    Very simplistic and basic diagram Paul. A decent starting point for sure but with handguns your thumbs will cause far more left and right issues than where your trigger finger is positioned. Again though very worthwhile starting point.

    I remember when I first shot a .44mag I was jerking big time anticipating the stick of dynamite about to go off in my hand.

    It all depends on where you are comfortable. Don't listen to anyone when they tell you where to place your finger because that works for them.

    I hold mine no firmer than my SR22. I have a red dot on my blackhawk and although I can print some pretty impressive groups nobody else can hit the broad side of a barn with it! Almost everybody squeezes the poop out of it and that drastically changes the point of impact.

    Meth,

    Inexperienced shooters, much like inexperienced golfers, should in fact listen to the basics. There is a very specific relationship between where you place your trigger finger on the trigger and the geometry involved in moving your finger rearward to fire. Just saying that fundamentals are very important up until practice and repetition overcome them. Just like golf.

    One of each is always good....as an Air Force cop back in yesteryear, we usually carried one of each...

    .38 S&W Police Special and a M-16{Vietnam} or M-2{Stateside}.....38 for quick and close encounters, but let's face it, when in a protracted fire fight or something high powered for or at long range....you need a rifle ....

    Besides the basics of grip, stance, I feel the most important item to becoming proficient shooter is focus on the front site. That goes for rifles and pistols.

    “Blessed are those who, in the face of death, think only about the front sight.”

    Who said that?

    Maybe because the rest is so ingrained, habit, it's really worth while to slow way down, look at your target, pick a spot, focus on the front site and put it on that spot. Keep the focus on the front site as you pull. Yes, I said pull. I squeeze oranges. I have a grip on the stocks and with just my index finger I pull the rigger.

    That and dry fire practice, like in front of the TV, watching a hockey game, going first for players and then for the puck, has vastly improved my shooting.
