I have a tendancy to blink when I shoot.. Should I work on correcting this?
P.s. I came across an opportunity for some money so I can start the M14 for gpa fund. haha
Whats happening? Everyone OK?

You become a source of wisdom for us younger ones here in the Gunslot Nation
Thanks Adam, Much appreciated.
but noone has commented on my question. haha
for sure work on it.
mabe practice dry fire
Really bad for rifles?
Edit: I think it is the sound. I dont blink when I shoot the bb guns or my bow.. or the .22 for that matter.
I really don't know the correct answer??? Blinking is a reflex action connected with microscopic particles contacting your eye & to keep it moist. You might be able to eliminate some of it, but I doubt you could get rid of it 100%?? Don't know for sure. You might get some insight into this from your doctor, it's worth asking the question. I will have to notice the next time I go shooting, because I don't pay any attention to it at all????
I mean as soon as the gun fires, I blink, like when someone claps their hand in your faceBAM!!
You may be anticipating the shot also, grab some snap caps ( non fireing rubber rounds) in the caliber of your rifle and you be good.
That is probobly the case. Where would I find "snap caps" I dont think they sell em at bi-mart, then again I havent looked for them
Any gun shop should carry them or you can get them online from Cheaper than dirt or anywhere else.
is a rather uncommon calibur, should I just get some .308 ones and work on it with my saiga?
Try www.pachmayer.com They make A-Zoom snap caps. there the ones I use & are very well made. Check them out & see if they have your size
do thes snap cap thingys have any recoil?
No, there dummy practice rounds with a rubber insert in place of the primer. this eliminates firing pin over travel, which is the biggest cause of damage connected with dry firing.
ok. will my saiga eject the round if I have 2 in the mag?
Yes, these snap caps are machined out of a piece of solid billet aluminum, & are to spec of factory ammo.
I am heading to crash, the oldest is feeling better and was a real help but between playing nurse and watch Hamlin win and the damn Raidersgiving me a heart attack I need to go to sleep! See yall tommorow!
Damn double posts! LOL
Have a good night.
See ya all.
this is like 4 night running that i come in when our buddys heading out the door, or is out it..
Whats up ya all.. anybody have any facinating thoughts for me to ponder..
Any fired round gives you the same thing.. and the boys have it.. anticipation.. Not much you can do on it.. One way to see how much your anticipating is to fire a large caliber revolver..put in two rounds and do the Russian roulette spin the cylinder thing.. you would be amazed at how obvious it is when you jerk with an empty cyl..This is a good drill to "prove" your anticipating.. curing just takes focus on the trigger pull and sights.. Nothing else exists.. When it all works right that muzzle stays still when the hammer falls.. Good luck..
My gpas .41 magnum stubbie should work. haha
Has anyone gone over the basic of breath control, sight alignment, trigger sqeeze (not pull) etc. with you?
No not that way dumb shit.. you continue to have good posts, and more and more were getting a feeling you were flat raised right.. Don't go getting a big head, but not to many 16 year olds are going to be excepted in here so just keep on being what you are..
Now.. Tell us about your G-paws 41.. going to guess its a S&W 58 N frame right.. or could it be a 57 (sights).. To be honest i've never seen one in any thing but 4 and 6.. know they made a snubed nose in it, but don't think they made many.. Tell us about it.. adjustable rear sights or fixed channel?.. front sight have an orange or red insert in it?.. The cocobella wood grips, or did he put others on it.. Most important have you shot it..
Elgoo, get some snap caps, like some wise person has already mentioned and then balance a dime flat side down of course, on the front of the gun near the front sight and sit and keep pulling that trigger, your goal is to be able to consistantly pull the trigger and not have the dime fall off. IT's just practice, practice, practice.
work on it with a bb or pellet gun. Concentrate on trigger pull and breathing and try to not anticipate the "firing" of the gun. I think shooting a bb gun would be more fun than snapping caps anyway, and cheaper.
I think you need to fire a lot of live ammo. Do you use ear pro and eye pro? If not, you're stupid. Don't be stupid. Nobody likes stupid. Be smart. Use ear and eye pro. Did I mention that you're stupid if you shoot without eye and ear pro? Use eye pro and ear pro and shoot a lot, concnetrating on keeping the sight picture even after the shot. You can really tell guys who are doing it correctly when they shoot without blinking.
Oh, and use eye and ear pro. Otherwise you're stupid.
