Jade Struck tip of the day

Jade Struck, professional shooter with Taran Tactical Innovations, recently shared with Guns.com what improved her skill set more than any other practice.

Dry firing. It’s free, easy and can make a huge difference. Some people might think it’s boring, and yes, it can get dull after a while. But if you have a weakness in your shooting skillset, chances are, dry firing will get you up to speed without wasting a ton of ammo.

Dry firing also includes getting intimately acquainted with your weapon. Struck demonstrated the techniques she used to sharpen her skills and become a champion shooter. First and foremost, safety is paramount. Make sure your weapon is clear. Double, and even triple check that your weapon is empty. It’s best not to have any ammunition anywhere near you. Also, always point your weapon in a safe direction even though it’s clear.

According to Struck, she had problems with her reloads when she first started competing. So, after losing a few matches, she went home and practiced reloading and dry firing for two months solid. After that, she started to win.
