What is the best handgun to use with dry fire training systems like the Mantis X?

Train with the gun you plan to carry or at least one very similar!

With the unprecedented ammo shortages we have now in 2021, shooters serious about keeping their skills tuned in have transitioned most of their range time to dry fire training and systems like the Mantis X – Live Fire And Dry Fire Training System.

Many might now say what they thought was a ridiculous, unnecessary, or even worst feature of a striker fired handgun, being a double strike or re-strike capable, has quickly become a favorite when racking a slide three hundred times with their Glock slows down training because it hurts!

One of the best guns for the money in my opinion, especially for price and availability and considering it’s close similarity to Glock feel and trigger, is a Taurus G3C or even the G2C. Both of these cheaper guns, even cheaper than some realistic training guns feature a double strike or re-strike feature. Basically a double action striker fired pistol that you don’t have to rack the slide each time before your next dry fire shot.

After testing the Mantis X2 for strictly dry fire training, I have now purchased and am very happy with the Mantis X Laser Academy Kit to help with shot placement. The Taurus and those like them give us the ability to get more trigger time without tearing our hands up or having to wear one glove just to rack a slide or have to add a charging device like the Recover Tactical Charging Handles For Glocks just to enable easier charging.

NBC News – 3 dead in murder-suicide over snow removal dispute, prosecutors say

Prosecutors said a man in Pennsylvania shot and killed a couple in a murder-suicide over a snow removal dispute on Monday, the same day a major winter storm dumped more than 30 inches of snow in parts of the Northeast.

Jeffrey Spaide fatally shot his neighbors, James Goy and his wife, Lisa Goy, before killing himself on Monday morning when officers were called to West Bergh Street in Plains Township, about 15 miles southwest of Scranton, according to the Luzerne County District Attorney’s Office.

The real purpose of mandatory masks

“It’s just a mask…”, “Just wear a mask, it’s not a big deal…”, “We all should wear masks. If masks work, they will save lives, and if they don’t work, they cannot hurt anybody, but they help people feel safe.”

We all heard these arguments many times. The last statement is probably the most important because since July 2020 medical community knew that covid-19 is an airborne transmitted disease that cannot be stopped by surgical and cloth masks. But, even if masks have no medical purpose, they don’t hurt anyone…” Or, maybe they do. Could it be that there is a reason why Americans were always famous for their smiles and spent thousands of dollars on dental health and good looking teeth? What masks do?

Let’s take a look at the photos of children in the USSR. Different children, different ages, various schools, the same faces with no smiles. I still remember our teachers yell at us and demand us to stop smiling. “Don’t smile! Why are you smiling as idiot Americans? Stop smiling! ” So, one of the most memorable messages Soviet people learned in Soviet free for all, mandatory for all schools from teachers they couldn’t choose was that:

Americans smile because they are stupid. 

Smiles are bad. 

Americans are bad. Americans are enemies. 

Americans are the only people who smile at strangers. 

We must be afraid of strangers who smile at us because they are our enemies.

But why communist ideologists hated smiles? What smiles do? The answer to this question could be found in the book written by Konrad Lonrenz On Aggression.

And, we need to understand the difference between a free democratic society and a totalitarian regime.

A Totalitarian society is a society ruled by a tyrant or a small group of tyrants. It is a society in which “everybody is equal, but some are more equal than others.”

A free democratic society is a society of FREE individuals. Free individuals are individuals who are capable and willing to defend themselves and their property. Free individuals are independent individuals who are ARMED and therefore are not afraid of strangers. 

Human beings did not always make their weapons. In the beginning, teeth were their weapon. The same as open carry often helps avoid unnecessary conflict, genuine smiles that show healthy teeth subconsciously help us be afraid less of strangers and avoid needless aggressiveness. The same as firearms, smiles make us free; they make us equal. 

So, what happens when genuine smiles are banned? What happens when little children are raised to believe that they must cover their faces and not exchange smiles because their smiles can kill? They grow up to be afraid of being independent. They grow up to be afraid of being armed. They grow up to be afraid of being equal and free. They grow up to be slaves. 

If Americans will continue to agree with mask mandates, if they will continue to agree to cover their children’s mouths with pieces of cloths because these pieces of cloths make somebody ‘feel safe’, very soon, gun confiscation would not be an issue. It will be done on a voluntary basis with full support from the vast majority of the population. Slaves don’t need dangerous things. Slave owners do a much better job of protecting their property from being damaged. And, if smiles can kill a grandma, can you imagine the horrible things that a bullet can do?
