What is dry fire?

Dry firing refers to practicing shooting without any live ammunition.  Instead, you use dummy rounds or snap caps to simulate shooting and cycling the action of your firearm.  Dry firing is a great way to improve your shooting skills as it allows you to focus on your technique and iron out any flaws without the added pressure of recoil or loud noise.

Why is dry fire manipulation important for shotgun shooters?

Shotguns are unique firearms that require manipulation of the action to load, unload, and clear malfunctions.  Shotgun shooters need to be proficient in these manipulations as they can save valuable time during competitions or in self-defense situations.  Dry fire manipulation practice allows you to become familiar with the feel and movement of your shotgun's action, making it easier to execute these movements without hesitation.


Why Focus on Manipulations?

Manipulations refer to the various actions needed to operate a firearm, such as loading, unloading, and clearing malfunctions. Mastering these manipulations is crucial for any shooter, especially when it comes to tactical shotguns. These actions must be performed with precision and speed in high-stress situations.
