One of the best training aids available for dry fire drills
Tap Rack Training Aid (TRT) 3 Pack
9mm/.40, .45, or 5.56 available.
The TRT was developed at the Rogers Shooting School to provide a safer and more efficient way to practice certain dry fire drills. To safely practice dry fire or reloading drills with the magazine in place, the slide needs to operate without being locked back by the follower.
For immediate action drills (tap, rack, fire) the operator needs to be able to re-seat the magazine in the pistol, rack the action, and then accomplish the dry fire exercise. These practice drills normally require the use of “dummy” rounds. Besides the nuisance of having to load and pick up the ejected dummies, there is always the chance that a live round can be introduced.
The TRT allows the operator to practice the drills without using dummy rounds and eliminates the possibility of accidentally loading a live round during the exercise. When loaded into an empty magazine, the TRT will position the follower so that it will not engage the slide stop. Its low profile allows the slide to pass over it without stripping it from the magazine.
For practicing reloading, start with an unloaded magazine to lock the slide back. At the start signal release the empty magazine and insert the magazine with TRT. Drop the slide and complete the dry fire snap on target. With immediate action drills, start with the TRT magazine not completely seated. Dry fire the action and upon the “click” of the hammer or striker, seat the magazine, rack the slide, and complete the dry fire action.
For standard dry fire practice with magazine seated, simply insert magazine with TRT and operate the slide to cock the action before each presentation and dry fire. To remove the TRT from the magazine use a pencil or any small tool and engage the small port molded in the top of the TRT.
The TRT loads into an empty 9MM/.40/.45/5.56 cal magazine
The TRT is perfect for use during dry fire training
The TRT keeps the magazine follower positioned so that it will not engage the slide stop of the pistol
Designed such that the slide of the pistol can pass over the TRT without stripping it from the magazine
3 TRT's per pack
I’ve been focusing on doing more dry fire drills to help with my muscle memory and speed and when I found this tool I got super pumped!! I bought the multi pack and let’s just say I’m using them so much my wife is getting annoyed!Worth every dime!!
The Tap Rack Training Aid is a great...training aid. This device helps make dry fire sessions more productive while eliminating the frustration of the pistol continuously going into slidelock and slowing repetitions. Words as advertised. Great tool.
Great training tool!
Great training tool!
Been giving these out to clients that have attended my classes. They work exactly as they should and allow the magazine to remain in the gun. This tool allows direct feedback to people to see first off, their 'over-reaction' to expected muzzle jump and safe handling of their gun. From there it serves right in to trigger pull/press, and allows for safe practice at home. I highly recommend Sheepdog Response Tap-Rack Training Aid.

Awesome training tool that really helps with dry firing.
These are very valuable tools for dry fire training. I highly recommend them. Buy some today!
I’ve been looking for something like this for my dry-fire training and it’s perfect. Highly recommend for everyone. Inexpensive way to take your shooting to the next level.
These are bad ass ! Allows you to cylce your weapon and get the trigger pull without all of that noise and stuff lol
Great for dry-fire practice. Wife and i are putting in the work to be better.
One of my favorite training aids i own..
Changed my dry fire/draw drills for the better, undoubtedly. The weight addition of an empty mag to my Glock balanced it out just that much more, evening out my draw and sight acquisition.
My first thought was honestly that a dinky little piece of plastic wasn't going to affect those drills, but once I tried it out I immediately recommended it to friends and family.
It's an excellent training tool. I don't have to pick up practice rounds from the floor. It stays in place in the magazine and keeps the slide from locking back. I'm happy with the product and tell others about it. Good job guys!
Great idea! Immediately experiencing improvement in dry fire drills at home in a single day. The shear number of controlled draw-to-fire-to-holster cycles I can do, without adjusting grip, is amazing. My primary EDC has a grip extension on the mag, so dry fire without it never was realistic. I’m already promoting these and will be on gift lists for Christmas and birthdays. Love it!
I really like how the Tap Rack training device lets me use my mags as if a round is chambered and keeps me from having to release the slide each time. The AR-15 training aid works very well, as do the other calibers and has helped me have more effective dry fire training sessions.
I really like how the Tap Rack helps me with my dry fire training, it keeps me from having to use the slide release every time I rack the slide. It works well and I plan to purchase additional ones for my other calibers.
They work exactly as they should, really happy with the product!
Great for dry firing practice
I bought all 3 different sizes, I try out 9MM one so far. I find it a very useful tool. I can see the other sizes will sting great too.
These are an incredible tool to train with ! Highly recommend
Great experience all around. Shipping was prompt, product worked as advertised. I couldn't be happier.
