How to Train and Practice Shooting Without Live Ammo

It’s a good way to drill with pistols using the G-Sight ELMS ProPack Training System; it’s dry fire that’s not so dry.

Dry fire is comparable to eating well and exercising. We know it’s beneficial for us, but a lot of people don’t like it. The issue with dry fire is that, well, it’s dry. The only thing that happens is a click. When a bullet strikes a steel target, there is no feedback, no hole in the paper target, and no ting sound. Without feedback, training becomes less enjoyable, and it can become a chore.
The G-Sight ELMS is a straightforward system to set up and use, unlike some dry-fire training systems. The set contains spare O-rings and batteries, as well as caliber-specific training cartridges like as 9mm, 9×18 Makarov,.40 S&W,.45 ACP,.380 ACP, 10mm, and.45 Colt. A tripod and a phone holder are also included. Laser Training is a free app that you may download.

To begin, tape a paper target to a wall. Then, after opening the app, activate your phone’s camera and point it towards the target. Zoom in until the target completely fills the screen. Insert the training cartridge into the chamber after verifying your pistol is unloaded, then slowly guide the slide forward.
Each dry-fire trigger press will cause the laser cartridge to generate a visible red dot that replicates the point of impact of a round. The app also records each try so you can watch your group and navigate through shots individually.

G-ELMS Sight’s also creates an auditory hit confirmation that sounds like a bullet ringing steel, which is not found in ordinary dry-fire sessions. Each time, the aural confirmation complements the visual feedback.
The free Laser Training Pro software allows you to fire 10-round strings at a time. You can, of course, start a fresh session after the 10th round. Laser Training Unlimited is a $4.99 in-app purchase that allows players to shoot as many rounds as they like per session. You may also purchase the Shot Timer for $4.99, which allows you to customize the number of sessions, shots, split periods between shots, session length, or par time, and the delay before your first shot

I found the G-laser Sight’s to be accurate at distances ranging between 5 and 15 yards. What good is a laser trainer without dependable feedback?
It’s vital to keep in mind that with a single-action or striker-fired pistol, you’ll have to manually cycle the slide between shots, making it impossible to precisely time numerous shots. You’re good to go for the multi-shot functionality with a double-action handgun, though.
