Hit Your Target Every Time With Retired Navy SEAL Trigger Trick

Hey guys, what’s going on, I’m retired Navy SEAL sniper instructor, Chris Sajnog and founder of The New Rules of Marksmanship training system. And in this post, I want to teach you a sniper trick that’s going to help you hit your target every single time. Now let’s go ahead and get started. 

I just wanted to share a super easy trick that is going to blow your mind away with how easy it is and how helpful it is.

Chris Sajnog demonstrates the knuckle trick when shooting a pistol.

Knuckle Direction

I want you to keep the knuckle of your trigger finger pointed directly at the target when you shoot. I’ll show you how that’s going to work with your pistol. And it also works with rifles and with carbines.

Now first off, let me show you what I mean by keeping your knuckle straight when you are pulling the trigger. When you keep your knuckle straight, it eliminates the chance that your gun will move because of your trigger finger. 

If you pull the trigger and your knuckle moves to the left, your gun is also going to move to the left, and it’s the same thing when moving it right. So you do not want to do that if you want to hit your target.

How To Practice

The way to keep that straight is to practice it but also make sure that you have a good grip on the gun. Once you have a good grip, you want to let your trigger finger land wherever it feels most comfortable

There is a drill that you can practice anywhere. You can use a pencil and place it under your trigger finger and move it up and down. You will see that the more that your knuckle moves, the more the pen is going to move. This works the same way with a gun.

Use this sniper trick every time you shoot and hopefully, it helps make you a better shooter and hit your target every single time. Until next time, keep paving your path to perfection.
