Tap Rack Training Aid

Bill Rogers of the Rogers Shooting School is now selling a product designed to assist with dry fire and malfunction drill training.  The Tap Rack Training Aid loads into the top of a pistol magazine and prevents the follower from engaging the slide stop.

The Tap Rack Training Aid is sold in packs of 3, 20 and 100.  A 3-pack goes for $5 plus shipping.

  • Bill Roger’s has sent TFB some of the Tap/Rack Training Aids to TFB for review. Stand-by for them sometime next week!

    I dunno. Frankly, I can’t imagine training anyone without the use of inert rounds, which can be used for this same purpose without having to maintain a specialized, second type of inert ammo. The use of standard inert ammo can also illustrate what happens when you screw up – no round ejects or chambers, or some other malf occurs.

    But that’s just me.

    Why not just do the drills without the magazine in at all…

    Or, if you really want the magazine in (reloading drills or something), take the spring/follower out of the magazine…

    • Adam Skrzypczak

      Taking the spring/follower out of a Glock magazine is a PITA.

    Not a fan of them honestly as you can tell when you’re about to have the malfunction. Having inert rounds mixed in magazines loaded by someone else adds a random element and really helps hammer home that malfunctions can happen at any time and not at the end of the magazine. I could see this as an addition to malfunction drills but I feel they really should have bundled it with a few training rounds for a “malfunction package”.

      Ok, now do that as a dry fire drill…

  • Dave

    Why not just use some snapcaps?

  • John Kelly

    I always thought that dry firing a gun was bad for the trigger mechanism and firing pun. Or is that just an urban myth?

    Looks good. I like how the use of this accessory was explained in the video. For related contents I’d also like to share my posts. Please click here.

    Would a dime work, or is that only for ARs?

  • Verner

    Do they ship international? I can’t seem to find out from their site FAQ.

    • I can email or call and ask. In the contacts section above email me and let me know which country and I’ll check for you.
