This is a simple drill of ten rounds at 10 feet into a 10 inch target. Then you move back 10 more feet and shoot ten rounds in a 10 inch target and after you get the 10 rounds on target repeat again 10 feet further and you can repeat this as many times as you can, depending on your range. See how far away you can successfully do this. Pushing the limits on the distance and having accuracy. This training has taken my accuracy at close range and improved upon it. Speeding up my shots at close distance with greater accuracy. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
I do a similar drill on point and shoot, no aiming. Start at 5 yards, empty magazine fast as I can from draw. If all rounds are on target mark the time, back up and repeat.
Personal best is 20 yards in 7.8 seconds from draw to empty 14 rounds. All on torso. Did try to ride recoil on last round and go for head but hit neck instead.
What are your thoughts on training to music, that particular day I had 2 sets of noise cancelling on, one headset over ear buds. I’ve found music helped alot.
Todd30, is this a timed drill, holsterd then returned for the next shot?
Sounds like a nice drill, but my range won’t let you draw and fire.
These are my two small targets for accuracy working out from 3, 5, 7, 10 and 15 yards. 4 inch circles and a 10 inch.
This is not initially a timed exercise. The objective is small tight patterns. Build the accuracy before speed. It doesn’t matter how fast you are if you miss. You can build speed as long as you have accuracy.
@Todd30 can you do this with a dry fire laser?. my gun is a s/a, I would have to rack after every shoot.
With racking the slide after every shot you gonna change drill’s objective.
You won’t be exercising accuracy with follow shots. But it still be a nice drill to practice firearm presentation (extend, shoot, bring to the chest, rack, extend, shoot) in different distances.
@Jerzy Thanks for the input, I’ll try it.
If you have laser and some extra stuff (app, or multiple i-targets) most of range drills can be adopted and practiced at home.
I’ve been doing this for 3 months already. What I love - no “range limitation” . I can practice draw from the holster, rapid fire, multiple targets - everything what is prohibited at my Range
… however I miss gunpowder smell and recoil…
I practice at home with a practice training gun. My range does not allow drawing either. I practice my drawing for 5 minutes a day.
I just got the G Sight laser 9mm and tripod today, I haven’t tried it yet. still trying to figure out, how to train.
I use a lasir dry fire gun at home and if you can set up the distance I would do it. I can only go back 30 feet at the house but I have a field behind my house I can get 100 yards on. On this training your wanting to hone in on your accuracy so, one shot at a time is just fine.
I like it! Add stress by timing yourself. Push yourself by taking it back to 12 yards. All you can do is get better!
@Derek, if you want to practice this from “drawing”, there is a simple solution. Instead of “drawing from the holster” you “pick the firearm from the bench”. All movements are very similar - once you bring the firearm close to you chest, you meet second hand and extend.
Real holster draw - like @Todd30 mentioned - can be practiced at home
OK, cool, I want to train as much as possible, but make every move count, and not wast time on things that won’t help me, in time of need.
Also hold it at a low ready. If you are alert to your surrounding and you know something is going down you need to have it in this position at the ready.
Use search icon next to your avatar and type in: “laser training”. You will find 3 - 4 threads how to use laser with targets and apps.
@Jerzy Thank you, will do
@Todd30 Thank you very much for the info, I will put it to good use
