Indeed. I was in the "jerking" zone when I first started, mostly because of "BANG!" expectation. With some dry-firing practice and a few trips to the range I was able to really zero in on my targets.

I guess I forgot to mention that I'm a left handed shooter.

Dry practice. Get that muscle memory used to not "twitching" before that round goes off. Watch your sights and if they move when you "click", you're anticipating in one form or fashion. Keep dry practicing until those sights are rock-solid-still all the way from the squeeze through the "click". Hit the range and before you shoot, do the same dry practice 5 times, to get you "ready". Then go live with ammo.

One thing to do while at the range is put a blank in the mix with your mags so when you pull the trigger on the blank you can really see which direction you are pulling or pushing the muzzle.

You mean a snap cap not a blank right?
