At this time, tell them the objective of trigger control is to break the shot without moving the muzzle. If the shot indicating laser moves when they’re breaking the shot, this is not good. A small movement when breaking the shot will turn into a huge movement when there is any time pressure placed upon them. Therefore, instruct them to focus on getting a clean dot, not a dash, and continue the drill.

You can tell the students to take the pad of their finger touching the trigger and push it high and outside rather straight back.  So, if it’s a right-handed shooter, they may push high to their right shoulder or above their right shoulder as an aiming point of where they are pressing the trigger (not aiming but where they are pressing their trigger finger rearward).  So, they work their trigger finger mechanics to effectively push, then straight back to get a clean dot, not a dash.
