Solve Accuracy Issues with Dry Firing Practice

I know I have said this before, but dry firing is very important. This week we were able to solve an accuracy issue with an AR15 by simply dry firing it. By doing that it became obvious that the shooter was jerking the trigger. Not much of a jerk, but we were shooting at 200 yards and a little bit of jerk at the muzzle can make a big difference at that distance. So the tip is this…if your accuracy isn’t what you think it should be, try dry firing several times. It works best if you have someone watch while you are doing it, but your goal is to pull the trigger, while the sights are properly lined up, without disturbing the sight picture. You’ll be surprised what you can learn!
