Who knows? I can't see where is finger tip is; maybe he is tripping the release. Or maybe he needs a new magazine release.

Mag release was my first thought.

Help, advice?

First is to move his trigger finger up onto the frame of the pistol when not shooting. I tell my students that if I can see their finger when looking at them from the left side (assuming they’re right-handed, of course), they’re doing it wrong.

Second is to use a proper firing grip. The ineffectiveness of wrapping his support hand index finder around the front of the trigger guard is demonstrated by how every shot breaks that grip and it’s necessary for him to adjust every time. Then he’s using the both-thumbs-rolled-down grip rather than thumbs up and forward. And that may be what’s causing the problem. With his dominant hand thumb rolled down and positioned under his support hand, that could push it into contact with the magazine catch. With a proper grip, the dominant hand thumb should be on top of and away from his support thumb.

^^^^
The eye of an experienced trainer. That is a weird firing grip. My money is on the shooter now and not the gun. How could we have ever doubted the P220?

does it happen if he shoots strong hand only?

Overheard at an actual match:

"No, my name's Gonzales."

Confused

Has the advice here been passed on to him?

Perhaps he's trying to say that, despite all the advice he's passed on, the shooter is still convinced this is a mag issue?
