I dry fire a great deal. I spent thirty years in L.E., and back in the revolver days we were encouraged to dry fire in order to improve our trigger control. We were assured that it wouldn’t damage the gun.
Well, I guess they don’t make ’em like they used to because, since retirement, I have broken the firing pins of two revolvers and two semi-autos in spite of using top quality snap caps.
I hear you, when I started doing heavy dry fire with my Glock 17, I broke two (I think perhaps three) mag spring catches by hammering 1000s of reloads. That spring is a simple as it gets, a simple .050″ rod that bends at a prescribed arc (in the plastic slot in the front of the grip).
First time hearing about this SIRT program and guns! Sounds like a really good deal,
for someone that could afford it!!! I’m retired and on a very limited income! That said, I really enjoyed the videos!! Very informative. Thanks!
Now, all I have to do, is win the Glock 17.
Thank you for all of the info that you shared!!
I really love the SIRT pistols I’ve been using it every day since I became a US CC a instructor. Since I’ve been dry firing practicing consistently I just did my renewal for my concealed carry for Illinois I was surprised how the target I was on I am going to implement it into my training class and I’m looking at videos and I’m about to buy the laser training instructor program on the instructor portal on the USCCA. And thank you Mike
I am practicing magazine reloads. I added 2 slide releases right and left to my SIRT 365.
