    Try these two drills on for size

    The F.A.S.T. is something we can all do to improve our time and accuracy standards. Start slow and work your way up. A buddy can time you or use a SHOT timer.

    F.A.S.T. Drill
    designed by Todd Green

    Range: 7 yards
    Target: 35 card (head), 8″ plate (body)
    Start position: weapon concealed or in duty condition with all holster retention devices active; shooter facing downrange in relaxed stance with arms down at sides
    Rounds fired: 6

    Shooter loads gun with a total of two rounds. On start signal, shooter draws and fires two rounds at the head target; performs a slidelock reload; and fires four rounds at the body target.

    Ranking:

    10+ seconds: Novice
    less than 10 seconds: Intermediate
    less than 7 seconds: Advanced
    less than 5 seconds: Expert


    If shooter is using a retention holster and flap (covered) magazine pouches, subtract 0.5 seconds from the recorded time. If shooter is using an open-top retention holster (e.g., Blackhawk SERPA or Safariland ALS) with no concealment, add 0.50 seconds to the recorded time.

    Want to really test yourself try this one. Notice the scores posted at the top and you will see some impressive names on the list.

    "A first rate man with a third rate gun is far better than the other way around". The gun is a tool, you are the craftsman that makes it work. There are those who say "if I had to do it, I could" yet they never go out and train to do it. Don't let stupid be your mindset. Harryball 2013

    Not un-doable, by any standard. I've been meaning to forward my video and collect my challenge coin on the first one!
