One of the common misconceptions about firing a handgun is that you must have perfect trigger control. On the shooting range, the typical handgun user obsesses over the mechanics of their trigger pull, which is unnecessary and ineffective in defensive shooting. Rob Pincus explains how pulling, rather than slapping at, the trigger is enough to get the job done when you are defending yourself.
