Training on Tuesday: Controlling the Flinch

Via Personal Defense Network.

“Many shooters anticipate the sound and feeling of recoil just before they fire the gun, resulting in a ‘flinch’ that adversely affects their precision. From this demonstration, you’ll learn a couple of ways to control your body’s natural flinch reaction when you fire your weapon. Flinching is common for all shooters, and can occur in three different ways: pushing, twitching, or pulling down. Our host explains the four stages of a trigger pull, and gives you exercises you can use to slow down when you fire your weapon. With these techniques, you will be able to calm your mind so that you can better control your trigger pull and reduce flinching.”

    For me the first shot is always the hardest. After that, no problem.

    • Jack

      For me too Pat. I love shooting and that first shot is what “unlocks the door” and gets me right in the groove.
      He was dead on. I tend to have tight groups low & to the left (yes, I am right handed).
