Dry Practice with Laserlyte - increasing your skills without breaking the bank

If you've ever taken a training course with Independence Training, then you've heard us talk about the need for, and the real-world benefits of, dry practice. Dry practice is utilizing unloaded (see the safety rules below) firearms to practice effective marksmanship techniques such as sight picture and trigger compression, manipulation techniques such as loading and malfunction clearances (made easier with dummy rounds), and even defensive concepts such as drawing from a holster, fighting with your firearm in close quarters, and movement.

LaserLyte has some very cool products that help you to dry practice in such a way that you will be able to see where your shots are going during dry practice - including some awesome reactive targets! There is really no end to the benefits that a good training regimen and an active imagination can do to utilize products like those from LaserLyte. Increasing accuracy, reducing draw and presentation time, training in close quarters fighting techniques, teaching new shooters and youth the fundamentals of safety and marksmanship, and training to recognize and engage targets effectively in low-light conditions are just a few of the ways that we use our LaserLyte units.

Regardless of where you are in your shooting career, these LaserLyte products are something worth adding to your training equipment.
