This all depends on the size of your hand and the size of the grip. If you have already developed a comfortable trigger pull that does not affect your point-of-aim, I would say stick with it. Hand size, finger length, musculature and gun ergonomics all bear on this and it is too hard to have an absolute rule that covers it.

I breath normal then just pause on the exhale and squeeze the trigger then once it breaks keep exhaling.

Precision shooting is all about repeatability....shot after shot after shot. You can't get repeatability when you use the "let out half of the breath". Do you have a gauge by which to measure when your lungs are at 50%? Exhale completely....you'll have about 3 to 4 seconds to shoot before you begin to inhale.

I find that what's important is if you are relaxed, especially when shooting from a bench. Don't be tensed up and don't anticipate recoil, you almost want to be surprised that the round has fired.

I want either less corruption or more opportunity to participate in it.

I missed it. Was he inhaling or exhaling?
