Blinking

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

Really bad for rifles?

Concerning your ???

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????

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.

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.

Yes, these snap caps are machined out of a piece of solid billet aluminum, & are to spec of factory ammo.

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..

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.

blinking

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.

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!

To stop blinking

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.
