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 reseat 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. Simple to remove from your magazine.
