Default Training Idea

Ok lets say you are preparing for a shooting competition, what if you had a lazer mounted to your gun that fires when you partially pull the trigger but the gun only fires when you pull the trigger completely; you could essentially test your accuracy by watching where the lazer hits rather than using ammunition? Given that you are practicing with an unloaded gun, how feasible is this as a practice method? Thanks

something like this?

I think plain old dry firing gives you a pretty good non range pratice. I know when I am dry firing it is pretty obvious when I pull the trigger where the sights are after the click. For saftey I use a "Snap Cap" in the chamber, They are fairly cheap and after the dry fire I run a failer drill to cycle the next. That and they want $250 for that laser system, that is a lot of money that can go for ammo.

In some competitions, that could be a violation of the rules. And, with my nerves shaking in competition, I would probably pull the trigger completely when trying to aim.
