Had a match today and was not happy with my pistol shooting so I was looking up training tips and ran across this. Not for pistol but may be helpful for some.

When we miss targets in the team events or shoot eights and sevens on paper targets, we are hesitant to blame involuntary movements as a major source of shooting problems.  We tend to reject flinching or jerking as a problem, and blame the light, poor trigger control, poor ammunition, or the firearm itself.  We may dismiss involuntary movements as a problem for several reasons:

Seek professional training. Many good trainers frequent Arizona.

I recommend a Larry Vickers class. Trigger Control is his thing.

If LAV promotes using the slide lock/release to chamber a round after a mag change, then he should be ignored.-MP0117

I know what I need to do, I need to practice. I went from shooting competition every month and practicing with my pistol 2-3 times a month to nothing for 5 months while I went hunting. My rifle skills are great, my pistols chops need some work and I know what I need to do.

I just posted this as it may benefit others no matter there experience.
