hehe... it's called bump firing. I do it with my AK all the time on purpose. There's a sweet spot where recoil and muscle memory work out just right to reset and pull the trigger with no further concious thought from you. He just happened to find that sweet spot on the AS. The QA and the 990 don't really have that problem because the trigger reset is all the way out.

The double tap is probably due to your son's reaction to the gun going off.....so instead of jumping when being startled a shooter will squeeze his hand as a part of a startle reaction.

You can prevent this by having your son only use the finger tip or first pad of his trigger finger to shoot the gun. I would bet that he is squeezing the trigger with a large portion of his finger through the trigger gaurd. So when he reacts to the gun discharge.......his squeezing the gun's grip includes his trigger finger and the gun goes off again.

Hope this helps................ let us know

If you take your non dominate hand and grip real hard it will allow you to pull the trigger faster. This will allow you to relax your dominate hand and pull that trigger harder.

Also dry fire the gun by racking the slide. As you slowly release the trigger you will feel/here the click. Thats the point where you can pull again. Learn that and you will sound like a machinegun. If you practice hard enough you can easily do 7-10 yard grapfruit paterns on your target.
