I have a confession to make. i haven't fired a shot out of my S&W 686+ for two months, more like 3. But i keep it in my office and i dry fire it a lot with the door closed. My secretary is used to it now. It's really good for breaking the mood whn I'm tense in some work, and It's good exercise for the arm, wrist and finder muscles. the big deal : follow through - after trigger pull, sight picture should be kept the same as before , for three seconds. I'm aiming aT the doorknob, and at the diploma. Wil ask my wife is I can dryfire against TV shows. This is fun. Any of you guys got into this habit?
