We’ve all had the value of shot placement drilled into us ad nauseam, and for good reason; it’s absolutely important. But if certain other factors aren’t taken into account as well your shot placement is going to suffer, and one of those factors is proper trigger finger placement.
There seem to be two schools of thought on the most effective trigger finger placement: one group subscribes to the theory you’ll have good control and sufficient sensitivity by placing the pad of your finger on the trigger, while the other group uses only the very tip of their finger. And, of course, we all know you should never have the trigger positioned beyond the first crease in your trigger finger. With that in mind, you need to avoid hooking your trigger as well; that crease isn’t meant as a trigger pulling tool. But you do need to have the strength to squeeze the trigger, too, and for some shooters that rules out using just the tip of their finger. With that in mind, some experienced shooters tell newcomers to use finger strengthening tools such as the GripMaster Hand and Finger Exerciser, which is specifically designed for improved weapon retention and trigger control. But what if it isn’t strength that’s your problem, it’s finding and maintaining proper placement?
Enter the Strike Industries Enhanced Pistol Grip (EPG) Finger Bump. The EPG Finger Bump is for ARs and AKs and is made of a nylon-reinforced polymer. It’s designed to put your finger in the right spot on the trigger, every time. After all, repetition forms habits, habits help to develop muscle memory – you get the point. And because Strike knows how tough we can be on our rifles, the Finger Bump is durable, impact-resistant, and should be well up to the task of all the bumps and scrapes it’s likely to get into. Installation is quick and easy as well; you can easily mount it to your gun’s pistol grip with the included hardware.
If you know someone who needs to improve their trigger finger placement – even if it’s, well, you – Strike’s EPG Finger Bump would make a great stocking stuffer.
