Proper trigger pull and dry fire practice

Part of learning how to shoot a handgun also requires learning how to pull the trigger. If you do not apply the right amount of pressure or put your finger in the right location, it will affect your accuracy. With too much or too little finger, it will cause your shots to go in a different direction than intended. 

What is dry fire practice?

Dry fire practice is the act of practicing shooting a firearm without any ammunition as part of handgun training at home or at the range. This type of practice allows shooters to improve their accuracy, speed, and trigger control without wasting ammo. Dry fire practice can also be used as a safe way to familiarize yourself with firearms when you are new to using them.
