You don't even have to wait until you get home. My wife and I were at the range last week, and she took some video of me shooting. When I played it back seconds later, I saw a bad habit that had crept into my grip without my feeling it. I reloaded and addressed it right away.

I switch between 9mm, 10mm, .45acp, .380, .22lr, and .32acp. It becomes real obvious what I am doing wrong. Start w/ a heavy recoil gun, switch to a .22lr and watch what happens. Have a partner hand you your own handguns in different calibers at each reload and see what happens.

If you dont have snap caps. Try having her close her eyes and just have her squeeze the trigger nice and slow a few shots it works with some shooters. I have had my daughter do it when she was starting to anticpate the shot and jerk the pistol. just have her work on squeezing that trigger nothing else matters and then when she gets back to good mechanics then have her open her eyes and start to aim again with the same slowness and steadyness they did when there eyes where closed

Got snap caps. I had to get them on line. I think she is being a little to gentle with the trigger. She is taking too long to get the shot off and by the time it breaks she is anticipating. This is a new problem. She was doing pretty good before and has a lot of rounds down range.
