I shoot/dry fire a model 14 R & L hand regularly. Saves ammo and improves my trigger control. CCW 2 revolvers daily.

Whenever I go to the range to practice, I always alternate, one mag right then one mag left. Then I shoot single handed, one mag right, one mag left. Oddly , I don't shoot any better one hand over the other as far as grouping goes. I do shoot groups off to the right with my left hand. I'm right handed.

Sounds like a good routine.

While I think familiarity with the support hand is good, I'm not convinced that becoming equally proficient is necessary or even helpful.

I do shoot a mag or two with my support hand. When I do it's always with just that one hand. Let's face it, we're going to use our best hand when the chips are down anyway and if we're forced to shoot with the support hand, the firing hand is not available.

Trying to split time equally between hands is just taking quality practice away from the main hand.

I make myself shoot left handed.(
My weak hand)
I don't like to and I don't do it well.
That's why I do it.
