    Default How often do you dry fire?

    My current dry fire practice routine averages 3-4 times a week for at least 15 minutes... I want to make more time for it, though. It has really improved my handling and how well "the gun" points :-)

    Do you dry fire? How often? Any special drills?

    I don't dry fire at all. Every couple of weeks I spend an hour or so live firing. I do practice draw and point with an empty gun maybe once a week for a couple minutes, but don't actually pull the trigger. The range I shoot at does not allow movement when firing, so I also practice drawing and shooting on the move with an airsoft gun every couple of weeks as well. It's not ideal, but its better than no practice.

    Use snap-caps if you dry fire your sidearm. Otherwise, depending on the gun, you can damage it.

    Range rules are what got me interested in dry fire - I wanted to be able to work on drawing from concealment. My trigger control has improved over time too. I also do not get to shoot as much as I'd like... honestly, I would shoot every day if I had the ammo and time :-)

    I dry fire my actual gun a few times a week. I also have an Airsoft replica of my gun and I practice drawing and firing out in my garage a few times a week also.I had to add a little weight to the Airsoft to get it up to around the weight of the actual one.
