Isolating Trigger Finger Drill

Let's not delay any further but jump into a drill. This is not a course for just talking and theorizing, this is ultimately about doing and executing. This first drill focuses on a single hand grip to press the finger straight back in the front part of the gun and isolated trigger finger as much as possible.You should be able to rapidly press the trigger finger substantially independent from your lower three gripping fingers.




Experiment with your grip and observe how your fingers operate in isolation and when they want to operate together.  Focus on rotating your fingers about your knuckles.  Be less concerned about gripping from the finger tips and applying pressure on the side of the gun.

Keep watching and you will earn a grip SIRTificate.

  • All guns are always loaded.  Treat the SIRT like a live fire gun.
  • Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
  • Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
  • Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.  Have a good ballistic backstop when training.  So just in case some how a live fire gun got in your training space, a bullet will be caught where you are training.
