Hope it helps Ron! Ok know it did for me. I use the chart when I get a new pistol so I can adapt to the trigger on each gun. My 1911 triggers are a world apart from my XD-S, and it's even worse on a revolver. This is probably the best teaching tool I was ever given. Once you have your laser and some snap caps you'll be able to work out most of your trigger habits at home away from the range.
Another good training tool is to randomly place a snap cap in your mags when you're at the range and see if you are getting muzzle "dip" when anticipating recoil. I do that with new shooters so they actually see themselves do it. Kind one of those Homer Simpson slap their forehead "Doh!" moments. That's when you tell them to squeeze the trigger and NOT pull it and that when the gun fires it should almost be a surprise when the trigger breaks. That's why I LOVE my 1911's triggers. Super short travel and reset.
Hope it all works out. This chart just gives you a visual on what you're doing and help narrow it down. After you try it out update us on whether or not it helped you.
Have fun, shoot a lot, and stay safe!
