There's no substitute for range time, but developing a consistent draw and presentation is critical to improving accuracy. You can do that with this Red trainer. No, it won't help you with reloading drills, and the safety and the trigger don't move, but if you get to the point where your motion is instinctive, then you will maximize the effectiveness of your time and ammo on the line.And of course, it's invaluable for training others, and you don't have to lock it up after each use. This is key if you have kids around. To summarize, if practicing is convenient, you do more of it. The grip of this trainer is probably better than you'll have on your real 1911, unless you have fine checkering on the grip.
