Title: Model '12 Favorite Method for Ensuring You Remember to Pull the Trigger at Line
Post by: Allie Mo on May 05, 2016, 06:07:53 PM
Hi Folks,

Do you have a little trick to ensure you pull the trigger? I've seen clothespins. Do you have another thingy (technical trigger term) you use as a reminder?

Thanks,

Allie

Allie darlin', I use a checkered flag bandana type thing. Let's me know and everyone else know that I have a Model 12. Also, the checkered flag is a mental winner!!

I run my brass bag through the trigger guard to help remember.   Sometimes I still forget.

Both Serenity and I use clothes pins, an idea from friends.  Mine is blue and Serenity's is pink.  Although not the match you are talking about, at the recent New York State WB match, I had to use her pink one!
By the way the NY match was absolutely fantastic.  I have never seen so many different kinds of moving and still targets in one match.

Allie,
I use clothes pins. Mostly blue, I do have red and pink. They have saved me many times.

I'm thinking a clothes pin is the best too.

Allie,
I use a piece of blue painter tape on the stock. Since I shoot a hammered SxS for cowboy the blue tape tells me its the model 12.

When the rule came about, my friend Hollifer A. Dollar developed this little comedy routine of calling the TO over and showing off his Model 12.  I thought it was clever and fun so I do a version of that now.

For me it is a bandana through the trigger guard.  The last thing I do before calling for time is to look down the line at all my guns to make sure I am ready.  The red bandana would tell me that the trigger on the M12 has not been declared.

 use a '97  ;)
joke aside, I use a bandana or some kind of remember gadget and still I forget and the TO saves me by asking what kind of shotgun that is

my best bet is that you use something that you understand and will remind you and then
practice practice practice

A small, colorful carabiner comes in handy, too. Then, you just clip it to your belt.

All good ideas but remember the trigger pull is a safety check. It's not a game of gotcha. TO.'s should always be looking over their shooters checking for mag in pistol and model 12's etc. " nice model  12" "is that a model 12" even other competitors get in on it

I agree completely on this, it's a safety check... nothing more.  We do the same checks to the shooter's other firearms are not cocked when they come to the line, and this is the procedure for verifying the Model 12 shotgun is not cocked... plain and simple.

This sounds perfect.
