Yes, it’s true. We all have lives. We all have priorities. We all have things that hinder us from doing what we need to do to ensure we can do the hard things when it comes to protecting our families and communities. And we are individually responsible to make the choice to be disciplined in our daily regimen, even though it gets boring fast.
That said, you can devote 5 whole minutes (300 seconds) to dry fire each day if you make up your mind to do it. Ok, 7 minutes if you count retrieving the weapon, making sure it’s safe, and picking your aiming point, which can be a dot on a wall or any other small thing (DTG does not recommend standing near a window and pointing at squirrels or other objects….). To liven things up, do pistol dry fire every third day for a couple weeks and then switch to rifle/carbine dry fire every third day for a couple weeks. You can also change up the routine from simple BRASS drills to target re-acquisition or whatever strikes your fancy.
But do it. Faithfully. It’s hard to get in the habit, but once you do, it becomes part of your daily routine.
