Seems that if you are truly focused on the front sight during dry fire you would have all the information you need without pennies and casings sitting on top of it.

There is also something to be said for dry fire practice with your eyes closed and visualizing steady sights and a perfect break. For more info on dry fire combined with visualization see Grayguns site

I totally agree that trigger control is key. And is also my prime weakness as evidenced by low left groupings. Practice. Practice. Practice. Live and dry fire.

Read an article a few years back by the reigning world champion pistol shooter. Shot for the army. Talked about his training regimen in the run up to worlds. In the final month prior to competition, he fired I think he said no more than 500 live rounds. But he practiced dry fire in the neighborhood of 10,000! Voila ... World champion.
That one article started me on my own dry fire journey, and have to say is the key to my improvement as a shooter of both handguns and long guns. REALLY helping me master the da/sa Sigs.

You can see if move without pennies and casings but you'd be amazed how little movement it takes to cause the pennies and casings to drop, so it forces you to have essentially no movement at all.

I use dimes, myself.

Was watching a shooter at the range the other day that had a laser. More to the point, I was watching their dot all over the target and off target while they were cycling the trigger. That was informative.

It is fascinating to watch, isn't it?

Yeah. And whenever there's someone with a laser it seems to find MY target. I don't mind if they use a laser but just keep it on your own target.

Here's a way I've found to be extremely helpful.

Take a penny and set it horizontally on the front post. (It really helps if you can have a friend help you out by setting it on the post as you have the firearm extended as if you are going to shoot it).

Practice pressing the trigger without the coin falling off the post.

It is a GREAT way to cure you of a whole host of bad trigger press habits.
We used the same methodology of the coin at the front of the slide, nearly fifty years ago, using the slab sided M1911. Worked then, and now... Just last night I taught that to my daughter, with her new Sig P938 Combat, which she got early for Christmas and birthday- she's almost 30... Crack shot, but her first SAO type pistol... Valuable practice, along with dry firing/point shooting/ and range time, on a consistent basis...

Absolutely correct. As I get older, controlling capillaries, breath, heartbeat, and a host of other variables, is difficult at best, and going with what I am capable of, remains all that I can do, always less than what I could do a half century ago... Getting old is much easier, than being old... Admitting that you are limited, vis--vis your capabilities of old age versus youth, is honest, but unpleasant... Being old, is a result of not being dead... As the Apostle Paul said, "to be absent from the body, is to be present with The Lord..." A win-win...

Learn the limits of your abilities. Practice. Push those limits. Never, ever, give-up... Cheat- never play or wage war, fairly... Use all the skill, experience, and treachery that you have at your command...
