This Dry Fire Laser Training Systems Review is the longest article I’ve written so far. But, it’s worth reading! I cover most of the major products on the market… all purchased by me with my money. Of course, there will be products on the market that I don’t cover. I’ll be reviewing products from Laserlyte (various products), Next Level Training (SIRT laser pistol), LASR (dry fire app), and Coolfire (recoil trainer).
Shooting Practice in the Comfort of Your Own Home
Some of us can’t get to the range as often as we’d like… for a number of reasons:
⦿ Time – You’re just busy with life… You’ve got to pack up your gear. Drive there. Drive back. Clean and put away gear.
⦿ Distance / Convenience – Availability of ranges may be limited.
⦿ Cost – Ammo has been scarce and expensive in recent years. An hour at the range, practicing with 9-mm could cost $40 – $60+ in just ammo costs.
While live fire is certainly the “best” practice you can get, Dry Fire has a lot of value, as well. Even professional shooters, who have virtually unlimited range time and ammo, use Dry Fire practice as a part of their regular and structured training regimen.
What is “Dry Fire?”

It’s basically using a firearm without ammo. The trigger is pulled, and the hammer or striker drops on an empty chamber (better with “snap caps” or a “dummy” cartridge to prevent excessive wear). It may involve using an actual unloaded firearm. Or, you can use a simulated firearm specially designed for Dry Fire practice (See section on SIRT pistol below).
Dry Fire practice lacks the recoil factor of live fire. But, it allows the shooter to focus on grip, trigger control, sight alignment, sight picture, and other skills. And, you won’t “run out of ammo.” You can repeat sight pictures and trigger pulls many, many times, burning it into “muscle memory.” Dry Fire also has the advantage of not requiring a range. You can do it anywhere, including inside your home. I would not recommend doing it in public areas, for hopefully obvious reasons…. We don’t want to frighten the muggles, eh? Continue reading
