Obviously I am not shooting as much as I should, something I hope to rectify with my new range membership but at the range on Sunday I was shooting at 6" metal targets at roughly 10-15 yards and I was hitting at least 3 of the 6. I handed the gun to my GF and she could hit 6 for 6, this is a 45acp btw, on my last volley I noticed I shoved the gun forward on an empty chamber so I figured I was anticipating recoil. The same thing happened at the rifle range. What are some of the drills you fellas use to overcome this?

I sometimes resort to the Mudgett drill when I'm coaching shooters who have some problem with "anticipation" or "flinch" or whatever someone wants to call it. Mudgett developed some drills that can help correct the problem, and I've used them successfully. Rather than have me try to reword this article, here it is:
This has cured any problem I've encountered with handgun shooters who anticipate the recoil. It's a little weird at first, putting the instructors hand inside the trigger guard of the handgun someone else is holding, but it works.
