Why Dry Fire Training Is a Must
Dry fire training is one of the best ways to improve every single one of your firearms fundamentals. Hands down, dry fire drills and dry fire training systems improve your marksmanship and shooting skills. I’m sure the sound of it might not get you as excited as popping live rounds off down range. But dry firing pays HUUUGE dividends when it comes to improving stance, grip, trigger press, follow through, and pretty much every other fundamental of shooting.
Regularly conducting remedial drills is one of those things that separates a true professional from a poser. Think about it, hitting off the tee in baseball, taking jump shots from the block in basketball, juggling the ball in soccer, and on and on. These are all remedial drills that work on critical fundamentals. It’s one of the reasons that even major leaguers and professionals continue to practice using these types of drills even after they’re already considered to be the best in the world at their craft. Dry firing training is the same thing.
Benefits of Dry Fire Training
With shooting, and dry firing specifically, there are even more added benefits to dry firing. Let’s cover a few:
- It’s free! (assuming you already purchased a firearm)
- You can do it almost anywhere (after you follow some important safety steps)
- You can do it anytime (no loud noises disturbing anyone)
So let's get started! Get the guide emailed to you now. And use the videos below to start improving your skills.
How to Clear Your Gun with a Safety Check
This video below demonstrates the five-step safety check to ensure you have a safe and empty firearm. Conducting these steps in the proper order is not only the first firearms skill you should master, but should be so ingrained in your mind that it becomes a form of habit to perform every time you pick up a gun. Draw your weapon and follow the steps below, methodically, to perform your safety check and ensure your gun is clear.
1. Finger off the trigger
2. Weapon pointed in a safe direction
3. Remove the magazine or source of ammunition
4. Open the action / lock the slide to the rear
5. Visually and physically check to ensure there are no live rounds (do it again)
Whether you are dry fire training, heading to the range to practice, or clearing your weapon for proper storage in a gun safe or gun locker, follow these steps every time. Memorize these steps and make it a habit so firearms safety becomes second nature.
