The Future of Shooting Training

Due to the recent events which have occurred in America, many Americans have turned their thoughts to how to protect themselves and their family from any potential harm. The best way to protect oneself and his or her family is by obtaining and understanding how to use a firearm. The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution allows for Americans to purchase weapons for their own protection. After receiving a gun, most individuals head to the gun range to learn how to safely operate their weapon. However, with the given circumstances, this may not be an option for people. Instead, using virtual simulations and dry fire training, new gun owners can practice with their new gun at home. Dry fire training is the practice of using a weapon without live rounds. The training does not involve the use of ammunition and does not cause wear in newer guns. This allows for any gun to be used at home for practice. This has several positive effects. The first is that it can be done whenever and wherever in a home. Firing ranges have specific hours and may be closed on certain days. While working a regular job, it may be difficult to find time to shoot at the range. Also, if a person wants to avoid COVID or is in isolation, it is impossible to attend the firing range. Therefore, dry fire training is more readily available and a better alternative to the gun range since it can be done at home. By being able to practice at home, the dry fire training will also encourage individuals to train regularly. There’s more incentive to practice when it can be done in the comfort of your own home. More practice will lead to better gun skills and technique. As they say, “Practice makes perfect”. Amateurs to the weapon’s industry have plenty of gun safety lessons to learn and many skills to master while handling a weapon. Through continuous training at home, it becomes possible to perfect one’s shooting ability and technique. Whether it’s correcting your grip, learning to reload faster or refining your aim, dry fire training allows for the best training to occur and the most consistent training to occur. In addition to the physical aspect of using a gun, there is a psychological aspect. Most individuals struggle to cope with the recoil of their weapon after discharging it and with the loud sound of the firing mechanism. By practicing and psychologically preparing oneself to hear the loud sound of the discharge, the user is more comfortable with his or her weapon and is better equipped to handle the sound. It also allows for the user to better control the recoil of the gun. Dry fire training is a revolutionary idea which can be used by all gun owners. It will allow for advanced gun users to hone their craft and enhance their technique. But more important, it promotes gun safety and allows for the newer individuals to practice the basics of using a gun safely. Since the pandemic and the events which have occured during it have caused many Americans to bear arms, dry fire training will lead to a safer and more proficient generation of gun users. Furthermore, these more proficient gun owners thanks to dry fire training will lead to safer communities and allow for more individuals to properly protect their families.
