However, when you do dry fire at home try placing coin on the top of the barrel. Practice your full trigger pull this way without moving the coin.
i disagree. as loong as your paying attention(perhas even having your honey watch you) you can very easily see or feel if your making mistakes such as flinching or jerking.

I'll agree with you both. I'm almost certain I do flinch. At least I pull the barrel when I pull the trigger. The gun was brand new and the trigger is pretty stiff. I fell asleep last night, I'm going to play with it in a little bit. The gun I mean.

How many rounds do you think you have through it so far?

About 150-200. Only been twice to the range so far. I have it right now. It was harder than I thought when I actually paid attention to how steady I had to keep my sights. Way different than my semi auto

That's for sure. I'd be careful loosening up the trigger too much. That trigger is all the safety you have, and the SP101 is definitely a carry gun.

I suppose that's true. I've read how people have dry fired a few thousand times and how it's loosened up some. I don't plan on that. It gets too aggravating.

I'm anxious to get back to the range. I probably will try and take my dad this weekend. I'll let hit shoot and see how he does to compare.

By the way, a Hogue mono grip made a world of difference in comfort and control shooting mine.

I've contemplated that. I'd have to see one first. I have ordered a theis iwb kydex holster. I don't know if that grip would be larger than the stock and cause the gun to not fit

With a 357 it's real easy to push as you pull the trigger. Another thing you don't want a soft rubber stock. Magnums shoot better with wood or hard plastic stocks. Don't shoot a lot of rounds with 357 ammo. Usually after 24 rounds I am pushing when I shoot a magnum handgun.

Pick something small like a light switch and dry fire it a lot. You want the sight to still be on the light switch after you pull the trigger. The dry firing will help you a lot with the pushing. Dry firing will only smooth the trigger out in double action. It will not lessen the trigger pull and make the gun unsafe.

We'll have to agree to disagree then It's pretty hard to see someone flinching while they're shooting a 357 (as long as it's a mild flinch) until they get to that empty chamber.
