4 Dry-Fire Drills to Challenge Any New Shooter

Posted by Ivan Gelo

The concept of dry-fire (or for those purists out there, we can use the term dry-practice) is often dismissed by many but also inversely and unfortunately overused by others. (For example: Due to some law-enforcement (LE) agencies’ ammunition budget constraints, dry practice is often the big replacement for live fire.) In a perfect, money-is-no-object world, dry-fire should compliment as much live fire as time and funds allow.

Dry-practice should also be a fairly significant and useful portion of your training package—especially when learning a new technique or focusing on specific principals like the four below.

3 Easy Dry Fire Drills to Do at Home

Posted by Team Springfield

Mar 10, 2017 8:13:24 AM

Do harsh winter conditions or a full schedule keep you from getting to the shooting range as often as you'd prefer? For us too, but that shouldn't mean you can't get in a little practicing. Dry fire practice can be an important (and better yet, inexpensive) part of your training. And it's convenient because you can do it in the comfort of your own home.

As always, unload the firearm (check and double check to ensure it's unloaded) and remove all ammo and distractions from the room. Close your curtains, and get to work! It's easy and useful to log some practice reps by dry firing.

Here are a few drills to get you started.

Worlds Collide: Return To Alignment

Posted by Rob Leatham

Aug 9, 2016 5:14:00 PM

When you're firing rounds in rapid succession, your accuracy will be dependent on how well you can return the gun to alignment. Much too often we make it about focusing on the front sight, when it really should be about getting the gun back into alignment

That's why perfecting the timing of recoil control and returning forces is critical.
