Is Shooting a Martial Art?

By placing the palms together, with the elbows touching the ribcage,
one creates the "knife edge," a projection of the centerline of the body.
This is a simply way to visualize the plane that projects from the spine
through the sternum.

The Trigger Control Fallacy?

RETURN TO INDEX

Hand Strength and Handguns

This is the petite student mentioned in the discussion of resetting triggers. While she does not use her dowel-and-weight device consistently, by relaxing onto the gun, she is back on target before the ejected case has reached the peak of its arc. This is an example of a dowel-and-weight device. In this case the weight is a brick that weighs about three pounds. The student on the left uses a one-pint water bottle. ("A pint's a pound, the world around.") The same weight is not right for everyone.
