When practicing dry fire, it’s important to include weapon presentation. This is because drawing and/or presenting a firearm to the target uses muscles not commonly called upon during a normal day at the office.
Simply holding a handgun or rifle in the firing position takes strength. This is a hard activity to duplicate with any exercise other than dry fire. This is partly because you have to not only hold the firearm in front of your eyes and on target, you must also maintain the ability to use the fine motor skills required to manipulate the trigger.
