    I just read that laser sights and dry firing are a great way to practice trigger control. just watch the laser while you dryfire. sounds like a good idea.

    ...and, have someone randomly sneak a few snap caps in the middle of your clip.

    When I was 14 before my first real hunting trip my dad would (load) my gun when we would shoot, so I would flinch when there wasn't a round in the chamber they could all laugh. I only flinched once. The humiliation was a great teaching aid.

    I've found that when I'm right on the point of firing that focusing intensely on and concentrating only on the centre of the reticle and nothing else makes the trigger to release occur as a surprise every time.

    It's nice and simple and works for me. Maybe give it a try.

    Cheers,

    Matt
