Ever wish you could shoot a gun like a Navy SEAL? I can tell you the “Secret” of how we do it…but then I’d have to kill you. For those of you who have read my book, you already know the secret, for the rest of you here it is…there is no “secret”, it all boils down to dry fire practice; and lots of it.

I can teach a monkey to pull a trigger (though he might slap the hell out of it). Dry fire training involves everything you do with that weapon, from the basic fundamentals to shooting on the move.

But one of the things that make me and my fellow frogmen so comfortable around weapons is that we are very vigilant about adhering to the basic rules of gun safety and handling. Anytime you forget about them, even for a second, bad things can […]
