Nup - Every night the wife's full lenght mirror in our closet, I draw on an intruder that looks like my twin .. but I don't have a twin brother!! Luv to see those 3 green dots come up nicely aligned and on target without searching...

Cheers

don't really do a mirror, would scare myself looking at this old man with a gun, rather to just fondle the firearm and draw on empty air

Guilty as charged, but only with a "cleared" weapon.... I don't need 7 years bad luck, I seem to have enough as it is!

Never thought of that, but doesn't that get expensive, replacing mirrors and all?

Nope. I have a VTAC target on my closet door.

When my husband was deployed last year, I sent him a pic of our cat doing something silly, not realizing the mirror across the room caught my reflection and the target behind me. I sent him the pic and he replied that the cat was cute but who was the guy behind me (being funny). I didn't miss a beat and replied "Oh him? That's Jody." lol It was too funny!! He replied something about him being a dead MF'er.. So now the target is named Jody.

I imagine. But a lot less expensive than using your most unfavorite politician as a target on the big screen TV. I'm up to forty seven TV's this election season. Costco has me on their "New TV a Week" plan.

If you are, the planet only has one resident!

Have used Applegate's point n' shoot methodology for years, and work, assiduously, to smooth my draw and presentation. Fairbairn and Janich, along with Morris, are invaluable for dry-fire training... Muscle memory, along with repetition before a mirror, to me, is key to building, and maintaining proficiency- of course, along with time at the range, and putting metal down that range... One cannot exclude the actual firing, observing, and fine tuning of one's abilities...

No, Duckman, regardless of what others may say, in this, you are "normal..."

P.S. Marshall Wyatt Earp, no practitioner of speed, said, "Make haste- slowly..." That was because those who sought speed, over the virtue of precision, often shot into the ground, before their intended victims... Too, remember, in those days, as even today, one shoots to kill, or be killed... So, work to achieve smoothness, as speed will follow...

While I practice drawing a few times a day, I don't use mirrors.

I use targets of opportunity, always changing, inside the house.

It's a mutual feeling, I assure you!
Not many men would put up with all the gun shopping I do.

My favorite dry-fire targets are my cat and Rachel Maddow (On the TV). My cat just looks at me with that blank stare, and Rachel Maddow just continues to bleat on annoyingly...
