The key to accuracy with any firearm is hand-eye coordination, and that's why we spend so much time talking about how to use your sights and where you should focus your eyes while shooting. It's important, however, not to lose sight (see what we did there?) of the tactile component of accuracy. Specifically, the way your trigger responds to pressure in your hands is a critical part of your accuracy downrange.
In this episode of Smith & Wesson's GUNSMARTS, pro shooter and Second Amendment ambassador Julie Golob demonstrates how to use dry-fire practice to familiarize yourself with your gun's trigger. (Just remember to remove all ammunition from the gun, magazine and practice area, and observe all of the rules of gun safety ... no exceptions and no excuses!)
As Golob explains, there are a number of factors that you're feeling for: How much takeup does the trigger have? How much must you pull through the tension? How long does it take the trigger to reset? You'll also find yourself mastering those processes almost without meaning to ... that's the secret of dry-fire practice done right!
