And it can be hysterical.
Had a friend years ago with a level action 30-30 that I could
see the hammer move out the side of my eye as I pulled the
trigger. I flinched four or five times before it fired.
I could not hit the side of a mountain. Finally pulled out
my M1911 and could nail everything at about 50 yards free
standing. (My M1911 is very accurate and have a great
OK, I'm presuming that what you mean by that is that if there's no
recoil of the gun when the trigger is pulled, then any movement of the
barrel has to be due to the shooter flinching.
My understanding is that in the sport of skeet shooting, some people use
special triggers called "release triggers". Unlike normal triggers,
release triggers fire the gun when the trigger mechanism is released.
That's supposedly to prevent the pulling of the trigger from causing
flinching and subsequent movement of the shot gun barrel. I know that
because I import stuff from the USA into Canada fairly frequently, and
there was one guy I met at the Canada Border Services Office who was
wanting to import a release trigger for competitive skeet shooting, and
the border guard was having trouble finding the right B3 classification
number for such a thing. I ended up talking to the guy, and he
explained to me that it was a special kind of trigger that fired the gun
when you released the trigger, not when you pulled it, and that was
meant to minimize flinching, and hence improve his shooting accuracy.
It was apparantly worth several hundred dollars.
Yup. It can be pretty historical. [braggart alert] I can see
the fireball out my M1911 [/braggart alert]
Interesting. First I have heard of it. I wonder how
much effect that would have on your accuracy?
On my M1911, the trigger pull is really heavy:
around 9 lbs. But it has not travel, so it
fires when you apply enough pressure, but you
can't feel it move, so no flinching.
Swing around at me and I would tell you to get a new
friend. Don't ever point a gun at anyone, loaded or
otherwise. If you ever see two guys looking at each other's
guns, watch how they always point them away from anyone,
even when they know they are empty.
When a round doesn't go off, even when you think it
shouldn't, such as a deliberate dud load, you keep your
weapon pointed downrange for a bit, then eject the dud
still pointing downrange, and then continue pointing
downrange. Defective rounds have been know to delay
fire. I have never come across one myself, but ...
I have had powder in my hair from el-cheap-o wad
cutter reloads purchased from the range. Those
your can really see the fireball before blinking.
But even those have always fired. I will take
no chances though.
Because no one is likely to act out when they know others can
defend themselves. Look where all the mass shootings
happen. They are always free shooting (gun free) zones.
More guns, less crime. Exception: burglary when the
premises are unattended.

You are of course correct. The point that Unquestionably
is making is reality of the current situation we are
facing. Until the constitution is respected, this is a
good first thrust. Time for the good guys to use the "Slippery
Slope" for a change.
Did you see the Dredd Scott ruling I posted? Did you
see where the supremes said that if you were a real
man, you'd have to right to pack anywhere you pleased?

Well, I could tell you about the time I kicked my toilet with my leg,
but no gun was involved and I don't work at a school.
Still, it's a good story.
