Here is the problem. My wife has developed a flinch due to rifle sound. I do not think it is a recoil flinch. You can plainly see the flinch after the shot. If you know how to cure problem or know of someone that knows how to solve it. Please contact me. Thanks Daniel

Go to a 22LR. Have her use it over a few sessions. Then move up to something very mild. A suppressor on a heavy 308 is an excellent teaching tool if you have one.
Wear foam plugs and good muffs. Howard Leight foam plugs from Amazon have the most sound reduction. Compare the muff ratings and buy the max. Have her remove her ear rings and make sure her hair is out of the way so there is a good seal.
I would be happy to help if you are in the Austin area at some point.

I thought the loud boom was disturbing my wife as well, not so. It was trigger pull and recoil. She could not shoot my gun accurately at all, it pulled at 5 pounds. She had to almost tug on the trigger. Then I got her her own heavy barrel 243, put in a Timney set at 2 pounds. Now she shoots as accurately as I do.
A problem that I see with a lot of lady shooters is that guys get them youth model rifle and they get the crap beat out of them. My wife's heavy gun helps on recoil and the lighter trigger made a world of difference. The heavy gun is no issue lugging around, she is petite and will walk the 1/4 mile to the blind without any issue at all.

1st- dry fire the snot out of the rifle if it's a center fire rifle. Work on the fundamentals during this dry firing. Then progress to a 22LR for live round practice. Before each firing session, dry fire. Also, have someone load the rifle and close the bolt where she can not see if it's a live round or not and work on the same firing fundamentals. It will cure it, but it takes dry firing practice.

She is already wearing plugs & muffs and has been for several years. She is shooting a 7-08 that she has had for 10 years or longer. She can & does shoot 3/4 in groups with it. The flinch (what ever it is-recoil or sound) has developed within the last 2 years or less.

Tactical cowboy, age & eyes is all that I can think of. She used to wear contacts now glasses. She has always been afraid of being "scoped".

Reduced Recoil loads to see if that helps also.

Brother in Law, trigger pull is approx. 2.5 on her rifle. The handgun is another issue but has been sent to S&W to get that changed, should be back next week.

Dune2218, I don't think that is the problem. She will out sit most men when it comes to sitting in a deer blind, example: Nov 2014, NW Missouri, Coldest temps on record in 100 yrs but she sat in a pop-up with blowing snow from dark to dark, next day temps were same but no snow, she killed a big old 10 pt in sub zero wind chill temps.

Yall out to drive up and spend a day with JGFireman and take his class before your elk hunt. I've been hunting/shooting for 35+ years and have always been a decent shot, but a few hours of instruction with Jason really helped me identify and improve bad habits like flinching, poor trigger control, etc. -- you'll both walk away a lot more confident at any distance, short or long. Plus he's a heck of a good guy and a lot of fun.
