Hitting the target every time may promote a false sense of security. I like to dry fire, but I spend most of my time shooting .22 surrogate guns, then spend a bit of time with the centerfire gun. Saves me money and reloading time. There are a number of options here that allow you to get practice with a reduced round count during a period of ammo shortage.
