Double Tap
 
I have shot revolvers for a long time at targets and had a good time doing it. Well, I bought a Ruger SR9 and had it out today. I normally shoot one shot at a time but today I got a good grip on the gun and pulled the trigger twice. Now I know what a double tap is -- short trigger pull on the second round. AND I had no idea it was that accurate with the second shot.

Do all pistols shoot this way or is it just the ones with the saftey built into the trigger?

My Desert Eagle didn't start shooting that well until I had a double-magna port job done on it:D

Gun control and the 9mm is what will put two in the same hole!

Now work on your Mozambique Drill. http://i695.photobucket.com/albums/v...biquedrill.gif

I'll often practice double or triple taps with my XDm. Got to be careful though; sometimes my trigger finger will get ahead of me and I'll have 5 rather inaccurate shots downrange in record time.

"Double Taps" can be done in a quick and smooth manner with almost any handgun. The biggest thing is practice.

Now I have had my 10mm (Dan Wesson C-Bob) fire two rounds by itself when it had a bad sear and hammer from people dropping the slide without rounds in chamber when it was displayed for sale. That was an experience. I have since made it safe.

I tried it with my 38 Ruger LCR but the accuracy dropped drastically.

I tried it with my 22lr Smith and Wesson 622 but I had cheap ammo that kept stove piping.

The next time I go out I think I will try my Smith & Wesson Patrolman.
