TRIGGER JERK IS AN ILLUSION GUYS:

Dude is so ratchet.  Uh I mean he used a ratchet to jam in front of the trigger and knock backwards.  Here is the description from the facebook video post:

Trigger Jerk is an Illusion! There is no such thing. Your trigger finger is not strong enough. In this vid I pulled the trigger with this 1/2″ ratchet. Look how hard I hit the ratchet. I regularly break Glock triggers so I carry extras. Lol. Trigger jerk is actually Anticipation starts in the brain and moves the gun before it goes off. Not your Finger!!! Commonly known as a flinch. The fix is relax the brain and Don’t Do It! Lol.

ratchetI stripped like 15 hashtags out, because he writes like an 16 year old instagram girl.

The instructor in the video is John McPhee from Sheriff of Baghdad Tactical.  I’m not sure if he offers “Advanced Ratchet” or “CQB Ratchet” or “Long Range Ratchet + Knife Fighting”, but I’m sure the info is on his website if you care to look.

Thoughts?  You impressed by this flagrant display of ratchetness?

He doesn’t understand the mechanics of the trigger pull or flinching or trigger jerking. He is doing no service to his students with his stupid trick. He may be a bad ass operator but he’s no pistol instructor.

What is the point of this?? With a strong grip and a close target you can mash the trigger a little and still get OK hits? Well no kidding. But this does not mean you don’t need trigger control. His demonstration works because it is NOT THE SHOOTER jerking the trigger, in other words it is actually a surprise break. Take a new shooter who is basically scared of the gun and they will jerk the trigger and be off the target, not only because they have a bad trigger pull but also because they are moving the gun with their entire hand.

Alright, I think flinch has a lot more to do with misses than most manly men want to admit, so they dress it up as inadvertent movement from a trigger jerk.. Yes, practicing your dry fire all day will also help mitigate you natural, human impulse to react to loud, concussive explosions in your hand, but it doesn’t mean anything if you develop a flinch. I can dry fire with the best of them (a grand champion in fact) but when it comes to the range, I really have to focus on not dragging the muzzle down before I pulled the trigger. I’ve learned since that some competitive shooters naturally do this AFTER they press the trigger in order to regain sight alignment. So it’s very easy to drag that muzzle down before the nanosecond that you fire. Simple as that. I still maintain that some of the best shooters simply bypass the trigger jerk/flinch conundrum milliseconds faster than us mere mortals.

Someone should teach him about fulcums and how his experiment lacks them but our fingers have them. A for effort.

John McPhee is former Delta, 20 years in, who was literally one of the first guys in Iraq. He knows what he’s talking about.
