Recoil Control, Cont'd.

I think the issue is that I have too much strong hand tension and too much weak hand tension. Given that two separate teachers have told me that I should apply more force with the weak hand, perhaps I should make that a training issue... Strong hand tension also results in the symptom of clamping down on the slide lock; thus, grip looks good in dry practice but tightens up while shooting fast and the slide doesn't want to stay back.

As a bonus, trigger work looks a lot better when I adjust tension away from the strong hand (where it interferes with fine index finger motion) and towards weak hand (where it's just a clamp to keep the gun running in a consistent manner). One of these days, I'll make it stick.
