Yea, I suck, but I do know what I'm doing wrong. I'm tightening my grip just as the gun fires, which is just another form of anticipating recoil.

dammit!!!!!

well it looks like Daveil won the pot and as there was only 4 shooters for the handgun he won $4.

The Rifle compition had 3 people, but do to one individual firing more than the alotted 6 rounds and using a different target, he was disqualified. The rifle went to Jeff for $3.

Once you get the feel of the weapon it will become easier to handle ... It's all in your head about the gun coming back and hitting you, You have to make sure you let the horse know who the boss is ,,,,,,, Well there are a few exceptions to that rule .... A Contender ( comes in many cals ) might just hit you in the head If you are using a big game load . A .44 mag. might in a novice's hand and a few others .... Most people will tend to drop the very hard kicking pistols before it hits them Try a Contender and a .45 .40 cals will seem like a .22

I personally have a problem with revolver's ,,,,,They have always made me flinch/blink Just to damn sparky,snappy, sounding for me..
