    Default Miss going to the range!

    I'd been going to the range every two weeks, but with the virus situation I haven't been there in five weeks now.

    To keep my skills up somewhat I can use snap caps in my .22 revolvers, which at least allows me to practice trigger control and sight picture.

    Can also shoot my CO2 bb and pellet pistols in the basement.

    What are you all doing to keep your skills up during this time?

    actually taking the time to get the 22lr rang up and running in the basement. I've been wanting to do this for months now.

    Since you have a revolver, here are some skills to practice.
    dry fire in a safe place without live ammo. (basement)
    Try balancing a coin on your front sight and dry fire without dropping the coin.
    Reloading with speed loaders. Work on this till you can do it quickly and without having to look.
    Reloading one handed. Both left and right.
    You can get a laser cartridge and get some visual feedback. I use one on a paper target in my basement. Practice increasing draw to first shot time. There are apps, some free, that use the camera on your phone or tablet to record where the laser hit the target. This way you can see how accurate your shot was and the time. I only have one, but I could see getting another to practice two shot drills. Should also practice firing one handed, especially weak hand.

    Great suggestions, dariv. I already practice some of those, but not all. Gives me some more to work on. 👍
