    Results of my wife's one handed triple tap shooting drills

    I have been working with my wife, who is an excellent shot, on different variations of time proven methods of shooting skills that are more defensive in nature than target oriented.

    She will be leaving for Texas this summer to help her family start a restaurant, and will be taking her (my) G26.

    So, today because of the threat of rain, we went to Buds Indoor Range and ran some drills at 10 yards. Ammo was 1-50 round box of Speer Gold Dot 124 +p HP's from my "stock pile" of that ammo, which is probably getting to be 10 years old by now.

    The course of fire, is three rounds, 2 shots to the body, and 1 shot to the head fired as fast as possible. From previous sessions with her, using a shot timer, I know she shoots on average this drill in 1.6 seconds.

    The kicker here is she must alternate between strong and weak hand for each 3 shot volley.

    I feel she is defintely capable of holding her own, as the target shows. Sure, there was a few misses during the transition to the head, but those were all weak hand. She not quite where I want her yet, but I am really confident she is ready.

    Yup, that targets dead. Nice shooting to Mrs. Gman. Say goodbye to the G26. ; )

    Not bad.

    For my reference do you consider a 1.6 sec triple tap slow, average, or fast? Sometimes it is hard for me to get a gauge on what is considered exceptional or fast when we are dealing with something that only takes one or two seconds to do.

    By my standards, to shoot 3 rounds with a G26 double tap to the chest and 1 to the head and keep them in the zone that tight is pretty damn good. Now, I could have her do it faster, but my curriculum for her is to balance good hits with speed.

    This is the way I emphasis to all of my students. Speed is essential, but accuracy is final. And considering that most men would have trouble doing that with a "two handed" grip, but she is using one hand for both left and right, I would say she is pretty good, but will get better.

    I'd say she's really good. I wouldn't volunteer to hold her target for her.

    I might try this approach the next time I'm at the range. I've never really tried triple taps (2 COM, 1 head) like you were doing. I'll probably place more emphasis on getting the groupings together and then notching the speed up once the groupings are good. What distance do you keep the target at?

    Durn. That's good enough with all criteria. If she gets better....it probably don't matter. Very nice.

    Good for you and your wife.

    Our local ranges do not allow "draw, bang bang" so my son-in-law (and sometimes the grandkids) and I go 15 miles North West of town and shoot into a mountain. Typically we use two silhouette targets; draw, two to center of mass and one to the head on each target. It is amazing how little extra time it takes to careful aim. We have been doing this most every Friday for about a year. We don’t shoot much, maybe 50 rounds each outing but it is quality time. My #1 grandson is 15 and shoots his M&P .22 very well. #2 grandson is 11 and very proficient with his Christmas Henry .22 lever gun. All up, I believe it is the consistent practice that makes the difference and of course, the kids love it.
