Gathered information about my courses and articles with shooting tips in one place.
Dry fire lasers make your dry fire trainings fun! I own iMarksman dry fire laser insert for some time and really happy with it.
You receive 9mm laser cartridge and 12 Gauge adapter. So you can use it for both your handgun and shotgun.
I don’t like plastic dummy rounds, they are expensive and they have light weight which makes them inappropriate for dry fire trainings.
Shotgun dummy rounds should be of the same weight and size as the live rounds. This way, you will have proper skills during dry fire trainings.
There are two best variants to get such dummy rounds for your shotgun. First is to make them yourself. If you have friends which reload shotgun shell you can ask them to make such dummy rounds for you. You just don’t add live primer and gun powder. That way you will have dummy round which has the same weight and size as live rounds.
Benelli Tactical Shotgun Training, Italy, Report, Part 2
Third stage was interesting…
We were working on Close Quarters Combat skills. It was shooting from the hip to a target which was located very close. Also, we were shooting at automobile doors, car hood and bulletproof vest (level 3). We were using buckshot at those targets.
The results were predictable. Buckshot came through the targets. We have used slugs on bulletproof vest. The slug haven’t got through the armor plates but the powerful hit will damage person dramatically.
My friend Artem Mitrofanov had an ultimate opportunity to visit and take part in Benelli Tactical Shotgun Training in Italy, motherland of Benelli shotguns. His report was so interesting that I decided to translate it for you (with approval from Artem). Source: http://www.ipsc.in.ua/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1006&p=20024#p20024
Practice is what makes anyone proficient in anything. You have to have training to the point where movements become natural, where your hands, fingers and eyes will know what to do without hesitation.
