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. ;-)

Awesome app! One major request though...

I am really enjoying this dry practice app. It is much more reasonably priced over its $99 counterpart. I can develop my skills, safely and for free (don’t have to buy ammo to dry practice). All that being said, it would be nice if we could download the drills so that the app could be used without internet. Some of the ranges I use are out of range. The app won’t work. I would love to have the timer even during firing drills. Maybe that function could be worked into a future update?

Thanks for the nice comments. To clarify: The app does NOT require the internet to run. All drills are stored locally, and will run even in airplane mode. Hope that helps.

Only up-to-date drill app

Searched for a while and was not impressed with the apps I was finding. Some of them had not been updated in at least a year, most of them over two years ago. Unacceptable.

This app does everything I need it to, for my defensive draw dry fire drills. I like the custom options a lot.

Most of all, I like that I can see the developer has recently interacted with their customers. I really appreciate this. Whenever a phone updates and creates bugs developers need to fix, I need to see the developer acknowledge and be transparent about their plan to fix it. Great job.

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.

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