Dry Practice Drill is the best dry practice timer for the the iPhone or iPad. It is simple to use, and wrapped in a beautiful interface.

The app includes all the drills from Front Sight's handgun training course. but the drill list is yours to customize. Add and remove drills, or tweak times as your skills improve.

For each drill you are given a few seconds to prepare, then an audible "Ready" call. After a random pause, a short tone marks the drill start. You should complete the drill before you hear the whistle.

Use the strings feature to automatically decrease drill time as you practice.

We Include basic instructions how to complete each drill. This is especially helpful for complex drills like malfunction clearing.

This is the perfect companion for your trip to Front Sight, and a great way to keep the momentum going afterwards.

Hint: If you cannot hear the sounds, check your device's mute switch. ;-)

Now that they have updated the app to increase the reps of the drill, I have increased my previous review to 5 stars. Thank you, Developers, for listening! (Incredibly, many developers pay no attention to reviews!)

I gave it 4 stars for only one reason: You can only get 5 repetitions of the drill before you have to stop, reholster, then reset the app. Please give us the option of an endless loop. You can also take this to the range for effective live ammo practice. Just put your earbuds on under your normal ear protection.

Developer Response

This is fixed in version 3. Thanks for the comments.

Got My DG using this App

Rocksolid Dave

I originally downloaded this app about three years ago and have been using it to practice for my Front Sight classes. I was able to finally score Distinguished Graduate at Front Sight last year.
It is practice under time pressure that gets you there. I have used this App for dry practice and live fire, and believe it has helped tremendously, especially since it is geared toward achieving the DG.
Thanks for the app!

Fatal Flaw For Some Users


I should have paid more attention to an earlier review regarding the inability of this app to allow more than 5 repitiions of a drill in a single session. Let's say you're just practicing aiming and firing and you want to accomplish this in .5 seconds. It's more helpful to the user if the user can set the app to repeat this drill at least 10-15 times before having to reset on your phone or tablet. A limit of 5 sessions will hardly let you get into a flow and becomes an annoyance more than anything else. If I'm incorrect I will gladly amend or delete this review.

Developer Response

This is fixed in version 3.0. You can set the default number of reps per drill up to 50. Also, now you can use strings to create "sets of reps." Enjoy!
