    Setting a good foundation is important. A lot of improvement can be made just by mastering the basics like this. Even when you think you're good and have them covered... never stop practicing them.

      This is absolutely correct. A lot of folks will try things outside their ability too early, or won't spend enough time on the basics.

    #6 Needs to die a painful fiery death. This is how trigger jerk starts when speed is introduced.

      Jerry Miculek uses trigger reset, and I trust his views on shooting mechanics. What makes you say using the reset should die a fiery death?

    Step 4 shows thumb up on slide, if you fire with thumb in that position you could do a lot of damage to your hand (thumb), thumb should extend over the trigger guard so it is not in contact with slide.

    Great job on the diagnostic target! I'm trying to find some left-hand and right-hand diagnostics to actually use down range.. Downloaded your other targets over the weekend - improving with every pull.!

    Looks like you have a conflict between Step 1 and the third item of Step 2.

    This is a great, easy to understand step by step illustration for beginners and experienced shooters to go back to the basics.

    I will definitely be referring to the chart from step 8 the next time I'm at the range.
