I got to thinking from a couple of other posts that showed target results that it would be sort of cool to see the results from some of our training and do a little “humble bragging.” So with guidance from Dawn I’ve started this thread.
To be clear, we all hope to never have to use these skills, but we should take pride in the training that we do in order to be a proficient as possible should a threat arise and we find need to use them. This is not about scoring “kill shots” but rather proficiency/accuracy (deer, elk, etc target kill shots being the exception)
So with that in mind please feel free to post some training targets that you’re happy with, the reason you’re happy with them and maybe some details around the type of training you were doing and why.
@Dawn please keep us within the guidelines of what we chatted about…
I’ll start it off with a handgun target from my last range session (you can see some of the details written in the top right already). .40 S&W, Ruger SR40c (my standard carry pistol), 7yds, three drills:
1. Draw from conceal fire 2x (30rds)
2. Draw from conceal fire 2x three separate targets 1yd apart (this is target #1, I didn’t post other two)
3. From low read accuracy 9 consecutive rapid (1sec) shots (triangle, 9rd magazine)
I was working on these drills as standard training for the average threat type I think I would most likely encounter.
I have work to do (notice the 10 rounds outside of the box) normally my second shot going astray (I’m still working on aiming with both eyes open).
However all of the times for drill #1 were under 2.25 seconds from conceal (and even the misses with the exception of one were very near center mass) and I’m pretty happy about that.
Ok, who’s got next?
