    I would like to know the difference between a flinch and a crossfire. Sometimes my brain tells my trigger finger to pull the trigger but there is a cordination problem. I get all screwed up. Anybody with any ideas? Thanks in advance. Dan

    A flinch is when the brain won't cooperate with the finger or vise-versa.

    A crossfire is when you fire at the target using the wrong eye so it isn't where you think it is.

    There is no comparison, the cross firing can cause flinching!

    there are several causes for flinching like, bad gun fit, shooting technique,
    mental endurance, physical condition, age.!

    If you take action to find out the cause, with a correct drill, you can solve the problem,.
    If you keep shooting without to solve the problem, the flinching becomes chronic.

    In this stage it is very hard to fix it so the release trigger will be the option
    to keep the shooting acceptable.

    The release will not fix the flinch, only will attenuate it.
