					After many years of problems with Pistols, this paragraph has helped me
much.

c. Isometric Tension. The firer raises his arms to a firing position and
applies isometric tension. This is commonly known as the push-pull method
for
maintaining weapon stability. Isometric tension is when the firer applies
forward pressure with the firing hand and pulls rearward with the
nonfiring
hand with equal pressure. This creates an isometric force but never so
much to
cause the firer to tremble. This steadies the weapon and reduces barrel
rise
from recoil. The supporting arm is bent with the elbow pulled downward.
The
firing arm is fully extended with the elbow and wrist locked. The firer
must
experiment to find the right amount of isometric tension to apply.

NOTE: The firing hand should exert the same pressure as the nonfiring
hand. If
it does not, a missed target could result.
