Thread: How Often Do You Practice With Your Carry Weapon??

  1. Every week for me. I belong to a shooting league. It is a defensive shooting league. Can never get too much practice.

    Every time I go shooting, especially if there's no one else at the range. There's alot you can practice if you're the only one there...

    I don't know much about AS guns as far as what all is out there. Do you know the namebrand of the ones you use, or possibly have a link? Very interested!

    I fire as often as I can. I just walk out back and set up a target and shoot away. If it's raining or sometimes at night I shoot in my workshop. I have a bullet trap I made years ago and it will stop any handgun round and small cal rifles.

    I chose daily, becuse it didn't specify live fire.

    I live fire at least once a week, usually a couple of times, but I dry fire at least a few minutes every day.

    This is the one I use. Almost the identical weight of my Kimber. The blow-back slide on it will help in re-aquiring the target. It doesn't have a lot of kick to it, but will disturb your sight picture enough that you will have to get back on target before your next shot.

    I really think these are a great training tool, especially for those who can't get to the range enough.

    How often I practice

    Try to shoot once a month. Draw and dry fire, with an empty gun of course, as often as I can.

  8. I shoot a couple of times a month. All shooting is drawing from concealment.

    rabywk, thanks for the link - it got me started. Here is what I found - its supposed to be the best airsoft Glock replica there is. For $150-$175, it better be.

    I'm thinking seriously about getting one of these. That would turn the garage into a low on ammo/bad weather close quarters range. I know this can't replace the real thing - its just a supplement - but it definitely would have its advantages here and there over using a real gun for dry firing and drawing practice.

    This isn't a Glock-exclusive thing, either. There are several companies I have found in the last day or so that make pretty good replicas of alot of different pistols.

    I have to agree here......if for no other reason of building muscle memory and task memory. Drawing from your holster, sweeping off the thumb safety, moving to the two handed grip and alining the sights on the intended target. All done without the fear, of the real gun going off accidentally, and sending a real round womeplace where you dont want.

    Until recently I was going at least once a week. I would go on Wed. during lunch and then sometimes on the weekend. I liked going at lunch because there were maybe 2 other people if that and I didn't feel rushed to give up the spot to someone else waiting. But I've been really busy and haven't been to the range in weeks. Once I get settled in Tampa I will get back on a shooting schedule as my work schedule will be flexible so that I can go whenever I want.
