Discussion of Front Sight's Dry Practice (Dry Fire) Techniques
This is a live Google Hangout with Richard Carlton, Product Manager of DryPractice.com LLC. In this video we talk about the basics of drawing your weapon properly (presenting the handgun) and discuss malfunction drills.
Tip #1 - Start Slow
When starting Dry Practice, do not rush. Make sure you start slow and perform the techniques correctly.
Tip #2 - Watch for Bowling
Most people have no idea how to properly present a handgun from the holster. They can get into bad habits fast. Bowling is one such bad habit.
Tip #3 - Finger on the Trigger
When learning to present a handgun from the holster, learning bad habits can slow you down...or can be downright deadly. Getting your finger on the trigger early is a fast way to earn a trip in the EMS helicopter.
Tip #4 - Hand on Midsection
Letting your support hand drift in front of the muzzle is a fast way to earn a trip in the EMS helicopter.
Tip #5 - Moving your Head
It is funny how many professional shooters on YouTube have bad handgun presentation skills. Maintain good follow-through by ensuring that your head does not "chase" the handgun. Also, keep focused on the sights after the shot(s) are fired.
