trigger reset

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.

COMMENT

This could be a deal breaker for a lot of people:

The trigger doesn’t reset. If you pull the trigger, and then run the slide while still holding the trigger to the rear like you would on a Remington 870 or a Mossberg, the trigger will simply go dead. We actually tried this on several models and it was the same on each demo gun.

There are a lot of comments over on Caleb’s blog addressing this issue.  Some people suggest a Kel-Tec rep told them this actually only happens on the civilian models, and the LEO ones work as one would expect.  Others have the whole “But but but it’s a prototype!” rhetoric, which I don’t know if I buy either.

I sure hope they fix this issue.
