Brownbear (in another thread) got me thinking about training a new shooter, particularly with respect to preventing development of flinching from too much noise or recoil and in general of avoiding learning bad habits.
I am primarily focused on handguns, but if anyone wants to address long guns (and how recoil management differs from hanguns) they are welcome, too.
I manage my recoil issues by mixing high-power and low-power loads in my cylinder's chambers randomly or leaving a spent round in one or more chambers while I shoot. That way, I plainly see if I am flinching when I drop the hammer on the dud. I also regularly switch between 22rf and the more powerful pistols (both revolver and self-loader).
What do y'all do? Especially for new shooters?
Thanks in advance.
