I was told one story, I don’t know if it’s true. One shooter had a bad habit practicing with live rounds at home. First shot was at TV, second at the wall and third shot at the wall resulted a divorce… So, always practice with dummy rounds, it is better to put all live rounds in a safe or in another room, so you have no chance mixing live and dummy rounds.
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.
Shotgun Shooting Tips
Here are some tips which will help you in shotgun shooting:
- Proper shooting stance. It is very important to train a proper shooting stance. Train it everyday when dry fire, this builds your muscle memory. Believe me, dry firing will improve your results dramatically.
- Control your breath when shooting slugs. It is not that important when you shoot birdshots or buckshots.
- Control your trigger finger. This is important when shooting slugs. Pull the trigger smoothly.
- Don’t anticipate a recoil. This is very easy to test, ask your friend to load your shotgun with several rounds, one of them will be a dummy shell. If you are anticipating recoil you will notice how you push a shotgun forward when pulling the trigger and think that it is going to fire.
- Keep both eyes open. This is very important. Using both eyes when aiming will give you better depth perception and a peripheral vision. This is very good habit for defensive shooting.
- Choose a stock of a proper length.
- Test the ammunition and find that one which works best with your shotgun.
