First my teaching stance, breathing and trigger control is the reason for needing to dry fire. i.e. the reason for this post.
Second, Memorizing the four rules of gun ownership is a must before dry firing so I left it out because it preceedd what I'm doing with dry firing but has nothing to do with why I want to teach using dry firing.
He will memorise the four commandments of gun ownership.
1. Never point a weapon at anything you do not wish to kill.
2. A weapon is always assummed to be loaded.
3. Always be aware of what is behind and around your target.
4. Keep your finger off the trigger until your ready to fire.
