Follow Through When Shooting Pistol

Follow-through occurs when you keep contact with the trigger and get your sights back on target. For slow, controlled courses of fire, only let the trigger release to the “reset position” between shots; do not allow the trigger to come forward after a shot any more than is needed to reset the trigger. As Lynn Givens of Rangemaster says, “The cycle of firing a shot does NOT end at “Bang!”; it ends when you are back on target, trigger is reset, the sights are realigned, and you are ready to fire again.”
