    Each night I dry fire to practice my grip but mainly to build up my shoulder muscles. And it takes time to build them up, and as we age, takes longer.
    Tonight I decided to dry fire my full size SR1911 vs my LW Commander. I was surprised that within about 15 minutes my shoulders got tired using the full size 1911. Then I would switch back to my LW for another 15 minutes and then to the full size. I am doing this using only 1 hand at a time. I pick out a small target on my garage wall and aim at it, change over to my weak hand and do the same and then I switch weapons. You would be surprised how that little difference in weight can make. Oh well, just wanted to relate my story and if anyone does anything different that would help, please post it.
