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

I have my SIRT on my dresser and “shoot” several times a day. Always before I head out “fully dressed.” I especially focus on timing my trigger press a fraction of a second before the sights hit the target and on good “follow through” - insuring the laser remains a dot rather than a dash. Quick target transition is reinforced, and I even get to have someone “shooting at me” when I target myself in the mirror (I cheat down a bit to avoid the eyes, but it’s amazing how often I shoot the gun out of my own hands!)

I have utilized snapcaps, SIRT pistol, BarrelBlok, and recently ordered the MantisX and have been using it quite a bit. I just got their Laser Academy product as well but I’m still familiarizing myself with the MantisX so I haven’t gotten into that yet.
I checked into the CoolFire setup previously but didn’t see it listed for the handgun I wanted to use it with.

My girlfriend and I did that for a bit but when we kept finding the airsoft balls throughout the house we stopped using it. I now use it outside.

I use all of the above but use either Sort of laser insert most for dry fire, same as what I use teaching classes.

One of my instructors told us to go home and practice our draw 100 times every night in front of a mirror for a whole week! This made my draw technique so much smoother and considerably faster.

I have antigun leftest family with their kids our grandkids living with us. I carry everyday but what you don’t see is Ok with them. The way I train is in my locked 12’x12’ bedroom doing dry fire drills. Not real good but better than nothing, as for lasers they are out of my price range as I’m retired.

Dry fire , but there has to be something more recoil efficient.

I was going to go with the Mantis X3 and have enough money in Bass Pro gift cards. What’s crazy is that BP does not carry the Mantis X or any other laser training system.

I’ve currently picked up an airsoft replicz of my firearm with slide recoil that I use for drills.

I use the ELMS laser system. Great for practice since you’re using your own gun. Keeps score on your smartphone for reference if you choose…
