Due to the great ammo shortage of ’09, a lot of people were looking for other ways to keep up with their firearm training.
One of the biggest things was to switch to shooting a .22. This is evident by the slew of .22-based firearms or conversion kits that hit the market in the past year, especially in the EBR market.
While there’s a lot of benefit to using a .22, it’s not a perfect substitute. Just like while dry fire is a fantastic training tool and something you should regularly, there’s just some things it cannot do. ToddG takes a look at what training with a .22 can and cannot do. My only disagreement is on failure drills… it’s .22 LR and you’ll probably get to practice a lot of those. 😉
