In this video, Mike Hughes explains the process of resetting a trigger after you squeeze off a shot. Resetting the trigger is something a lot of shooters don’t think about but is a crucial part of completing the process. To practice, pull the trigger until you feel it hit the point where any more pressure will cause it to fire. Then, squeeze the trigger as if you were firing off a shot. Now, slowly let your finger move forward until you feel the trigger reset. Finally, instead of letting the trigger move all the way forward, hold the trigger against the break point.
One of the easiest ways to train this is with the SIRT take-up laser. This allows you to see exactly when the trigger is prepped. Ideally, when you are resetting the trigger, the take-up laser will only turn off for a short moment. By practicing getting back to the reset, you will find that you are able to fire off shots quicker and more comfortably.
With all SIRT training, you want to reinforce the training on the range with a live firearm.

I’m an old guy (hugging 80) and can’t meet high energy training demands. My need is develop and maximize my above waist abilities, and pay close attention to what I have seen of your program. Thank you. Jim Ryan
I have several handguns but none of them are Glocks. Will you SIRT work for me?
Very informative! I now have 2 SIRT pistols and combined with the LASRX software I am able to get more training in for myself, but more importantly for my kids and wife also. Thank you for all the great tips on becoming a better shooter.
Great video. At times hard to see where your laser is hitting if you are focusing on your front sight. I use the Steel tyme targets from Laserlyte along with my Sirt pistol. This gives me automatic audible and visual feedback while focusing on my front sight. Great also for target transitions or room clearing.
I am an USCCA instructor going thru process of the NRA instructor class in June. I am retired law enforcement (35 yrs). Love your videos. Practice practice practice.
Just got the SIRT 110. Little slow at getting started after Tornado hit. This is a very high quality product, very impressed. I got my CPL awhile ago, the SIRT is an excellent program to both continue practice skill maintenance and improve with addition of new techniques for improvement as LASRX for example. This is a good example of Continuing Education to help make the world a safer place.
