My grandfather was a horse soldier, and among the secrets he imparted to his son, my father, was which finger to use on the trigger. Our primate brain knows where the index finger is pointed, even in the dark. This makes it perfect for target acquisition, but not dispatch. Perhaps that's why it has so many veins and nerves. The tall finger has far fewer. Some say it has no pulse, but they're wrong. It's faint but there. It's far fainter than the pulse in the index finger. This is the perfect trigger finger. No more buck fever! Lay the index finger alongside the weapon, handgun or long gun, acquire a good sight picture, and squeeze off a killshot with the tall finger. The prey is lying on the forest floor with Xs for eyes. Those shooters who use a release on their bow find the score goes up.
