    Dry fire against a white background. No target.

    Just focus on the front sight and getting the shot to break without disturbing alignment.

    I used to tell people starting out buy a 22 rimfire that you like and shoot it weekly for a year. Every time you finish a box of ammo put $20.00 in the coffee can ( basically difference between 22 and most centerfire ammo) At the end of the year you have sight picture hold and trigger control down and are ready for the centerfire. Now open the coffee can and theres the money for the centerfire you want and some starter ammo.

    Starting out with the big boomers seldom works well, our nervous systems arnt able to handle the booms, flash and recoil flinches result. Lhe ild mannered 22 gets the nervous system up to this. A lot can be accomplished thru dry fire better if combined with live fire sessions to confirm. Use a big target to start it might not be your a very poor shot but the ammo gun combination may not be sighted in. Some sighting in may be required

    Last and most target shooters do this routinely. Learn to call your shots when shooting. Knowing you drifted off into the 8 ring area when the shot broke explains a lot when the shot is in the 8 ring there. Being able to "call shots" is a big help in shooting.

    Agun sighted in from a solid rest and bench position may have a slightly different poi/poa due to the differences in how hold and recoil affect the firearm

    I shoot primer propelled wax bullets.
    They can be shot from an automatic but they must be single loaded.
    Shooting these at paper will really help.
    Also if you reload.
    You can load up some minimum loads using lighter weight recommended bullets.
