2012-07-31 dry fire practice
Week 3, Day 2, SHO (all drills SHO)
- 20 reps of wall drill from press-out
- 10 reps draw & fire, slow
- 10 reps draw & fire 3/4 speed
- 5 reps reload from slidelock, slow
- 5 reps reload from slidelock 3/4 speed
- 5 reps TRB
- 5 reps LRW
- 10 reps wall drill from press-out
All drills are strong-hand-only. So I reckon that means the weak-hand is 100% not involved. So all those reloads, all those malfunction clearances, one hand only. This is where a good rear sight like a Dawson Precision Charger is quite useful.
This is also illustration that while these skills are unlikely to be something you generally need, there’s merit in knowing and practicing them but with perspective. Note the skill is only worked once in the 4-week session (well, twice technically since you’ll do it again WHO next week), and when it is worked, it’s not worked for many reps. This way you don’t ignore the skill completely, but you also don’t spend more time than is warranted, instead spending that finite time on highly important skills like the press-out.
But of course, this is just a generalized routine. Your goals may necessitate a different approach. I think it’s a good template to start with, and eventually I’ll refine and change it to suit my needs.
