who participated in the fraud remain free and uncharged. Don’t even get me started on Hunter Biden and the Biden crime family. Hopefully, as the 2020 election-related crimes are more fully exposed, the clamor from the Right will be loud and long. However, nearly a year  has passed with no results.

Will the puppet masters wait for Biden to die, use the 25th Amendment against him, or keep him on the string for as long as possible? It’s anyone’s guess. Meanwhile, they will do everything in their power to indict those on the Right for the slightest of offenses, including process crimes, while wholesale ignoring the treasonous activities of those on the Left.

We have a two-tiered justice system in this society, to our utter shame as a representative republic. Until justice is dispensed equally, regardless of party, the struggle before us remains abundantly clear.

The People Who Size You up Instantly

Beware of people who conveniently assess what you need, while missing the boat about their own needs

Published

on

I went to a social gathering and, arriving early, few others had arrived. So I took out my notepad and pen, and leisurely started making notes. A lady who saw me, asked what I was writing, which, of course, could be either a friendly way to start a conversation, or intrusive, depending on your point of view. I took it as the former, and shared with her my predisposition to take notes outside of my office where I generate ideas that don’t readily emerge at my desk.

Apparently my explanation was not satisfactory for her. In rapid succession she told me, ‘You need to get a drink. (Actually, I don’t drink.) You should to stop making notes. You ought to relax. (Making notes is relaxing to me.) You need to get a life.’

Paradoxically, I am the author of the books, Breathing Space and Simpler Living, and the audiobook, Get a Life. I also own the registered trademarks for the programs, Relaxing at High Speed and Managing the Pace With Grace. I have delivered 1,060 lectures on these topics for three decades.

Quick and Wrong

It’s beyond strange when someone at a social gathering, in such short order, will assess what I need to do, with one pronouncement after another. When told that I needed to relax, I said, “If I was any more relaxed, I’d fall asleep.”

I came away from that experience recognizing that people who will readily tell you what you need are the ones who need what they’re telling you. You might have noticed a somewhat similar phenomenon in the workplace.

Suppose you work in a company that is crowded, noisy, and busy almost all the time. However, in your own office or cubicle, whichever the case might be, you’re able to maintain order.

Perhaps you have installed some sound barriers, if that is appropriate, and have crafted a workspace where you can get things done. People who walk by notice that your office equipment, resources, and possessions are organized. Guess what? Some office mates won’t tell you this, but they are uncomfortable with your organizing skills.

If they could find a simple way to articulate it, they would tell you, “Loosen up.” You don’t need to be so neat and orderly.” Why are they itching to tell you this? Because your level of organization makes them feel inadequate.

Be Like Me, I’ll Feel Better

Much like the lady at the social gathering, who told me ‘what I needed,’ some people in your immediate environment, in observing your capacity for taking charge of your space, and perhaps noting your higher-than-average level of productivity, would rather that you acted and proceeded in a different way. You might not hear that from them, but that is some might be thinking.

Beware of those people who so conveniently assess what you need, while completely missing the boat about their own needs. They fail to realize that what they’re telling you, is probably what they need to address for themselves.
