I think focus and breathing technique would solve this :
There are two stages to breathing .Take a normal breath slowly comfortably
Do this five times slow and easy , focus should be on comfort , from your fingers to your toes and your breathing.

Now take that same breath you will feel the uper chest , now take a little
more air feel lower chest expand , slowly , comfortibly. This is the disphram
area of your chest. This is half way to (Chi ) inner peace.

Slow things down a bit , exhale slowly , comfortibly , focus on relaxing
everything , toes to fingers , to face , every part of you slow mellow focus
must be total comfort .

Practice this , when you learn to feel ,relax and focus , it's a life changer.

To start , I would lie somewhere like watching tv comfort , foucus , feel everything and pratice this and you must devote a little of you.

When you learn to conciously relax , PM. me and I will take you the other
half . Serious as a heart-attack about this , it's up to you I will help.

I shoot a 12 ga. And the recoil sucks. 3 years with that and after the first few rounds I start flinching. Breathing exercises help me. If you ever feel like you are jerking the trigger, stop remove finger from trigger and take a few more breaths and try again. the range is for practice, it doesn't matter how long you are there for. The practice there can mean life or death. It's how I got my first 6 point buck.

To the OP: how are you postured when you are shooting? Standing? Kneeling? Prone? Benchrest? And you mention that your shaking is "because of a condition I have". Do you mean a medical condition like Parkinsons, or some other tremor inducing ailment? The more detailed info you provide to the group. the more likely the group can give meaningful/useful advise.

I am shooting benchrest. It is a mental condition that for some unknown reason induces clumsiness and shaking of the hands.

The good news is if it's mental, it's correctable.

Try mixing things up to see if it could be a physiological issue. The reason I suggest this is you said you don't have this problem shooting a handgun.

Try shooting weak side. Shoot standing, prone or any other form that may induce, or not induce forces different from where you are currently experiencing the issue.

I am getting so old that when I hold my breath to squeeze off a round I am sound asleep when the bullet leaves the barrel. I decided to shoot from a supported position using a bipod or a tripod depending if I am standing or sitting.

I only notice this problem when I am shooting my rifle and not my handgun.
Dnt hold your breath. Breath out and squeeze the trigger. Let the trigger break be a surprise to you and it will help you not jerk the gun as much when you shoot.

They'll protect your firing pin. Hope this helps!
Try firing with about 30 to 40 % breath left not all the way out. You need some oxygen to your brain to shoot.
