Try this drill
I like standards drills. Though USPSA/IDPA type stages are fun and you have to apply numerous different skills to complete them, they are not consistent and give the shooter a measurable way to see if skill if truly improving. When I do training/classes I like standards drill to have no more than three skills or objectives. If you do not use a shot timer in training you cannot measure improvement.
The target is a NRA B8 "repair center" which is only the 8 and smaller ring, attached to the high center mass of a USPSA or IDPA target.
The drill is 5 separate par timed strings of fire, each being 5 rounds fired from 5 different distances and 5 different par times.
Distance / rounds / seconds
5 yds. 5 3
10 yds. 5 5
15 yds. 5 7
20 yds. 5 8
25 yds. 5 10
10 points per shot 250 total possible (corresponds with the scoring rings on the B8)
Shots fired over par time are minus 10
Shots outside the 8 ring are minus 10
Each string of fire begins with the loaded pistol in holster (wait till the timer beeps!)
I did not want this easy and a perfect score will be very difficult. I had several higher level cop shooters and competition shooters do this while determining what par times to establish.
Yea. Keep telling yourself that split times donít matter.
