Larry Vickers- The Dime Drill

Larry Vickers, training and military community advisor for CCW Safe, talks about a classic drill for trigger control, called the Dime Drill.

This drill is one that is designed to ingrain in you proper trigger control that will result in better accuracy.  First, make sure that your firearm is unloaded, and take any ammo out of the equation.  Place a dime on the front site, present your unloaded firearm, to a shooting position, and pull the trigger.  If done correctly, the dime should not move and stay on the front sight.  If it falls off, then you need more practice. 

You can use a penny, or even an empty casing as well, but either way, this is a classic drill that will help you obtain better trigger control.
