At range; Using decocker to practice DA pulls
226 9mm CPO non-rail.
Ok, just got back from the range today and I've noticed the last couple times, I've been working a little (a mag or two) of double action only shots.. I fire, decock, then fire again.. continuously through the mag.
For a couple reasons:
To see if the trigger will smooth out a bit with a good bit of DA pulls, which I can say it has, noticeably for the good. smooooooth
Also to get the feel of that first pull as that all important 1st shot when needed.
One drill was by holding at chest, then extend, acquire, fire. Sorry I don't know the technical term for it. I'm sure there's some technical/tactical name for this drill/maneuver probably. Sorry guys I am admittedly a untrained amatuer. :)
The other drill is like I said above, just firing, decocking (while maintaining muzzle point downrange of course), and continuing.
I have to say I'm every bit as accurate if not moreso, crazy enough.. The DA pull makes me dial in on target with smooth pull. Time for a DAK carry gun maybe.
So is there any danger to doing these drills mechanically? Am I onto a good drill here or a good practice tactically or for becoming a better shooter? Advice from you pro's always welcome.
