Dry-fire actually becomes more effective when developing neural pathways. By practicing these skills in dry fire you get the opportunity to actually do 99% of everything related to defending yourself with a firearm. Step up your dry fire training by several levels and try using a Sirt Pistol training tool. There's no way to load a live round into a Sirt Pistol. A Sirt has two laser beams that come out of the muzzle. One laser beam is in line with your sights so you get immediate feedback if you are on target and the second works with your trigger. Any advanced tactic is dependent on the mastery of the fundamentals! We've spent 7 years looking at all of the different techniques for the fundamentals of shooting. Physically and scientifically testing one technique against the other to find which one was the most effective in enabling you to defend yourself against a lethal threat. I will win! I will survive!
