When i first started shooting the one thing that always stood out was all the trigger discipline advice i received from friends and fellow shooters’, so that’s how i trained.
That was then, now it’s the exact opposite for me, i now train with my finger mainly on the trigger. If i’m running from one cover point to the next then i will swiftly slide in and out of safety.
Just because your finger is on the trigger does NOT mean the gun will discharge. Trigger discipline is being taught in a most basic fashion, "if you’re not aiming directly at your target and are set to shoot, then DO NOT place finger on trigger. This form of trigger discipline is great for beginners at a range, not so much in a realistic setting where there are multiple moving targets.
True trigger discipline IMO comes from having full control of the trigger 100% of the time (finger on or off the trigger) and knowing exactly (through rigerous training) when to squeeze.
I know most will disagree with this post…regardless, i welcome your comments and/or input
