Default Using time at home to improve M14 regiment.

While many of us are spending time sheltering in place, it's a great opportunity to improve our M14 shooting skills.
Snapping in and dry firing can not only help your scores on the range, but can assist in a better mental attitude and physical condition all around.
I decided to add a regiment of getting down into prone position, dry firing 10 shots, get back up, lift the M14 over my head a few times, get back down and into position and repeat. This can really be a benefit for us older folks with all the stretching and moving. With a week of this exercise under my rather large belt, I have noticed my tongue only hangs half as far out of my mouth after a 30 minute routine and getting down and back up no longer feels like an impossible mission.

Examples: Old photos but presents the general idea.

Prone dry fire.





Before, minus the shooting jacket.



After, feeling like a new man.

I cheated, there was a piece of mono holding the rifle.

With a shortage of N-95 protection, get creative.
