Dry Practice is a Great idea
February 29th, 2008
The dry practice exercise is a great idea. I am a life long believer in focused dry practice and have been using it to teach my two oldest grandsons (ages 10 and 13) to safely shoot Single Action Shooting Society type scenarios in my basement for just over six months now.
They had their first live fire with two single action pistols, a lever action rifle and a double barrel shotgun with external hammers a few weeks ago. I was amazed at how quickly and easily they grouped their shots on target with all three weapons. There was no fumbling with weapons, reloading, presentation, re-holstering, or muzzle safety issues. I attribute their success to the familiarity gained through hours of focused dry practice.
I did sign up for “Diggit” and recommended your site. There seems to be a need for pro-gun folks there to represent our side. I enjoy discussing the news with those who may view a story differently than I do. Informed and polite discussion can make friends of potential enemies. We just have to be ready to provide links when we quote Statistics, the Founding Fathers, or Court findings in the Law. Logic and reason can win converts and leave our “Emotion” driven opponents with little or no room to stand.
The videos are informative and fun to watch. If I pay close attention, I’m bound to learn something from your students!
Thanks again for the tips and advice.
