    Recently I moved to a lighter beretta al391 over a citori special trap with a recoil reducer. The beretta is a little shorter and I swing it better on the angles. But, on certain straight away or slightly angle targets I start off with a good move but at the last second I jump it and blow completely over it. It's not a flinch, I dont Know what it is. Any response is appreciated.

    Sounds like a flinch to me. But just to clarify, are you saying that you have an involuntary movement just before you pull the trigger or are you saying that you are over swinging the gun?

    Try holding the trap gun a tad closer to the trap house. I do the same thing on straight-aways if I hold too high. Good luck.

    Lunging at or "poking" at target often times is caused by LOP being too short.

    Thanks everyone I thought about a barrel weight but Im trying to fix the problem without spending any money. wolfram: I see the target alright but I make a really fast move to it and pull the trigger too quick.
    Tron: recently I tried holding the gun a little lower and I didn't notice myself doing it but I did that for only about 50 shots.
    Thanks to all

    Maybe your lifting your head and really shooting below the target. I do that all the time when I try to get to fast.
