Shaking from shooting?
 
I've noticed when I go shooting my right hand shakes, a lot. Normally I only shoot long guns and from a bench or with a sling it isn't noticeable, but if I shoot pistol I'm all over the place. My left hand doesn't shake anywhere near as much as my right but I can't shot left handed. Anybody else have this problem, if so how did you overcome it or do I just live with it?
I hope this is the correct section to put this in.

How heavy is the gun and are you strong enough for it? Try working out!?

I see it all the time for various reasons. I need more info. Are you shooting long guns prior to your handgun? Are there people around you? Are you stressed? Is your heart pumping while loading your gun or are breathing heavy? Does the gun have a big recoil? Is it a very light gun? Etc...

I was shooting a Glock in .40 so weight is no issue. Yes there were other people at the range, and yes I've shoot long guns for year and only shot handguns occasionally. My hand shakes every time I shoot: rifle, pistol, shotgun it just isn't as noticeable with long guns.

could be nerves, could be high blood pressure. could be many different things. do you consume large intakes of drinks with caffiene?

Could be caffeine, my blood pressures normal (any other time) I'm not sure about nerves. I was thinking maybe I should try and shoot alone see if it's any better.

Could be nerves or caffeine, I never really thought about that. My blood pressure is usually normal. Thanks, Ill lay off the caffeine and try shooting alone and see if it's any better.

might check into seeing a doctor. get a full check up done. does this happen when doing other activities or just shooting?

what type of work do you do for a living? could be muscle fatigue.
