Well that’s what I am doing. I am taking time at night to don my shooting vest, pick up my rifle, and dry fire! Per some more experienced folks I have spoken to, I do some holding without pulling the trigger, investigating what works best for me in terms of hand positions, etc. I do some trigger pulls with an uncocked bolt, just drawing back looking for movement. Finally, I do some dry fire practice. I will usually aim at a point outside, some distance away that approximates the size of the targets at distance. I try to hold on that as best I can and let the wobble settle. I am finding I do pretty well with my upper body but I get a sway that seems to occur randomly in my lower body thus effecting my whole position. Kind of like a tree swaying in a light breeze. Not sure how to combat that, but I am working on more stable foot positions hoping that will eliminate the issue.
I have noticed that over time my hold is improving, the wobble is getting less and less out of control. I have also observed that within each practice session I start off wobbly and get more solid as the session goes on.
In addition to all of the above I also like to set a timer for the 2:15 which basically counts down :15 and beeps, simulating the fire command, then it counts down 2:00 and beeps again signaling the string of fire is over. I attempt to get off 5 good dry fire shots in the alloted time but I have found this to be pretty challenging. I need to discover a way to get on target and get good shots off quicker so as to stay within the alloted time frame. I am trying to develop a rhythm I can stick to but I don’t believe I have sufficient control at this time to achieve a real rhythm.
Nevertheless, as Lone Watie said in “The Outlaw Josey Wales,” “I must endeavor to persevere.”
