How do you train without ammo at home and in the classroom?

I’m open to all thoughts and advice so thanks for jumping in.
Are you saying a point of aim system is the direction to start with as well? The Mantis system shows movement but does not show accuracy where the point of aim will.

I’ve being instructing for almost 2 years now.
I’m OK with POA systems. These are self instructing. You can diagnose your accuracy by your own.
Laser target and laser cartridge are the less complicated and easy to use tools.
But that’s it… no more “self service” for proper technique.

Live feedback and corrections from Instructor is a must for building proper shooting fundamentals. Once you get bad habit with any part of these, your whole technique will never be corrected by any fancy electronic tool.
Maybe I’m advocating “old school” right now… but it never failed me or any of my students.

I use these procedure:

  1. class with Instructor → learn, collect as much information as possible
  2. dry fire at home → use all the knowledge and information from the class
  3. verify everything with your Instructor during the next class
  4. if all is good - proceed with next step of shooting techniques
  5. if errors found, ask Instructor for corrections and go back to 2.

old, easy peasy, but still the most effective learning method.

Anybody else have any updates and recommendations on any of the dry fire training platforms?

It’s quite an awesome system. I highly recommend it. I do dry fire training using a SIRT pistol and even sometimes using laser snap caps in my Taurus G2C. That same 9mm snap cap even fits in a shotgun adapter so I can practice my marksmanship for sporting clays and even upland bird hunting.
