Putting some reps in this afternoon. Dry firing is something that has been extremely important in my practice regimen with firearms. A good deal of the proficiency I’ve gained with firearms has been when the guns are empty. Any top level shooter will more than likely tell you the same. Dryfire is where the skill sets are built. The range is where I go to validate those skills.
There are a lot of gadgets, do-dads, and whiz-bang accessories and enhancements out there for sale, and many of them serve a valid purpose. However, The cost associated with getting a smooth draw, a good trigger press, and good sight acquisition, is TIME. Which in my opinion is more valuable than money because I don’t know how much of it I have left.
The majority of my dry practice is not high speed operator shit. It is slow and deliberate. Maintaining those eye/hand coordination pathways in the brain, which is especially important if you’re running a red dot. I focus on establishing a good grip with the dominant hand before the pistol leaves the holster, drawing and paying attention to the little things: where my hands are marrying up, how level the pistol is driving out, prepping my trigger and the INSTANT I see my dot super imposed over the target, I take the trigger the rest of the way home. Focusing on good follow through, finding that second sight picture, then working my way back to the holster.
Enhancements that we make to our gun help facilitate our technique. Not the other way around.
