When you are holding your AR-15 rifle, you will want to demonstrate to those around you that it is in a safe condition. The best way to do this is to ensure there is no magazine in the mag well, and then lock the bolt back showing that the action is clear. In this video, Tatiana Whitlock coaches you through a dry-fire session of the steps to locking your rifle bolt back.
Peeking at the target between shots delays your ability to quickly recover your sights and get your next shot on target. It also shifts your mental focus away from the task at hand (your fundamentals of grip, stance, trigger press, etc.) to the target, which can be assessed later.
