    Has anyone owned and used the Dry Fire units?? Pro's and Con's?? How much did the system really improve your scores??? Trying to decide if it would be worth investing in or spend the money on a clinic and shells.

    Has anyone got one they would like to sell??

    Merry Xmas to all....

    Save your money and buy Terry Jordans wall chart system.

    I've had two (first and second generation units),and they work. However, you must shoot along with the using system, or you forget there is recoil. It will make you fast as lighting. I used mine once to go from pull to release triggers. And the change over went as sweet as pie. Very quick learning curve. You can make the system work slow or fast to suit your abilities. Worked for me.

    I have looked very hard at Terry's wall chart, even downloaded the manual and read about 3 times. I just feel that I need feedback on my practice. I am not sure how Terry's does that. I would much rather spend the lesser amount, that's for sure...

    Many Thanks,

    Ron H.

    I have had a 12' Jordan chart and now have a 8' chart. It's apples and oranges between the Computer system and the wall chart. If you have the bucks buy the Dry Fire Computer system. It's interactive and frankly not boring to use like the wall chart. You will probably use the DryFire a lot more than the chart, and of course, you can sell it and recoup some of the up-front cost. I did. How are the glasses?

    The glasses are great!! If you run across someone with a Dry Fire system for sale please let me know! I would use 3-4 times a week and then shoot on the weekends..

    Merry Xmas, Ron H.

    I use the Laserpro with Terry's chart.

    I swing to the target and when I pull the

    trigger the laser dot gives feedback.

    It's not a moving target but a good cost compromise.

    I bought a Dryfire system about a year and a half ago. It helped me point and shoot more accurately by working on my timing. I also really struggled learning to shoot a release trigger, until using the Dryfire. It does provide excellent feedback on where you are shooting in relation to the target.

    I used it quit often for awhile, but ended up selling it. Would I buy it again? Probably not. For as much and often as I shoot (only 100 boxes a year), I felt I would just sell it and shoot targets at the club with money I sold it for.
