  1. Perhaps it's a way of reducing fatigue if you use a very strong grip. But I think a lot of the more recent front-back C-clamp grip techniques, along with the pliable hands is aimed at not needing to deathgrip the gun.
  2. I've been focused on seeing if my sights return to alignment, so I haven't gotten to the point of resetting the trigger mid-recoil. At least, I'm not doing it consciously yet. Watching this video of Ben, he shoots close targets incredibly quickly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MnjzVWQkgww There must be a degree of manually helping the gun down, instead of just waiting for the sights to settle automatically? Although having read his latest book, he does talk about not even looking at sights for really close targets.
  3. So I have my sights returning roughly to alignment by themselves about 90% of the time now. But it seems they take too long to do so (I'm talking about what feels like .30s splits). What kind of changes would help with this? How are the top shooters shooting <0.15s splits at close range
  4. Perhaps it's aimed at people who already know what a good trigger pull feels like
  5. With respect, I think this is bad advice. Dry firing should be deliberate practice without distractions. Contrary to popular belief, repeatedly performing the same action doesn't necessarily mean you get good at it. How do you know you're actually squeezing the trigger correctly? You could end up ingraining a bad trigger pull instead.
  6. As others have said, that amount of movement on target is normal. You say there is no problem with your trigger pull and sight alignment. But you only know that to be the case in dry fire. In live fire, the target seems to be telling a different story. I've seen many people claim they're not flinching or jerking the trigger, and it's only when I load their magazines with a mixture of snap caps and live rounds, that they can see what's happening for themselves. I'm not saying that's definitely what's happening in your case, but at this stage, you need to find someone who can help you in person.
  7. I could be wrong, but from his latest Instagram video, he doesn't have his support index finger wrapped around the front of the trigger guard.
  8. Isn't Eric Grauffel a more accomplished shooter than Tyc
  9. I don't think he's dismissing trigger control, more that OP has clearly said many times he is experiencing shaking which results in more movement that would be naturally expected. That said, OP also said: If you take this approach, where you're trying to shoot when you think you're on target, that lends itself to poor trigger control and/or poor sight alignment. The problem is, you won't realise this. You THINK you're doing everything correct, but when you focus on chasing that perfect bullseye, you aren't focusing on your trigger pull and sights.
  10. Thanks, will try this. One of my biggest issues before was that my support hand would loosen after a couple of shots, and I was always told that I wasn't gripping hard enough.
  11. Now that you mention it, my sights track up and to the right. While it arguably doesn't matter which way the sights move as long as they come back down aligned, this is still symptomatic of too much weak hand pressure, right?
  12. Through a combination of Hwansik Kim's videos and other top shooters' take on grip, I think I'm getting very close to a grip that lets the sights resettle themselves. However, I've encountered a problem where my support hand is crushing the middle finger of the shooting hand into the gun's grip, to the point that it's actually quite painful and remains rather tender. And when I dry fire everyday, it means little respite for it. Has anyone else experienced this?
  13. Yes I'd be curious to see how much movement there is, and also a video of the laser on the target downrange.
  14. Ammo is not the thing you need to be concerned about. If you're shaking, maybe you're gripping the gun too hard. Maybe you do need to hit the weights a bit. Buy some resistance bands and do reps while holding them in your hands in the same stance you would shoot a pistol in.
  15. What kind of movement are you experiencing? Are you actually shaking or twitching? If you set up an IPSC target at 33yrds, how far out does your movement take you? Into the D zone? How old are you, if you don't mind me asking? I don't know if it's more about muscle strength. I'm a pretty weak guy, I have barely any biceps and my forearm is far from ripped. But I have no problem holding the gun still enough, even in one-handed bullseye shooting.
