IDPA Dry Fire Videos

Posted: August 4, 2009 in IDPA

I bought a new Canon FS20 flash memory cam corder and thought I’d try recording myself to see how it turned out. So here are a few videos of me doing some basic dry fire drills:

Reload with Retention

Tactical Reload

You can see I’m not wearing a cover garment for this video, but I may post the same drills later on using my vest to compare.

    Doing the same thing but with cover garments as I have a match this Saturday in the Hot Florida sun. Will also be SOing which means 4 hours in the hot sun. Only 50 shooters expected to shoot 8 stages in the piney flatwoods with no sea breeze. Had slight heat exhaustion last match to the point I could not grab the steering wheel on truck. Need more than 12 SO’s this time of year.

    Love shooting IDPA

      You were probably also dehydrated, which creeps up on you really fast during a match. It takes your body about 5 hours to rehydrate, so you have to stay on top of your hydration. I always take a bottle of water with me and will drink religiously between every stage. As soon as I get to the next bay I take a drink. After I’ve shot a stage I return to my range bag, top off mags, get myself together, think of all the good things I just did a take another gulp of water.
