Hard Choices


About a week after buying the second Sirt Training Pistol my wife keeps it placed by the tv remote.
She’s found I’ll pickup the Sirt and leave the tv alone.
Watch out all other male at home dry fire personnel, this might happen to you also.

What’s the dot and how is it mounted?

That’s a great way to keep it in front of you. I was just telling my wife that I need to get some SIRT pistols. I usually use the G-Sight cartridge, but would rather have something that I don’t have to unload when I want to dry fire.

I sure hope in a home defense situation that you do not grab the wrong object. :sunglasses:

So… you are not addicted to TV anymore… :slightly_smiling_face:

Mine is sitting under office desk countertop and is in use every time I’m working on my PC.

My Sirt sits there too but I have caught her practicing with it too!

The optic is a dummy. When ordering the Sirt you can also order the optic housing that replace the rear sight on the sirt. It helps if you want to train because you have a red dot optic on some of your EDC’s.
It is just a blank housing to get acclimated to optics.

As training the last few years, I always carry on person around the house. Before I reach for the Sirt I remove my live fire EDC and ammo and lock it up in the bio safe.
Thankfully no mistakes as of this day. I feel mentally training as much as physical training is important.

It’s called “SIRT SPOT Sight”.
$19.99

I was only teasing, as evidenced by the emoji.

It’s a good point though.

Similar to removing live ammo from the room (or yourself from the room that has the live ammo) before dry fire, it’s not a bad idea to remove the live gun from your body when doing dry/laser fire

I do most of my dry practice with my carry gun, and at home often have it staged not on my person. It had never occurred to me that one might work on dry fire while carrying a live firearm. Yikes! :dizzy_face: Gives me the willies to think I might inattentively switch to draw practice, or go the the holster instead of the table after changing targets or something.

When I unload for dry practice — just like I have a routine safe practice area — I have a routine place where the unloaded magazine and chamber cartridge will sit. It’s in a different room, but where I can see it easily from my practice area. Visual verification that things are where I think they should be if I am distracted during a practice period. Ammo which is not on-duty is packed up in a different part of the house, not scattered all over in pockets or candy dishes.

Just get a remote control shaped like a handgun!

Earlier this week, my body fell into a hole because my mind wasn’t there.

Doesn’t that build a bad habit of pointing a gun at you? Also it wouldn’t be two difficult to paint an S&W M&P the same way…

@Christopher_S1, Don’t know if I understand you correctly. I know I train with the Sirt and treat the Sirt as it were a real loaded firearm. That is mentioned in many training videos, TREAT EVERY FIREARM AS IT IS LOADED, Don’t break this rule or habit for any firearm. I even remove the sirt magazine and check it for no live rounds, yes I know you can’t put live rounds in the sirt magazine.
Though you might be able to put a magazine with live ammunition into the sirt, yes, won’t discharge a round but mistakes are made.
We’re only human…

Wasn’t trying to be insulting or prudish, I get that the SIRT is a trainer. I made the mistake of misreading. If you don’t mind I will delete the previous post and hold my head down in shame! Battling a tedious day of WFH.
