It may say 1911 but you can use these drills with a plastic gun until you can get a real one.
Don't forget the 1911 practice rule... after 10 dry fire trigger pulls, disassemble pistol and dip in oil. Lather, rinse, repeat....
:lol3:

(this, of course, is only a joke)

Hay Utahcfp, it was a good thing I was not drinking anything, or it would have gone all over the place. I have to remember that one.

Good links. I think dry fire exercises are very much underutilized. They can do a lot for improving technique, skill, accuracy, etc. Shooting at the TV is a great way to practice.

I would strongly recommend following the advice to NEVER do dry fire exercises in the same room as ammo. Always physically separate the ammo from the weapon and there's no chance of having a negligent discharge.

Just one thing I thought I might mention. When I was at FrontSight, they heavily stressed dry practice. The method they recommended was to get a silhouette target and manually put it up each time you dry practice, then take it down when you are done. You are trying to ingrain reflexive skills and if you dry practice with a computer monitor, a TV, a family photo, etc. you ingrain your mind to want to dry practice when you see those things. I know it sounds ridiculous, but that's how people shoot their household objects. You reflexively just pull your gun from the holster for one quick practice shot and BOOM! Oops, that's right, the gun was loaded.

Having something to shoot at that you DON'T see everyday makes it less likely you will have a negligent discharge. My 40 cents.
