    When I was in basic training in the U.S. Army, the acronym we were taught was "BATS," for breathe, aim take up the slack and squeeze.
    We were told to exhale half of your breath and hold the rest until you fire.
    Some teachers of marksmanship say you should be exhaling slowly as you squeeze the trigger.
    I've practiced it both ways and it makes little or no difference, so I take three deep breaths and exhale half of the third.

      Very true 99, but what would you rather think about BATS or BRAS?

          Quinton after you have mastered the handgun fundamentals, you will want to move up to large calibers. That is were the fun/skill starts. After you experience a few heavy recoils you might/will start anticipating the recoil. "Flinching" just like there is no crying in baseball there is no flinching in shooting. The best way to see if you developed this is have a friend load several empties in a revolver. Hand it to you. You might see when you fire an empty chamber your hand will jerk downward.
          How do you correct this? First know it does not hurt, unless you smack yourself in the head. Second the same way you get to Carnage Hall, Practice, Practice, Practice.
