    I use state land , so no range officials to worry about. Usually practice some multiple targets engagement at various distances. Also I shoot some 15 yrd. + distances. This summer will be setting up a walk thru peek and shoot course and may practice some shooting from vehicle stuff too.

    Cool

    My IDPA club usually specifies the number of rounds and whether or not target is behind partial hard cover so that a head shot is also indicated. You can actually check us out at http://www.tssa.net

    I'm lucky enough to have two ranges to use within ten minutes of my house. The first is a very nice, private indoor range. It has very restrictive rules. So, I use that range for marksmanship practice. 50-foot groups is what that range is good for . . . sight picture, trigger control, follow through . . . This range is literally ten blocks from my home. It is a well-lit, well ventilated and heated, private range. I have the keys and can shoot whenever I want.

    The other range is an outdoor range with a 270-degree berm that allows me to do almost anything that I want. The shooting bay is one big 25yd by 25yd area surrounded by berm. Turn and shoot? No problem. Draw, run, multiple targets? No problem. When there, I usually mix up some 5-10 yard work with lots of movement and after-action follow-ups and some extreme close quarters stuff. Starting with the target at just arms reach and moving in to the ranges where my forehead starts touching the target. These drills include ducking, blocking, hitting, and shielding while moving, accessing the firearm and shooting on the move to be followed with after-action assessments. It's an intense set of drills that would make the club officers at the other range go into cardiac arrest if they saw me doing them.

    I run IDPA matches once a month and try to always include some malfunction clearing, low-light shooting, and some extreme close range shooting.

    I run matches in Amarillo, Texas. We have a local club here and run about 5 matches per month and I run one of those. Some of the other guys are more sport oriented and tend to run gamier matches that involve high round counts and lots of run-and-gun fun. I try to make mine more like close-quarter civilian gunfights.

    What may be more important than range training is the dry-fire drills that I do at home. I've got a "blue gun" (a solid, hard, blue, rubber, exact detail, model of my SIG 226) with a cheap Fobus paddle holster that live permanantly in my living room. When I watch TV, I'll strap on the blue gun and do drills (maybe just as simple as stepping back and offline during a draw to retention/close contact position 10 times left and right) during commercial breaks.

    Also, I work out at home using a boxers ring timer shadow boxing, doing calesthenics, jumping rope, and wrestler's drills. The timer gives me ten 2-minute rounds of exercise with one minute breaks. I do knife flow drills and gun CQB drills during the one minute breaks about 3 times per week.

    Pyrolyzer, Wife and I took our dry-firing to the next stage. While at the SHOT Show we picked up a BeamHit 190 system. I will post a review when we get it.

    Neat! I tried an early version of that in the late-1980's or early 1990's. It was okay but ate expensive batteries quickly and would call something a hit if it was within 15-20 degrees of the target. I'll be eager to hear what improvemetns in technology have done for that.

    got a great deal on it at the SHOT Show. Walked up with a fistful of cash. Yes multiple calibers. Each additional caliber is $25. We ordered .223 and .44, and .45. IT is good for well over 40yds.

    here is info on the 390 system.

    the 390 Manual. The options it is capable of are amazing. You can go into a convenience store and video tape the layout and devise a scenario based on your own film footage.

    Ft. Benning Soldiers Set Records with BEAMHIT
    BEAMHIT Press Release

    The US Army Infantry Center Significant Activity (SIGACT) report today noted that soldiers of the Infantry Training Brigade set records for M16A2 qualification after training on BEAMHIT Marksmanship Training Systems. In a side-by-side comparison of BEAMHIT with the baseline Army training program, the following results were recorded:

    .........................Experts Sharpshooter Marksman First Time No Go
    BASELINE................16............34.......... .....38..............18
    BEAMHITTM............ 32*..........38...............26...............4


    *Includes 7 PERFECT scores

    The test split one company of soldiers into two groups. Two platoons trained using the standard Army program of instruction (POI). The two BEAMHITTM platoons used a POI developed by the US Army Reserve Small Arms Training Team (SATT). The results showed a 100% improvement in expert qualifications and a 450% advantage in cutting the number of first time NO GO's ('bolo's). The record of 7 prefect scores from two platoons has been described as, "An incredible result" by senior Army representatives.
