Better that way than developing a nasty flinch because of being too proud.
Could be- - but - - a flinch can develop no matter what.
I developed a flinch once when shooting a .22.
Not much of anything lower than that except dry fire!

The curious thing about it is - - shooting my S&W M29 .44 mag w/a 4" barrel cured the flinch in less than 6 shots.

I learned a valuable lesson from that.

It's not recoil at all that causes a flinch.
It's getting lazy & forgetting all the basics.

Once you go back to using the basics - and the heavy recoil forces you to pay attention - the flinch disappears.
