Are you flinching? It sounds like its in your head.

I had a hard time with flinching when I started shooting, still do sometimes. The way I can always fix it is to just slowly press the trigger, I mean so slow I might take 5-10 seconds to break the shot, the idea is to just lightly press the trigger so you never quite know when the gun will fire. Also dry fire a lot.

I think the repetitions help me, but YMMV, its a mental game that you have to overcome.

Dry firing is the most important step in reducing your flince. When you go to the range you can also shoot into the berm without aiming at any one spot. Your total focus needs to be on the gun and see the front sight in great detail. Watch the front sight lift from the rear sight notch and come back down. This is to get you away from your focus on the target and back to the gun. By doing this you may also see things like brass coming from the pistol or muzzle flash ( both of which are good things).
