I'd be more cynical, but my apathy prevents it.
"Why aren't you DRY FIRING?"
View attachment 862614 [QUOTE = "DienBienPhu, post: 29869842, member: 43146"] Uso una replica di una pistola ad aria compressa come strumento per fondere, disegnare e puntare a "fuoco secco", fanno repliche eccellenti che hanno l'aspetto e la sensazione di una vera pistola, salvo usura sulla mia vera pistola
a volte uso anche i cappucci a scatto, se prevedi di fare fuoco a secco estensivo usa un cappuccio a scatto, non consiglierei di sparare a secco e far cadere il vetrino sulle camere vuote della tua pistola da trasporto. [/ CITAZIONE]
If you are asking if the photo is right for a snap cap, yes.This right?
Thank you for your service! I go back many decades when there were height requirements and .357mag carry. IMO, trigger reset is as important as trigger pull, it's a hand in glove part of shooting, sport or critical situations. Also in my opinion, it's easier to go from revolver training to pistol training in becoming proficient.Interesting you posted this. I just got done doing draws and dry fire. Since my health dipped, last year, I’ve been too fat to get my duty belt on (former LEO). I decided to see if I could squeeze into it. Gladly, I got it on, not pretty, but it was on.
It’s amazing how smooth my draw is, out of my multi-retention duty holster. I didn’t even have to work at it, today. Just think it and the G22 was out and in my hand. Of course, this comes from years of practice on the same system (I’ve had this setup since 2013).
Before most shifts, I didn’t walk out the door until I had three smooth draws, in a row. If things were slow, I would pull over and draw to the ditch. We had offices shared with one other Deputy. My office mate and I usually worked different shifts. No one cared if we went to the office and practiced draws or dry fire.
ETA: Make sure you remove live ammunition, before practicing.
You need to post a picture of some of your national championship trophies, so you will have some credibility against everybody else with those trophies who all say dry firing is the key to mastering marksmanship.Dry firing is like masturbating to porn, and simulated driving games----something critical is missing. You are only practicing 1/2 or less of the "drill".
Yes you can dry fire all you want, but when your live ammo goes BANG, and your gun kicks, lo and behold, your trigger control, your mind, grip, and sight picture go to crap. So it can be incomplete and almost useless when in the real thing.
I noticed that a lot of the people I shoot with don't dry fire and it shows. So here's a video on some great methods I use 3x a week and also right before I leave my house so I'm warmed up. Plus when ammo is hard to come by this is a great tool to stay "frosty."
Can you cite any specific accounts? I can’t see how dry fire can put any stress what so ever on the breech face. Please elaborate where you got that info from. Sorry but that statement makes no common sense.

Mindset, skillset, toolset, in that order.
what i use and have so far is this:I have looked at that and think it is pretty good. They have a new one that has the MantisX incorporated into it. MantisX is a great system.
I am a firearms instructor and have the stuff to use in my classroom. In my apartment, I can get 33 feet from my target so that does me well. I have a few markings on the floor to indicate different distances.what i use and have so far is this:
and for my max available 20ft distance in the basement where my home office is - it works ok.
dunno if it would worth to invest into any 'systems' or other contraptions, as, yet, you can draw, you can work on pointing and hands stability, but, to throw a $100 for a mag like that - dunno. i do not mind to pull a slide and i do not think it damages it much, at all. it is a gun.
As a first car accident makes you to keep your distance- a first accidental trigger pull makes one respect the weapon.The only problem I have with dry firing is that I think is can lead to complacency and can make trigger pulling a mindless habit... with obvious consequences.
I'm sure it has a place in training, but I think making a "habit" of it is dangerous.
I dont understand how anyone can sit there and say practicing is bad, especially when it comes to a skill that involves life or death...but here we are.Why? Because in my view, it quickly reaches a point of diminished returns. Unless of course if you are a bullseye shooter. I am definitely not any sort of gun gamer or exhibition shooter. I am simply a guy who wants to defend himself in a fight. I have never had any problem maintaining meaningful accuracy over the decades and I have never experienced any sort of difficulty or problem related to combat accuracy (torso zone).
I will acquaint myself with the trigger of a new gun by dry firing the thing 8 or 10 times... thats it. The rest of the time it will be during training of when necessary to disassembly a weapon, check or render it safe.
If it makes you feel good.. fine. I certainly wont try and talk anyone out of sitting around dry firing. At the same time I am simply not inclined to believe that it is likely making people better fighters. Some people have a need for a tactical kabuki dance and perhaps dry firing is it.
In my opinion, being reasonably acquainted with a trigger is a box to be checked and then move on. I accept that some people are going to do stuff for the sake of doing it. I aint mad at them.
