So blah blah blah real life blah blah etc. at any rate I haven’t had time or ability to shoot for six months or so. I have, however, been doing a fair bit of dry fire/dry fire laser cartridge stuff.

Today I finally got to make some noise. I was actually on a 20-25 yard line and didn’t embarrass myself, I did rather well for ME. I am a 10 yard max, maybe 15 yard pistol shooter. I was able to do fairly passable for 20-25 yards today with CZ SP01, HK P2000, and K22. The only thing I can attribute this to is my dry fire over the last few months.

At any rate I am comfortable knowing that I am at least MOA at a decent pace at this range. (Minute Of Asshole) Smile

Point is dry fire really does help. It’s not a substitute for live fire but it really can help.

So if you have time run some dry fire drills with your platform of choice. You may find it helps more then you imagine. (Obviously not a training revelation but it always amazes me how much it can supplement live fire)

Take care, shoot safe
Chris.

Glad you’re back in the saddle! Dry fire does help, but there’s nothing as satisfying as the bang and the gun smoke.

Any worthwhile instructor will tell you, you should be dry firing everyday. You should be doing much more dry fire training than live fire training.

I have a friend who is a USPSA RO who told me to practice 200 draws from the holster per day. I knew the importance of the draw but didnt want to wear the finish of my beautiful Sig. I will do that in the future along with dry fire practice.

This is where I'm at right now.
The past month has seen the death of my sister in law, my cousin and just a week ago my maintenance person. I have not had the time nor the motivation to go outside and shoot.
I have been practicing drawing from my holster and dry firing. I am finding the finish on the Glock 19X to be pretty durable drawing and reholstering in a leather set up.
I do however need to hear some noise soon.


I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not.

That is a rough on the heart month right there. Stay close to family and friends. Be ever grateful for the time we are givin. Sorry for your loss. Be strong and go forward.

If you are going to shoot competitively, or even just shoot a decent amount, you are going to have to come to grips with finish wear.

Thank you. I'm blessed to have a close family so we're getting through it.
Not trying to hijack your thread and I agree with your dry fire practice.

I second your testimony about dry fire! I've been working on front sight acquisition and trigger discipline. It translates directly to live fire, so far, need to keep practicing!
