I finally got around to doing some of that dry fire practice I should have been doing for a while now.
One of the best ideas I have gotten (thanks Jay G) was to get a laser and use that to help out. So I got a laser bore sight and I mount that in my double action Makarov and off I go. . . .
Been doing it for about two weeks now. I practice a few times a week and I can already see the pay off with the laser not jumping around as much.
This has really worked out well for me. I can change my grip a bit and see right away how it effects my shot. I quickly could see how much the laser was jumping because my grip was too loose. Where it use to jump 2 inches or so to the right when I fired I am now down to a half inch or so.
My normal practice is to shoot 5, 10 or at the most 20 shots, then take a break so I don't tire my hand and finger too quickly. After a break I do another set of shots. This has worked well so far. Now I need to get to the range and see how this translates to paper. . . ..
A side effect of this is I am also finding I can watch the front sight and still see the laser better and better as I practice.
I have become a convert! more dry fire time needed!
