From www.studentofthegun.com/articles:

“Aside from the movies and TV, dry fire instills more bad habits than any other activity.” Such was the comment of the owner of one of the nation’s top shooting schools. The school in question puts through some 5000 plus students per year, so they have a tremendous amount of experience on which to base their opinions.

Dry Fire or Dry Practice

The terms Dry Fire or Dry Practice have been used for decades and both descriptors have the same meaning for our purpose here. In the simplest terms, dry fire means to practice with a firearm sans ammunition.

During USMC basic training at Parris Island, South Carolina we spent an entire week dry-firing with our M16A2 rifles. We called this “Grass Week”, as we’d be spending a lot of time sitting, kneeling, and lying in the grass. Our instructors combined verbal teaching methods with hours upon hours of dedicated dry-fire drills. We were assured that if we dedicated ourselves to the dry-fire process that we would be rewarded on Qualification Day with high scores.

From a personal standpoint, I absolutely took the dry-fire training seriously. In my mind, there was no other choice. As my Primary Marksmanship Instructor had advised, on qualification day my dedicated dry fire work was rewarded with an “Expert” rating, the highest rank awarded to Marines.
