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.

Prevailing in Turbulent Times

You can remain confident despite the chaos all around you.

Published

on

Everywhere you look, proud and patriotic Americans are feeling forlorn over the worsening conditions in our society. Concurrently, many life-long career professionals are losing confidence in their ability to stay competitive in our rapidly changing world amidst a rocky economy.

In actuality, no one in society has a long-term lock on any market or inside niche, and no “body of information” affords a strategic competitive advantage for very long. The reality of our times is that everyone is feeling at least a little unsure of themselves, and in that sense everyone is in the same boat.

Besieged by information and communication overload, it is easy to feel anything but confident. After all, your ability to keep pace is all but impossible.

Professionally, you can remain confident, however, despite the pace of change.

Taking Command

What do confident people do to maintain confidence, independent of the rate of change to which they’re exposed? And. how do they maintain a sense of breathing space along the way? Here are variety of approaches:

* Jump Starting: Initiating a small part of a project or activity in advance (getting a sneak preview) to gain familiarity just before the project or activity actually begins.

* Total Immersion: Surrounding yourself with everything you need to fully engage in the project. This could involve assembling resources, people, and equipment, as well as ensuring that you have a quiet, secure environment, free of distractions.

* Managing the Beforehand: Living with the ever-present realization that change is continually forthcoming and, thus, preparing for activities or events in advance.

* Leapfrogging: Recognizing that while you can’t keep up with every little thing that happens in your industry or profession, periodically you can leapfrog over the developments of the last several months and “catch up,” in a manner of speaking.

* Picking Your Spots: Related to leapfrogging, pick your spots in the future, say six months, whereby you want to have a new product or service introduced, or have some new technology fully integrated into your operations, and so forth.

* Go Cold Turkey: Simply suspend operations and engage in whatever it takes to incorporate a new way of doing things. This is enhanced by ensuring that you’ll have no disturbances, by bringing in outside experts, and by assembling any other resources you need to succeed.

* Days of Grace: After deciding to tackle a new project or to implement major change, build in “days of grace” and allow yourself to proceed at half to three-quarters speed. Acknowledge that assimilating the new challenges and changes will take time, and will likely involve some disruption. So, don’t expect to achieve your normal productivity or effectiveness… for now.

Small Victories

Finally, and this is vital, in all cases recognize the importance of continually seeking small victories.

This is Why the Left Hates You

“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first.” Jesus

Published

on

It is obvious that the left has become a venomous mob, attacking anyone and anything in their path toward progressivism. Those who loudly proclaim themselves against hate, are indeed the worst perpetrators of it. There is a reason why. It is a Cosmic Conflict at its core. PolitiCrossing Founder Chris Widener takes five minutes to explain the following bible verses (Video below):

John 15:18-21 “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the one who sent me.”

Ephesians 6:12 “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
