Training at home

Postby Jason » Sun May 01, 2011 7:16 pm

I've been looking at ways to improve dry fire drills at home.

One option would be a device like this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004GF ... d_i=507846 . Basically, a small laser goes into your pistol of choice and when you pull the trigger it activates for a moment, leaving a "mark" on the target. There are a few different systems out there; this one seems affordable but also on the cheap & small side.

http://www.jarheadtop.com/Beamhit_Equipment.htm looks a little nicer but is a bit more expensive.

Anyone have any experience with these, or similar? Any thoughts in general on the idea?

I'm definitely not against them....but I have no experience to with any laser trainers to speak form.
These seem to add an extra dimension to "dry" training and that can't be a bad thing.

it looks interesting , but I think you better train yourself without it , you are unintentionally going to train your self look for that same target . the best dryfire approach probably is to set up a similar target that you are expecting to shoot depending on what type of shooting discipline your into.
shooting is repetitive sport , the more you do it the more you become better .

One thing that I still do is dry fire with a snap cap with a dime on the rib or top of slide. The object of course is to dry fire without dropping the dime.

Just my $.02.
Thanks Pop
