thumbing refers to pushing with the thumb on your strong hand, before you pull the trigger

Jerking is abruptly yanking the trigger finger, as opposed to a smooth steady squeeze.

It is hard for some people to get a good squeeze on a double action trigger; too long of a pull.

The way you use the pistol diagram is to diagnose a problem with your shooting. If you are all over the place it won't help.

If, on the other hand, you have a consistent good grouping that is out of the bull, and you know your sights are dead on, then you can start looking at what the cause is and correct.

I had not shot pistols in better than 10 years, and when I started back shooting I would make a nice, ragged hole, about 2" to the left of where I aimed. Didn't matter which or what type pistol, always in the same spot. I slid my index finger a little more over the trigger and it went back to center.
A wise man once told me: "No matter how fine she is, just remember. Somewhere, someone is tired of her !"
