Practicing Parlor Tricks isn’t Helping You Get Better

This last week on Instagram a trend got started where people were filming themselves dryfiring a reload, and then catching the magazine before it hits the ground. There were some really well made videos put out there, but at the end of the day practicing catching your magazine, and altering the way you do your reload practice probably isn’t the best way to spend your practice time.

It’s cool that this got some people out practicing, but at the end of the day, doing this probably wasn’t real useful for actually getting better at shooting.

The News

This video of Travis Haley swept the gun-ternet over the past couple weeks and we’re just kind of over it. He was demonstrating why a technique was bad and prone to ND’s and had an ND. Meh.

A lot of local folks have their panties in a wad about this too, and it’s really not a big deal. Most gun ranges have the same or similar rules so stop worrying about it.
