2. Depends on the topic.

Politics, policy, self defense, crime : "gun control and RKBA" forum/group

Hunting, shooting sports : "outdoor life" forum/group

3. Thanks for the clarification.

I thought this was the place to talk about, for example, overcoming my flinch (taking CorneredCat's suggestion and working with snap caps).

4. This would be the correct group/forum for that.

Snap caps are a good way to cut down on flinching.

5. I would suggest a good (I'm partial to S&W) double action revolver, if you are using something else.

These are really the handguns that teach you to shoot handguns, you just have to resist the temptation to cock the hammer.

Once you learn how to manage the long, heavy trigger of a DA revolver, you'll go back to your other weapons with a knowledge of trigger control you would never before have thought you could have achieved. (I'm going to let that sentence stand in its first draft as a monument to its own awkwardness....)

6. I enjoy S&W revolvers, But

A double action trigger does not in itself help with flinching.

As mentioned sticking in a snap cap at random will help reveal a flinch. Dry firing or using snap caps will help cure flinching.

Putting a coin on your gun and dry firing while trying to keep the coin from falling is another good way.

Getting a laser while dry fireing, trying to keep the laser steady,

Using a .22 to learn trigger control.

Last but not least getting good ear protection helps prevent and cure flinching. Because often it is the flash and bang that causes the flinvh, not the felt recoil.

7. Indeed.

I meant do the dry fire drills with a double action revolver, if possible.

8. Another method you can try

Next time you are at the range, hang a target and do some dry fire practice. after three PERFECT dry fire shots in a row, load one round and fire. Then to back to dry fire mode until you achieve three more PERFECT dry fires in a row. Repeat until every first shot of your dry fire practice is perfect, then try a full magazine/cylinder.

I prefer this method as it mixes dry fire with live rounds with no surprises. This helps teach your body what a properly executed shot feels like. In my experience, it has been more effective than the "ball and dummy" drill hat many people use.
