I guess it depends on how you view it. I prefer to think of it as familiarization training and testing potential application viability. As an example I can draw my carry gun upside down with my off hand and fire using my pinky on the trigger. I cannot do this with my practice gun as it does not have the modifications that my carry gun has. Something I consider valuable to know.
i have a set of cotten gloves that i wear when i am cleaning my guns, after each cleaning i wash the gloves, that way i can let the oil just soak into the finger of the glove and use my finger to lube the gun, obviously except for parts i cant get too, but it makes cleaning and lubing alot easier to wear cotten gloves

Well of course, it's a new toy. And besides, you gotta take it apart and clean it at least once before it hits the range. Have to admit though I hadn't thought about that clever glove trick...
I still have a nickle-plated Colt Python in .357 that I bought about 15 years ago that I have never shot. That gun was introduced when I was just a kid and I knew I eventually had to have one - even if I wasn't going to use it. I do wipe it down occasionally.....

Didn't anyone ever teach you not to fondle your gun lest you shoot your eye out?
