We have all heard it many times over "dry fire practice matters." Well I'm here to tell you that that is correct. However, dry fire practice must be correctly or else you're just trowing away an opportunity for solid reps. The first thing that must be taken into account is what you're mindset is when you're practicing. What do I mean by that? Well, if you have a "scenario" mindset you'll most likely end up getting into an involved scenarios in your mind that has too many moving parts to it. When it come to dry fire practice, simple is best.
Remove all ammo from the weapon and from your person. Put them in another room and leave them there until you're ready to load your firearm and put it back in its "ready spot' in your home. In my case, when I dry fire practice on the range I actually suit up with all of my shooting paraphernalia. Why? Because as soon as I'm done with my dry reps I go right into live practice without a break. I don't want to waste the automaticity I've built up. Dry fire reps truly can yield a lot of performance increase if you faithfully put in the work. Do it right and you can stretch a box of ammo for quite some time.
