Have seen this term used here many times. Read in another thread about a trigger job gone bad - gun fires when trigger pulled and released. For the life of me, I just don't see how this could happen. When the trigger is released, the edge of the trigger bar slides forward past the edge of the firing pin lug. How can that cause the firing pin to strike the primer?

DT is two quick rounds. Malfuntions occur especially if you mod the gun.:supergrin:

Another double tap is when you feather the trigger and bump fire the second round.

It's also slang for double checking.

Regardless of conventional thought. Double tap is two controlled pairs. It's not just pulling the trigger twice to make the gun go bang two times. With this mentality and practice you can have controlled pairs within inches of each other @ 7yards.

Exactly..

Controlled, aimed, pairs.
This was a common practice with small caliber guns
where one shot stops were less likely.
Particularly before ammo improved.
Or some types of competition shooting.

Really don't think of an unintentional second round being fired
due too a really light trigger with almost no reset a "double tap".

Even if I may have described it that way myself - LOL.

It's when a GlockTalk member somehow posts the same post twice at the same time.

I had this happen on my 22 that I put a ZevTech spring kit in. :whistling: Needless to say I adjusted my train of thought after having too light of a trigger setup.

Actually, it's two to the chest, then one to the forehead if they don't go down.

A double tap is simply what you automatically do when you understand a simple rule:

Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice.

.

As to the 2+1 idea, the SF had the correct ditty and should get credit for it:

Nuk'em in the dark, and
Shoot'em when they glow.
Twice in the belly, and
Once in the head,
Just to make sure,
They're dead.

One controlled pair. I think that is what you meant to say.

Two spigots in a beer keg. :cool:

Touching the heel and then the toe of a specially made shoe (with small steel plates on the heel and toe) to the floor in rapid succession as part of a rhythmic dance form once popular in the United States.

One in the head on his way down is one of the hardest things you can do with pistol,
but I like the idea... :supergrin:
It's usually called "Mozambique drill" if I'm not mistaking...

What's a "double tap"?

Twice as much as a single tap.

Doing double taps is a great way to train. It's one thing to get the first shot on target, it's another to get the second one there as well.

3rd shot only necessary when the threat DOESN't go down!
(i. e. - USUALLY with a 9mm. :whistling:)

The double tap has been defined above. It's often mistaken for The Hammer which is one sight picture, two quick rounds. The DT is two fast rounds, each with their own sight picture. Obviously a DT is a bit slower than a hammer.

A Double Tap is a round of ammo sold in a box with an exaggerated velocity claim on it.

A double tap (or tac tac) is firing one round and then a second shot while the gun is still in recoil. It should produce rounds on target within 5". It is usually done from 21' and closer. Three shots are two in the chest (double tap) and one in the head. Also known as tac tac toe.

For the life of me, I just don't see how this could happen. When the trigger is released, the edge of the trigger bar slides forward past the edge of the firing pin lug. How can that cause the firing pin to strike the primer?

For simplicity’s sake may we limit this discussion to Glock pistols? A Glock pistol can, ‘double tap’, or even go, ‘full auto’ on you anytime the Glock is fired, and the trigger bar remains down. For obvious reasons this mechanical anomaly is not usually discussed in depth on GT.

Regardless of conventional thought. Double tap is two controlled pairs. It's not just pulling the trigger twice to make the gun go bang two times. With this mentality and practice you can have controlled pairs within inches of each other @ 7yards.

No, that would be 4 shots, total, rather than only 2; and, you should be able to put ALL of them RIGHT THERE, one on top of the other. Here’s me with a G-21 at 16 yards; I, ‘dumped’ the entire magazine into the target as quickly as I could pull the trigger. Personally, I believe this skill is an absolute prerequisite for anyone who carries a pistol in order to protect his life:

At closer range (10 to 12 yards) I’m able to put everything inside a 9” dinner plate; and I do this just as fast as the Glock (A G-19 in this example) will go, ‘Bang!’

Unless a pistolero is able to rapid fire a pistol like this I, personally, do not believe he should be carrying a 9mm, or lesser caliber. With a 9mm it's got to be repeated double or triple taps, or nothing! ;)

That's how I was trained by my instructor, two to the chest, one to the head.
