How many here dry fire at all or regularly?

That’s how I started decades ago. Now I just refuse to watch it.

But hearing that click while on pig face nancy or moochelles wife is quite calming :grinning:
Try draw and fire when a rat pops up on the boob tube.

When I work from home, I dry fire during meetings. One time I wasn’t on mute and someone asked what the sounds were coming over the phone :flushed:

I don’t do it enough but need to practice more dry firing. Do y’all use snap caps when you dry fire?

I don’t . You’ll never harm a quality centerfire gun by dry fire. If I dry fire a rimfire that states not to dry fire I use a piece of spent brass to cushion the hammer and rotate it each time.

I’m getting into pistol competitions like USPSA and IDPA, and some of the seasoned guys were telling me to dry fire. I now do draw and dry fire practices for about 30 mins every other day. I have noticed a big improvement on draw speed, target acquisition, and hits on target when I have range sessions.

I don’t use snap caps with my center fire guns, but use spent brass for the rimfires.

Being a Cyber Security person… they know that there are little voices in my head and that I do Costco runs for tinfoil for my hat. :pleading_face:

RF fabric is much more effective, more comfortable and affords more ability to blend in under a Bears cap

No snap caps for me, only in rimfire guns. and been doing it for a long time, with NO problems. Some of my firearms have over 50,000 rounds thru them, and 3 times that in dry firing.

When I used to compete regularly I dry fired every day.
But now I use airguns instead.
They have a distinct advantage over dry fire.
They make actual holes in the targets.
Much more realistic and effective practice.

Air guns are a great idea @g.willikers! You must be really good at drywall repair by now. :rofl:

I’m not sure when, but I was on Camp Sullivan, it was 5 or 6 years ago. Somebody doing dry fire exercises in his room, found out the hard way he wasn’t doing a dry fire. The man he hit recovered and returned to the project.
