Guys, if you can dry fire the gun without pulling the sights off your target, all you have to do is do the same thing with ammo in the gun.....right?

Even if you can stand on your head and shoot the gun with your left foot, as long as the sights are aligned on the target and you squeeze/press/pull the trigger without moving the sights off the target, the shot will be good.

The hard part is getting the trigger to fire the gun without moving the gun. You can have the sights aligned on the target perfectly all day, but if you don't pull the trigger correctly (like you do when you dry fire), you miss.

Get some dummy rounds and do as I describe in my blog, they will let you see how you are pulling the trigger....something that you can't see when firing live ammo due to recoil and muzzle blast.
