    Trigger Finger Placement


    Part II In The Continuing Series, “Back To Basics.”
    By Massad Ayoob


    And one of those elements is, exactly what part of the trigger finger should contact the face of the trigger in the first place?

    It is always a good idea to go back to the basics and review our techniques, IMO. That's why pro golfers have swing coaches and baseball teams have batting coaches etc. Thanks for the article.

    Goog article. I dont know how many times i go to the range and see people "yanking" on their triggers. Needless to say, their targets are peppered with holes.

    Good idea to work on basics but trigger finger placement can sometimes be weapon system dependent, and even shooter dependent. For my Semi-Autos, I find I shoot best with the pad of my index finger on the trigger while most of my revolvers seem to do better by putting the first crease (joint) of my index finger on the trigger.

    I agree about the weapon system dependent. For instance i was looking at the bodyguard at one point and when test firing it, i wanted to use the pad of my finger but the trigger pull was sooo heavy, i couldnt even pull the trigger... or you could look at it as i need to do more finger excercises.

    everyones different avery gun is different. and in the grand scheme of things finger placement on the trigger means almost nothingc as long as you are pulling the trigger straight to the rear.

    I'm the opposite. On my Glocks I use the first crease (don't know why but I think it may be the protruding "safe action" trigger mechanism) and on my revolvers I use the pad.

    I agree. Hickok45 has made the point that with him having such big hands its tough for him to use the pad of his finger on the trigger to get a good straight trigger pull. As long as you get the proper purchase on the trigger and can make a controlled precise trigger pull, finger placement for one person may be different than someone else and still be considered correct. I do typically use the pad of my finger on handguns, but on my deer gun I even go as far as using a finger tip just to I can feel when the trigger is going to break better.

    Mass is a good writer. A crush grip and trigger finger location at the "power crease" is what I use nowadays. Wasn't always the case though.
