I’ve shot USPSA and 3 gun off and on for the last five years, and I know that dry fire REALLY pays off. I still do this type of shooting on my own, but not in an actual match environment. Though I might not be competing, I still continue to dry fire some almost daily to keep up. I have a set routine with different draws and reloads. Then for fun, I might setup a few different courses of fire around the house with 1/3rd size targets. Just doing this type of stuff can make a huge difference in shooting as well as equipment familiarization. With that said, do you recommend dry firing with long rifles as well? If so, are there specific routines you practice as well? I wasn't sure if there might be some kind of dry firing routine that'd help with preparing for the Steel Safari Challenge per se? I was planning on purchasing an IOTA (Indoor Optic Training Aid), which gives you a good sight picture of the target you’re looking at as well as your cross hairs at 10 feet. I thought it might be useful to make different size targets to simulate different ranges… You could maybe practice different holds for windages and dial in elevation for whatever range the target is supposed to simulate while transitioning to another target, all within your home. Maybe even practice different shooting positions. I suppose you could even use that tiny train scenery and create small landscapes if and try to spot small targets if you wanted to get real crazy. It just seems like it’d make sense to do this type of train up during the week, and then practice with live rounds on the weekend. Any input would be much appreciated! Knowing how much dry firing pistol and carbine increases performance, I can only imagine it’d help with a rifle as well.
