I would suggest that range time is the cause for it since the flinch is the anticipation or attempted compensation of recoil. Dry-firing, however will cure it.BiggDogg said:The only thing that will help with flinching or anticipating the shot is range time.

gringop said:A good drill is to load some dummy rounds in with your live rounds while you are at the range. I take 2 dummy rounds and 4 live rounds and shake em up in my hands, then load the mag without looking. I load 2 mags for 12 rounds total.
If you have a friend shooting with you, have him load the mags.
The whole idea is to not know when you will get a live round or a dummy. Slowly shoot a group for accuracy with each mag. You will see where you are moving the gun when you get to the dummy rounds. Just eject the dummy round manualy and keep shooting. Figure out why you are moving the gun and correct it.
When your sights don't move off the target when you click a dummy round, you are doing it right.
I have been shooting competitivly for 15 years and I still do this drill at every practice. It really works well.
I got it from Saul Kirsch's book Perfect Practice.

Nothing wrong with calling it a day and coming back fresh next time.
