This is my semi-ritual, when I remember to do everything. I get better at this ritual each session.
Loosen up. Relax. Put the jarring effect of neighbors at the range with the loud booms out of you mind. Smile. Take a deep breath. This is the fun part. after all.Bend the knees slightly. Like I am preparing to box. I'm not gonna move around in the booth, but I should behave like I could. Put the strong side foot back just a tich. Even the weight out.
Grip the weapon and try to make the barrel in line with forearm bones. If it's not, I correct it. Eventually you want this grip to be as natural as blinking. Thumb on safety of that 1911, or in that similar place on the SIG.
Do the "Todd Jarret Kung Fun Grip" with the support hand, thumb on spot where trigger guard meets the frame. I have to put it there cuz if I put it on the frame I touch the back of the slide release lever, causing malfuntions.
Be sure I am gripping kind of firmly. It's not a bird.
Now grip 20% tighter. Both hands
At this point I am presenting the gun downrange toward your target. Eyes focused on the front sight
Inhale, exhale a bit, hold that breath.Tickle that trigger so it is gentle and not jerked and so it surprises me.
Boom. Repeat by focusing on front sight and continue until empty...
