dry fire

Locs on, 5.11 pants no doubt saggin to the damn ground:

Ooooo that smooth R&B he’s bumpin in the background.¬† That’s training music fam. Had me like:

2:31 – VODA makes it clear. If you’re a male human his training is NOT specifically for you. For 2019 he is focusing specifically on women. He has a special insight he has that he wants to pass on. Heh, yea I bet. After seeing that linked video I’m 100% convinced this “I’m focusing on women” thing isn’t even the least bit altruistic. He’s doing it to meet women and get paid. Every man has gotta have a hustle. I think all the men in the shooting / training community are onto this guy.

Thoughts? I loved this part (2:10) “If you can hit this *points at Dixie plate laser target on shitty door* you’re gonna be good in any CQC / CQB.” haha yea it’s that easy… you heard it here first from this tactical thought leader folks; laser beams == real steel + stress + movement + noise + recoil etc…

I don’t think you guys know how bad I want to get him into an ENDO logo t-shirt. If he emailed me and was even like, “send me a shirt and I’ll wear it to do some BDSM stuff and post a video on FB, and say how much I hate ENDO” I’d be like “SICKKKKKKKKK what’s the address my man?”

Hmmmm:

Dare I say that practicing dry fire without the trigger break and reset is fairly pointless?¬† At least the Dry Fire Mag product let the trigger break and reset (even if not 100% like the factory).¬† Yea sure you can practice other stuff with your gun while pulling the trigger, but lets not try to act like without the pre-travel click and reset you’re actually “dry firing”.

1:01 – “without having to sacrifice trigger manipulation.” uh yea that’s exactly what you’re doing… sacrificing the break / reset as I pointed out above.¬† If this is acceptable to you though, you might as well just save yourself the money, fold up a little piece of paper and place it at the side, between the barrel and the slide (google it for exact instructions) and pull the trigger all day in the exact same fashion.

There are a lot of “dry fire devices” for Glocks on the market.¬† I really haven’t seen one I’ve liked that can replace a full drop in trigger reset practice kit.

You Can pick up an E-Trainer for $25 on¬†their website, or on Amazon if you’re interested.¬† Naturally, I see on the website that it’s “patented”.

Thoughts? Is it just me, or do the red colored rubber areas make the thing look kinda janky?  Like they just heat shrunk some tube on there and sealed the end with pliers.

Interesting idea.  Lets people practice dry firing without having to rack the slide every time to reset the trigger:

This guy doesn’t like it much. ¬†He talks about¬†how it’s not identical to an actual trigger pull:

$99 on their website. ¬†Seems kind of $teep to me. ¬†I’m really surprised that someone (or Glock) hasn’t been able to develop some drop in solution that exactly mimics the stock trigger. ¬†I’m not a huge fan of dry-fire-then-slide-racking, but I’m also not a fan of not having the exact same trigger pull… more because I’d be annoyed more than anything else. ¬†I’m aware you can get “trigger reset kits”, but those aren’t exactly a easy fix because they require swapping of parts.

ROFL I’M DYING – “Dry-Fire Academy”. ¬†I can’t even make shit this good up. ¬†Here’s a recent report:

Aaron-Cohen-TIER1-SOF-IsraeliNow if you’re not familiar with “Cherries”, I should refresh your memory. ¬†This guy’s Israeli operator TIER level is so low it has to be expressed in scientific notation. ¬†As usual with many low tier operators, they have feelings which can really be hurt on the internet, even when someone like me who admittedly doesn’t know shit all about anything¬†makes fun. ¬†This has happened over and over again on ENDO over the years where jimmies have been rustled at such extreme levels. ¬†Aaron Cohen from Cherries is a prime example. ¬†He immediately removed all videos from the two posts I did on him (Here and Here), in addition to filing DMCA requests to get the facebook and instagram posts I did also removed, messaged me on facebook, PLUS he even went as far as to call me and leave a voicemail which in hindsight I should have returned and recorded the call, because I’m sure some more pure internet gold would have been born from it.

Like I mentioned in one of the prior posts, I’m still really not convinced this guy isn’t just playing a “character”. ¬†The dry-fire training, the YouTube videos, the products… it’s all just too surreal. ¬†If any of you guys live near Beverly Hills CA you really should check out a class and buy all his apparel and report back.

Thoughts? Does anyone think paying actual money to pretend to kill bad guys with a blue gun or laser gun is worthwhile? If there’s something I’m missing let me know. I have two blue guns, I might start my own dryfire academy haha.

Every once and a while you might learn something from this blog:

Pictogram Fire Selector Switch T-ShirtI’m not going to lie, when you learn something here chances are it will be accident because someone doing the teaching has one of my company’s t-shirts on. ¬†Such is the case here :P ¬†Cory is sporting his trademark tightly manicured operator AF facial hair and the Pictogram Fire Selector Switch t-shirt… a deadly combo.

Cory-And-Erica-Punching-Bag-Glock-BeatingNo word on whether Erika practices her heavy bag beatings with a dry fire pistol. ¬†I kid… I kid. ¬†Cory and Erika are good people, who have also obviously forgiven me for poking fun at them in the past. ¬†They keep the videos really pro now, but nothing is off limits with me so I’m keeping an eye on them. :P

They run a training school (Range Time) out of Lewis Indiana if you’re looking for some instruction.

Fate Of Destinee takes a look:

Fate-Of-DestineeNormally I don’t post reviews, or in general things I can’t make fun of, but as you know I DO like ENDO Apparel appearances. ¬†In this particular video she’s making the AR-15 Picatinny Rail t-shirt look its best.¬†

I will comment that the SIRT does look like a good option for dry fire practice, but starting at $329 it doesn’t come cheap. ¬†I just wish there were some interesting reactive targets¬†on the market for laser guns like this (I know there are SOME… but I almost fell asleep even thinking about shooting that). ¬†In my opinion the one major flaw in this system is that you want to know where your shots are going so you’re probably not focusing on the front site as much as you should be… ignoring the green laser flash¬†completely. ¬†How am I supposed to see where I hit when I’m dumping magazines mid-barrel-roll? ¬†Get your shit together SIRT. :P

Is it just me, or would that be annoying that the trigger prepping red indicator laser is so low? ¬†Maybe I’m misunderstanding the use of it though…

Thoughts?
