Just another Dry Fire question

Post by Magload on 4/12/2017, 6:35 pm

Just another Dry Fire question and I don't recall reading this one before.

I have a Desert Eagle 50AE air soft replicate that has a fairly good trigger.  Would there be any benefit practicing dryfire with it?  It just handy as I don't have to get it out of the gun box or the safe and can just pick it up and practice more often.  It also cuts back on wear of my BE pistols.  I know I don't dry fire enough and this would help.  Don

I think dry fire training is more than just pulling the trigger. I think the entire shot process should be executed for each dry fire shot. I know I need to train to maintain mental concentration as part of it. When I was seriously training, I did about 1,000 dry fire shots per week.
I usually use the 45 for my dry fire training- I think the heavier trigger is a better training aid. Also, some EIC iron sight and DR dry firing.
Unlike some others, I like dry fire training. I can do it on my schedule, and it's cheap! If I wear out a pistol (doubtful) I'll get another.

I have no shot plan or concentration.  Well being 70 I do have some what of a shot plan.  That is to make Master before I get to old.  That probably is going to happen with out the concentration or shot plan, but I have improved a lot in the 3 months I been trying this sport.  Don

I have been dryfiring with this (along with to a lesser amount the match guns) for 47 years.


My coach and mentor, LtC Miller gave it to me all those years ago.  Another drill was to pick off 22 brass at about 10-15 feet.  It has done me no harm. The training from it is for ME to see and stay on the front sight, keep it in alignment, and press the trigger and follow through.  It isn't really about the gun.  It's about me.
