🎯So today's student, Richard, was doing well learning how to shoot his new Glock 19. At 5yds, he could keep a tight group, but it was consistently low on a 4" circle.
In his mind, he was doing everything right, but there was still an anticipation of recoil and flinch there. It can be so slight and automatic that it's hard for beginners to sense that they are doing it in the first place (and a common response by many beginners is to blame it on the gun, aka "the sights are off!")
So, I just had him grip and aim the gun, and making sure to keep the sights on the bullseye. I would squeeze the trigger for him, and all 3 times I did this, our shots hit the bullseye.
When his only job is to aim the gun, and he can't anticipate the recoil, because he can't know when the trigger breaks when I'm doing it, we hit the bullseye just fine, every single time.
This was to prove to him that he really does flinch. I told Richard to practice dry fire at home, and he joked if there's ever an intruder, why can't he just call me over to squeeze the trigger for him?🤣
