    Practice at home

    Are there any readiness drills that you practice at home with your weapon loaded or unloaded?

    You can practice drawing and presenting your weapon on target to devolop muscle memory. Using snap caps you can help improve trigger control. Always tripple check that your weapon is unloaded before starting.

    Thanks for the reply Tony. I think so often we focus on marksmanship that we ccw holders forget that drawing the weapon, disengaging the safety(if needed), and then placing the weapon on a human aggressor will be a completely different experience.

    I bought a bunch of snap caps and loaded them in a couple of magazines to practice draw, shoot, and reload. I also have several magazines to practice fast reloads (just in case). I also practiced laying in the bed and reacting fast to getting my gun from the night stand. I know with alot of people being woke upthey are groggy and slow react. Muscle memory plays apart. I am such a light sleeper that I once I wake up I am alert and awake (why I can work 3rd shift without any problems). Of course since I never can sleep more than 4 or 5 hours (1 or 2 straight through) I don't have to really worry about the whole deep sleep.

    Also another thing you can do is practice moving through your house. Finding different angles, cover, concealment and what not. I also practiced this in the day a bunch, then spent several nights doing the same thing. Another thing I also did was practiced moving around my house on the outside (I don't recommend necessarily going outside to check on a noise) but I like to be safe and not sorry by trying ot expect the unexpected.

    One of the requirements of being a good shooter is to practice. As was said earlier,muscle memory is being developed and this will be an advantage in competition or life threatening situations.At home I try to spend at least 10 minutes a day dry firing and doing some of the weak hand and cover drills we usually do on the range. Not that my house is big but I just simulate them. Also, reloading and acquiring your point of aim on the target is very important. The way you start a shoot can determine how it ends. Most important for me is the draw from retention and acquiring the point of aim.

    I have a 10 meter air pistol (very, very accurate). I shoot that several nights a week (at least 3). It helps with the sight picture and with aim steadiness. I recommend it. It is quiet, cheap to shoot (but not cheap to buy a good 10 meter gun), and useful.
