Yesterday I was at the shooting range for a session of bowling pin shooting with my P99 AS (great fun !)

However I noticed that on one occasion I shot an unintentional double tap. This has never happened to me before. I know that the P99 AS has an extremely short trigger reset and my P99 was (and still is) in 100 % condition, so I'm definitively to blame (no harm done though). Should I be worried ? Is this to be considered as the result of a state of mind (stress) and how to avoid this in the future (during rapid firing) ? Maybe I should work on my manual of arms or shooting technique ?

Thanks for the feedback. :(

No. Several here on this forum have experienced the same thing. I shoot USPSA and on mor than one occasion I have bump fired a "double-tap."

Stress or excitement, either or but the only way to overcome this is to practice, practice and more practice....remember in the shooting sports, "slow is smooth and smooth is fast."

Practice more, make a conscious effort to hold the trigger back during recoil, get your front sight back on target, release til reset, and fire again.

This has happened a few times to me as well. I've been concerned that maybe the trigger isn't always resetting 'enough', causing the double tap. So far only 3 times out of thousands of rounds fired though so I'm not that worried.
