My current dry fire drill

Road construction derailed my trip to the local range earlier this week. Now what? For me it becomes 25 good dry fire reps. Recently I started using the second drill shown in this video- the empty shell method(keep a couple in your pocket to keep the drill moving). You get a few ancillary benefits from this drill:

  • You must hold the gun steady the whole time or the shell will fall
  • Include presentation in your reps. This requires a ton of stability the entire time you clasp the support hand and raise the pistol to your sight picture. This practice can help if you have to take a close-proximity defensive shot or shoot from a restricted position- like inside your vehicle
  • Trigger press needs to stay smooth throughout this drill- that balancing shell is not going to stay upright
