Anticipatory flinch is when the barrel is pushed down in anticipation of the round going off to try to counteract recoil, which is one of the most, if not the most common problem that shooters of all skill levels have.

The Absolute Rights newsletter explains, that the most effective way to get the best information on the subject is to take the short course that “Advanced Armament” offers at aaccanu.com, the AAC Can University. The newsletter remarks, that it only takes about 5-10 minutes to get through the entire course, which offers a diploma for a "Bachelor of Silence" degree. Silencers do not silence a weapon, they only suppress the sound level of a firearm, reports the Absolute Rights newsletter.
The Absolute Rights newsletter also reveals in the first part of a two part series on suppressors, that there has been a shift in the industry moving away from calling silencers, to suppressors. The reason that silencers have been renamed, discusses the series by David Morris, is that when a firearm discharges, particularly a semi-automatic firearm, there are several sources of noise:
1) The bolt/slide assembly going backwards, the spent round being extracted, and the next round being loaded.
2) The muzzle blast.
3) Bullets traveling faster than roughly 1150 feet per second will break the sound barrier and cause a sonic boom.
4) The sound of the mechanical percussion that ignites the round.
5) The sound of the round hitting a target.
Absolute Rights newsletter writes, suppressors actually suppress the sound of muzzle blasts, and don't affect the other 4 factors, but simply suppressing the muzzle blast can often mean the difference between needing to wear hearing protection to shoot or not.
Suppressors use the same noise suppression concept as car mufflers, explains the Absolute Rights newsletter, in fact they were developed at the same time. The terms "silencer" and "muffler" are used interchangeably, with respect to both technologies in many parts of the world, reveals the Absolute Rights newsletter. The newsletter explains that both allow the expansion of gases inside of a container rather than in the open air, and just as there are several non-tactical benefits to using an automobile muffler, there are several non-tactical benefits to using a suppressor, in addition to the tactical.
The Absolute Rights newsletter says, that when you consider the fact that suppressors decrease sound levels, improve accuracy, reduce felt recoil, and reduce muzzle flip, it quickly becomes clear that they are almost the perfect tool to use when introducing a new shooter to the sport, particularly young shooters and females who may be apprehensive of firearms in the first place.
Students will be able to hear range commands easier since they don't have to wear ear protection, adds the newsletter, they won't be as afraid of the blast & recoil as they might be, and the reduction of muzzle flip leads to a significant reduction in anticipatory flinch. The Absolute Rights newsletter explains, this is when the barrel is pushed down in anticipation of the round going off to try to counteract recoil, which is one of the most, if not the most common problem that shooters of all skill levels have.
