dry fire practice

Place a dime on the barrel of your gun behind the front site.Squeeze the trigger,practice your trigger squeeze until the dime stays on.That will give you a smooth trigger pull and you can do it while watching tv.

Great tip. I'm going to try that. I used to dry fire all the time. Got a zoom snap caps for drills. Haven't been doing it often enough lately. I'm going to try that out and head to the range after a few weeks of it.
