Double-action, or staging is bollocks.

Brian Enos has it right. I've finally mastered the double pull on the P226. By mastered, I mean the sight stays more or less the same, not jerking in a random direction. The cure:

1. Full contact grip. Doesn't need to be tight (again Enos: like holding a hammer), but weld your hands together (especially the fleshy bits behind your thumbs).

2. No chicken-finger. Pull that sumbitch with conviction and not an iota of hesitation. This means no staging.

And bingo, lots of .40cal holes in the target. As they say on the internet, "squee."
