Re: The F_ _ _ _ _ Word: Flinching
In my case, flinch equates to trigger pull and anticipated recoil. I've found that reducing trigger pull ( and a quality trigger with no pretravel or creep) goes a long way toward reducing or eliminating anticipation, aka: flinch.
Flinch will ruin your day when shooting competition and it occurs across all calibers.
In my case, controlling recoil is all about decelerator pads, or muzzle brakes. heavy, abrupt recoil not only is a detriment to accurate shot placement, it's a detriment to optics and optic alignment.
