    MIA -after the scope every time you see a rubber glove you will flinch for sure. If I ever got to shot with you I would pull one on and snap it and watch your wheels fall off. LOL Mike

    Sorry I don't know any thing about flinching, and I can't shoot a release, but 12-15 lb set sounds way to high to me, a friend that shoots a release has his set in the 5-5 1/2 lb range

    It just goes to show ya that increasing the set pressure has its' limitations. Very crisp set- about 6-7 lbs. with gun in open position-may be the answer. Longer set travel may contribute to your problem. A good psychiatrist who has expertise in the sports area and hypnosis has worked for some. You are among many!!

    The success of both pull and release shooters in trap prove either method works. Pull triggers work well for other shotgun games not allowing release triggers also. Shooting many thousands of rounds at trap, a lot of people shoot by timing alone and problems arise. They may be looking at, but, not actually seeing each target with the intensity required to break them consistently. Choice of trigger method used won't matter much in that case either. If that's true, there must be another answer that has to be solved by each individual. The easier the chore, the more the mind lull factor comes into play inviting lazy shooting ethics creating all kinds of other problems? Hap

    Hey Jack !!!!! When you get the pull trigger down pat I'll have you pull my finger. LOL

    I'm sure you'll find a solution.

    Why don't you just buy a gun like my 99 that you don't have to set until just before you call for the target?
