most bullseye shooters I have seen focus on slow fire and discipline.

they also have the wheel of misfortune.

but I would like to add the wheel is not always accurate nor fixes for your shooting mistakes easily mentioned.

if you shoot low with a long heavy trigger check for flinch otherwise work on pulling trigger better. smooth consistent pull all the way back to frame.

can hear people recommend dry firing but rarely do you get further tips to improve.

use a dummy round placed randomly in the magazine to see if you might be flinching. do it repeatedly to work issues out.

edit

another website added

Hi, everyone,

These are great links. I definitely had a downward flinch for a while. I read about having a buddy load either a live or dummy round without telling you to prove the flinch, but I don't have a shooting buddy. This is where my Ruger Blackhawk was just the thing to diagnose my flinch. I would load a single live round, and give the cylinder a good spin. Stepping through the cylinder, I could clearly see my flinch. In the end the best advice for curing, or minimizing, my flinch was to not anticipate the trigger break. Just squeeze slow and smooth. It'll break when it breaks. Later,

MrApathy....Thank you very much for those links.....I almost always shoot by myself and have not been able to diagnose my ills and ailments. I'm sure these will be excellent tools....especially the "wheel." 8-O I didn't know there was anything like that :!: I'll print a copy for the range..Thanks again :D :!:
