On top of the other good advice in this thread "timing your squeeze" such that you fire between heartbeats can be practiced and learned. I have had blood pressure that looks more like tire pressure for a very long time so this is something I deal with constantly.

We had a reall good thread going here a few months back on "Trigger Timing, training, practice..".

Trigger timing, training, practice

I'd bet you can find some useful info there too.

    I've done more than most to mitigate the heart beat problem.

    Did some serious LR shooting today and heart beat wasn't a problem.

    Here's what worked for me

    Speen removal
    gall bladder removal
    Chunk removed from kidney. (They screw'd up. Took it from the right kidney which minimized making more room for the heart.
    Plus I dropped from 230# to 195.

    Hey ya gotta do whatcha gotta do!
