0315 - LaserLyte Training Aids NASGW Interview

/
Trigger control can be an issue for many shooters when it comes to precision and shooting. Although there can be a hyper-focus on precision in defensive shooting, it is an issue that needs to be addressed. Getting the hit when the target dictates precision based on size or distance is a complex motor skill that requires the defensive shooter to maintain proper sight alignment and sight picture while pressing the trigger to the rear. Any deviation in the sights during the trigger press results in deviation on the target. Too much deviation and the shot is a miss. Many people believe that the proper solution to this issue is dry fire practice and to some degree they are correct. The issue with dry firing, however, is that there is very little feedback to the shooter. Thousands of rounds of dry fire practice isn't going to help you if what you are doing is WRONG! Today we will take a look at how the products that LaserLyte produces can give you the quality feedback you need to help make your dry fire practice more efficient.
