Sounds dirty I know. But .. when you shoot. Do you give it as strong as you can every shot? Are you more relaxed? I find that I need to give about 80% of my lung power when I shoot every time. This gives me a nice flat trajectory and I am not killing myself in the process. Any experts out there willing to weigh in?

If you apply air pressure forcefully (notice, I did not say, "blow hard" to set someone up for a joke....), you will, 'jerk', and it will throw your aim off. I use a controlled exhale, applying the most force just before the dart leaves the barrel. I will admit that this is probably easier on my 7' blowgun than on shorter ones. I shoot 2' groups at 15-25 yards.
Yes I have noticed that when I am blowing extremely hard the bg does tend to jerk. But if practiced enough you can find a balance of power and accuracy.
