Home office dry-fire range
« on: June 19, 2019, 10:32:37 PM »
I picked up about $20 worth of dry-fire targets from benstoegerproshop, some Velcro tape, and a $30 '6x4' industrial carpet from Lowes.  Popped in some grommets and hung it on my office wall.  No excuse not to practice and I...I mean the kids can run "stages" with the Nerf guns.

What are you using on your pistol? Laser ammo?

Great setup! I love it.
Have you tried to incorporate "LASR app" with this?

Nah.  I have a red-dot on my gun so it provides all the feedback I need.  I use this setup to practice transitions, turn and draws, Blake drills, reloads, etc.  Pretty much everything but splits.  For trigger control, I use a B8 target scaled for 3yards.  I set my timer for random start and try to pull the trigger before the end of the beep without disturbing the dot.  Scaled B-8 target is at the bottom of this page: https://www.barelytactical.org/targets/

The industrial carpet was way too heavy and the 3M hooks eventually failed. I picked up 2 yards of 60" loop fabric online for about $40 shipped and added grommets.  I also picked up a few more targets.  I made a mistake in trimming the fabric so tall though.   I should've just cut the 60"x72" piece in half.  Then I'd have two 60"x 36" to hang on adjacent walls to practice wider transitions.
