Shooting skills are a deteriorating or perishing skill. Reviews indicate that a one-week to ten-day break in shooting practice can result in up to a twenty percent loss in learned skills. The longer you stay away, the greater the loss. The only way to fight against this is to keep training by all means possible.
However, participating in continuous training presents another challenge. Training is not cheap. From instructors to ammunition to gun range fees, expenses add up. The amount of time and money required to keep your shooting skills primed could either bankrupt many shooters or leave barely enough funds to do much else.
The solution – Dry fire training. Dry fire training is practice technique that involves firing a firearm without ammunition. The goal of this technique is to allow the shooter to maintain their shooting skills through continuous practice. No instructor or range fees have to be paid as this course is structured to be conducted away from the shooting range.
The technique has proven to be quite popular. Those who have engaged in dry fire drills have seen marked improvement. However, the creator of the product we are about to review points out a challenge faced by many shooters who participate in traditional dry fire training. It is repetitious, extremely boring and requires you to train for an extensive period of time.
Boring and repetitious tasks require great discipline to perform. Few have been found to have this discipline. Subsequently, they abandon this otherwise great technique that would help them improve their shooting skills.
In addition, it has been noted that once a skill has been mastered there is little direction on how to progress. Another challenge presented by traditional dry fire training is that it does not completely eliminate the need for an instructor and you still require to set aside a lot of time to practice.
The program outlined below seeks to address all these challenges and even some you didn’t know you had.
The 21 Day Alpha-Shooter Challenge
The 21 Day Alpha-Shooter Challenge is a training program built around the dry fire system. It has been strategically designed to improve shooting skills in a logical progressive manner to create what the program’s designer refers to as “alpha-shooters.”
To meet the twenty-one-day time frame, the designer has taken what is great about dry fire training, combined it with certain elements of martial arts training. The result is a training program that uses both physical and mental drills to equip you with solid shooting skills in the shortest time possible.
Some of the mental and physical drills that have been used to enhance traditional dry fire training include:
- Interleaved training
- Synaptic facilitation
- Visual hacks
- At-home sensory deprivation
- Slow training
The selected mental drills speed up the rate at which the shooter acquires new skills. This accelerated mental focus is what makes the challenge only last twenty-one days.
