Dry firing is like working out, but for your gun. If you're training and you bleed, it's just the weakness leaking out. If you dry fire and your gun breaks, then it was a POS and you now have the opportunity to install better parts.

I've been slinging lead for many decades--dry firing, dropping slides on empty chambers, using the slide release, and have never suffered any failures as a result of this "abuse."

I dry fire 50:1 over live fire.

5 minutes a day, from draw, double taps on small homemade (out of a Domino's pizza box) IDPA targets from anywhere from 5 to10 yards. Can in pictures only used for size reference. I use the G-sight laser cartridges.

I do different dry fire exercises. Some are for sight picture, some for trigger pull (with snap caps), some for reloading, sometimes putting it all together. My Ultra Carry ll has great night sights, but I normally do my dry fire with my RIA GI Compact. It is about the same size as the Kimber...slightly longer barrel...but it has old style metal sights. I put a little gold paint on the front sight and this is what I usually train with. I want working with the heavier weight of the full steel frame, plus the discipline of sighting the target with no assist from the sights. Every fourth session I use the Kimber...usually it is a "put it all together" session. I also do dry fire at night with all the lights off. This is the "bump in the night" session that begins with me in bed. I use the RIA in this one because I don't want the night sights to interfere with my night vision. For me it is all about self protection/CQB. I'd love to one day take both .45s and do one of Clint Smiths Pistol Combat courses.
