Dealing with flinch
 
Got a chance to put 100 rounds through my new Ruger P95 and was more or less pleased with the results after not having shot for 15 years. Was elated that my wife went and enjoyed it as much as I did (thank you, thank you!).

I have a consistent flinch due to the heavier than anticipated DA pull. Any suggestions on coping? Should I just continue to practice as many first pulls til I can put it on the mark every time? Any techniques to work on?

Thanks.

Don't concentrate on the trigger pull so much. You are anticipating the shot. Focus on the target and just let it happen. Practice that and you will understand.

Intersperse live rounds with snap caps. You won't be sure when the pistol will fire and you'll be able to observe and consciously work on eliminating flinch.

It's a semi auto. You can't intersperse snap caps with live rounds and have the gun cycle.

Thats the whole point. It simulates a fail to fire and makes the flinch obvious. Its a great way to train.

I'm late to the party, but CA beat me to it. I do this all the time with people I train to shoot.

You have sooo much to learn little grasshopper.:D Knowing if the gun fire or not has nothing to do with it functioning. It's a training method on how to teach people to deal with failures, it just happens to work well with flinching.

it loads the snap cap and the trainee doesnt know if the round is live or not, trigger is pulled instant flinch feed back. 4 or 5 magazines cures it.

most people dont understand what flinching is. recoil covers it up. the snap cap reveals it and makes it really evident what the trainee is doing wrong. progress is rapid after that.
