Can any of you guys do this?

That’s like the old dime drill from my Army days. Lay a dime on the barrel and dry fire. Amazing how many people can’t keep the dime from falling off!

why would I?

all I care about is that the sights are aligned when the trigger breaks, how that happens is of almost no consequence, for me on long hard shots I start pulling the trigger fast like any other shot and will slow the pull as needed to give time for the sights to align, would a coin or empty case sin on the barrel through this? likely not but I get the hits I need in a reasonable amount of time. 

 

Most on this forum are not shooting Bullseye, a couple may shoot PPC or NRA AP where missing our point of aim at 50yd by 2 inches is going to cost us a match and whatever time it takes to avoid that is time well spent. Most of us are shooting timed sports where we want good enough hits as fast as we possibly can, that same 50yd target (if we ever see one)  is likely such a small part of the overall match score that just hitting it at all and avoiding miss penalties is likely good enough to keep you in the game. 

 

Now all the above said IF you have problems with basic marksmanship (aka you have trouble hitting the targets) then doing some drills like that just to get in tune with your trigger pull is not a bad idea.

 

I think this is the best line in the article", I have some idea of when the hammer should fall, but I’m not thinking about that. I’m concentrating on my front sight, trying to push the front sight through my point of aim, as my trigger finger maintains its slow, steady press."

 

I would remove the "slow" portion of "slow, steady press" for our games but the big take away is AIM while you pull the trigger, too many people that learned to shoot with a SA gun aim then pull the trigger, with a revo (and actually everything else too) it must be while you pull the trigger.

I've got two S&W 617s. One got a nice trigger, the other has a factory 26 pound double action trigger pull.

 

 

Even super glue couldn't keep a shell on the end of the barrel :)

LOL! 

 

I hope the ol 26 pounder gets reliable ignition!
