dammit!!!!!
Tightening your grip is not necessarily anticipation... it could also be heeling.

When you start with a strong-hand (shooting hand) grip that is too tight already, the muscles of your hand contract as you pull the trigger. The grip on the gun itself should be front to back, the tips of your fingers should not be touching the grip until you place your support hand on the grip. Your grip should be nice and firm with the strong-hand providing 40% of the support, and your support hand providing 60%. Your support hand grip is side-to-side and controls the torque.

My issue is slightly different. I shoot with my weak hand (I shoot left handed).

If you are left handed, that IS your strong hand.

Are you left-eye dominant and right handed? Then it's just a matter of practice. But... the grip doesn't change. The hand with the trigger finger is your strong, (Working, shooting, strong...) hand.

At least you are shooting left handed... most people cheat it. You are better off the way you are. It's just a matter of practice. But, your left hand is your strong hand when shooting.

You can exercise your shooting hand in your living room while watching TV. Practice with an empty gun, either with or without snap caps, and just dry fire it. (This exercise is more fun if you are watching MSNBC or one of those other liberal media outlets, then shoot the liberals every time they lie.) {BE SURE IT'S EMPTY!}

Dry fire it 100-150 times a day... or for 15-20 minutes a day. The practice is good for building the muscles needed to shoot straight! I put a coin on the rear sights and practice pulling the trigger without disturbing the coin.

If you want to fix a flinch,have a friend put a dummy round in your gun. You can't know where it is. Keep doing this drill. Your flinch will go away,because you will start to expect a missfire and you don't.want to look foolish in front of your friend.
