I managed to get out of work a little early yesterday and got some 100 yard range time in.
My buddy was there and he knows I am not the best marksman and he also knows I suffer from flinching.
He offered to help... got me set in firing position and asked me to let him examine the rifle... he worked the bolt and unbeknownst to me, pushed the loaded round back into the magazine.
He asked me to send one downrange... and I am embarrased to say how badly I flinched when the gun did not go off - when I pulled the trigger.
We did this over and again - each time with me not knowing if a round was chambered or not - and it helped - A LOT!
Maybe this is an old trick - but I was not aware of it... and loved it.
Takes two at the range... but it is worth it.
