I just talked to my doctor about it. He prescribed "propranolol" which i believe
he referred to as a "beta blocker". It is helping a lot. Little shakes, or "tremors"
were even starting to affect my handwriting. He also has me scheduled to see a neurologist
to make sure there is nothing else going on.

Ask your doc. May be a simple fix.

I also get the shakes too, I think many of us do as we age. I mostly target shoot too. I started using a rest a few years ago which helped a lot.

I can't drop my meds without serious repercussions. I refuse to give up my 2 cups of coffee a day. On the bright side I don't drink soda and such. I'm gonna have to try a brace.

I shake every time I try to do something.
I started learning to point shoot and it does work for me.

Being an ol' Kentucky boy (now a proud Hoosier), I have a friend who sometimes grows more corn than he can use. Rather than let that corn go to waste, he has an old secret family recipe that allows him to turn that excess corn into a clear delicious liquid elixir with amazing properties.
If you take a big sip of that elixir and wait just few minutes (time enough for your vision to clear and your breath to return) you'll notice that the shakiness is gone! Luckily, it's not a cure and the shakes do return, so you must repeat the treatment from time to time.

Everything Tincup said plus blood sugar. When my blood sugar gets outof wack I can't hold still. Not paint shaker bad but enough that a can't turn a flat head screw. Smaller meals throughout the day helps. Your results may vary. I'm not a real doctor, I just pretend to be one on the internet.

Another thing worth noting as a boxer and a mechanic. Broken hands shake. Im young, to young for shaking. But my knuckels all go in strange directions. My wrists have been fractured many times. I finally learned to be still. Then hold still. Then shoot still. Square up. Get a comfortable grip. Lock those wrists if you have to. And shoot. I doubt i could compete anymore. Hands are too beat up. But i still shoot my xd in 45 3-4 times a week. Breathing and just learning to refocus my body eliminated most of the shake. I found alot of it was coming from my core. Poor posture. Akward muscle locations in my shoulders. Best thing to do is stand up. Get comfortable. Get into shape. And figure out where your shakes originate. I probably wont be able to shoot much in 10 years with my hands. But in the next 10 years you can bet ill perfect my technique.

Honestly i think finding the origin of the shakes helps a ton

I was a mechanic for many years. Lots of busted knuckles and hands. Wrecked my back in 87 taking the heads off an F250 diesel. Gradually had quit turning a wrench. Messed up my back again in 89 bad enough that my wife (this was before we got married) had to help me go tothe bathroom. Now I have a hard time working on my own stuff.

Wait till arthritis sets in. I can't stand for more than 15 minutes or sit for too long. I wake up several times during the night to reposition in my sleep.

I'm always in pain these days but I'm trying to lose weight again. Doing aqua aerobics once a week and riding my bike when I can and all this has been helping a little.

Getting old sucks and I'm only 52.

As far as what Tincup said - caffeine, nicotine - all the drugs he mentioned...
I'm pretty much on all that!!

I still manage not to shake too much.

And I'm a lot like Tolly above there - with my back and knees.
It's hard for me to stand for very long too.
The last time I went to the range to shoot my JHP, I had a hell of a time standing for very long.

Next time I go I'm thinking i'll take a chair and try sitting and shooting.
I'll have to change the height of my brass-catcher!!

At this point Hobbles that 'A' word might be the culprit. :cry: I picked up a couple of my pistolas from the lightest to the heaviest and aimed them at my favorite living room wall aiming spot and no wavering for me ....yet. :wow:

This is exactly the problem I have.
This is what the neurologist said. Focus tremors.
http://www.experienceproject.com/storie ... nds/958416

The med the doc gave me controls it. Propranolol.
The neuro wanted me to take a stronger dose than the doc
had prescribed, but in time release. I found that it kept me
awake. Went back to the lower dose and discovered that taking
it every other or third day controls the tremors just fine.

I've found three things that help. First, regular everyday curls. I don't go for weight, but I do go for quantity. 20 LB weights, I do 5 sets of 20. With a light weight 5-10 lbs, I do wrist curls, again 5 sets of 20. Finally, a rubber ball. I squeeze it constantly. IF you can't do 5 sets, do what you can, but the idea is do more tomorrow.
