   Jackson County Sports Park, and the Historic Camp White (600 Yard) Shooting Range onto

   the main folder (named Shooting_Sports_4_H).  They show Ashley Myers and Daniel

   Geroux using the same rifles, and wearing the same shooting coats and trousers, as for the

   Smallbore Rifle Competition of the 2018 National 4-H Shooting Sports Invitational

   Championship Tournaments.

Ideas on how to store your firearms in plain sight






Some of your most important practice will take place without a round ever going into the chamber.

Champion shooter Julie Golob shares her top four ways to make dry fire training even more productive.

First, let’s define it and lay out some ground rules. Dry fire is simply the act of going through

the motions of shooting without any ammunition—usually in the comfort of your own home, where

you can practice more and more often than you could if you were forced to drive to a range and burn

through actual rounds. Considering the setting, safety is critical but simple. You need to make sure you

have an empty magazine, show clear your firearm and don’t have live ammunition anywhere nearby.


Golob’s First step to better dry fire practice is prep and planning. Put training days and times on your

calendar or set reminders on your phone, then assemble all your gear and have it ready ahead of time for

these scheduled sessions. Bottom line is to make it as simple and automatic as possible, so it will be

easy to follow through.


Number 2: Make your dry fire practice focused. Don’t work an all things shooting—instead focus on a

single skill and dedicate your time to it, so you can start to see real improvements.


Next, make it perfect. We’ve all heard the saying, “Perfect practice makes perfect.” It’s true, and dry fire

training should be your time to ensure you’re building skills exactly as you’d like them.


Finally, make it productive by keeping a dry fire log that honestly details the outcome of each practice

session. What you document will help you identify areas of concern and set up future dry fire work accordingly.
