Dry Practice

SSGT LogoDry PracticeTraining – What is it?

Dry Practicetraining is learning new skills with the assistance of a trainer without ammunition.  This is where proper technique is developed and confirmed.  In a Dry Fire environment, each element can be examined in an isolated way.  This is much more productive than trying to do this with live ammunition.  Without a skilled trainer present, training scars (bad habits) can be created and reinforced.  To establish a habit requires 300 to 500 repetitions.  To retrain a bad habit requires approximately 3,000 to 5,000 repetitions.  That is why it is so critical to learn and train using proper techniques.
