    Dry practice is the key to perfecting all of your weapon handling skills and trigger control is arguably the most important fundamental in your marksmanship training. The GLOCK DRY-PRACTICE KIT allows you to continually and safely dry-practice correct trigger press and reset as much as you like without ever re-setting your action!
    Installing these kits is an inexpensive alternative to the Glock red training guns and can be used by individuals, clubs, instructors or law enforcement to help diagnose trigger control problems. When the GDPK is properly installed in your Glock pistol, it will not fire live ammunition and there is no possibility of damaging your gun.

    link... about 3/4 down the page.

    $55 shipped.

    Looks interesting... any opinions?

    A true waste of money. Useless.

    It doesn't take that much effort to pull the slide back a 1/4 to 1/2 inch to reset the trigger. The money would be better spent on a range trip or two IMO..

    Hmmm, I say it looks interesting (not saying I would buy it right now without some further research though). To me the issue if it is difficult to install or takes too much time. I think it makes sense in that, lets say, you are practicing drawing from a holster and you practice double taps, etc. Granted there is no recoil, but it is a heck of a lot better than retracting the slide a bit every time to reset. You really want to train your body to keep reaching for the slide to reset, I think not. It is fairly cheap, and as a LEO, I can see where it could come in handy doing draws from my holster and other "tactical" drills.

    Thats exactly why I want it.

    I wanted feedback other than "buy ammo and mags". Like... "I have one and it sucks" or "I really like mine"

    I did find this:

    Yes. It's a glock 22. No other parts needed.

    Sweet.. just what I was looking for.

    Is there a way to make the pull heavier?

    The pull weight is around 6 pounds on them when we ship them. It is pretty difficult to change them.

    I have one and do like it. Good tool.

    You're replacing the trigger group which is really simple on a Glock -especially if you've taken a class, or watched one of the many Glock armorer videos.

    Better to use on a second pistol, since by design it renders the gun inoperable. I'd hate to be an LEO and forget to swap the right trigger group back in my duty pistol.

    All of our newer kits have big red dots on each side of the trigger and another smaller one on the back of the trigger houising where it can be seen from the firing position. It would be pretty hard to not to notice that you had the wrong trigger in it.

    If you suffer from Anticipation push the way to correct it and gain total trigger control is dry fire practice. If the trigger resets itself then your pratice is more realistic.

    I wondered about that--I figured I'd just paint it.

    I guess that isn't necessary.

    Hardly useless. We used the red guns that reset automatically all the time at the academy. It's great for dry fire and I wish I had one. Helped immensely IMO.
