Static Range Drills
by S. B-D
Practice session - 300 Rounds*
50 rounds - 25 yards - Draw and fire 2 shots. Your objective is to shoot as fast as possible but still get A zone hits. Do a tactical reload before reholstering to practice this maneuver as well.
50 rounds - 7 yards - Draw and fire 6 shots into A zone as fast as possible (under 3 seconds is a good time). Keep practicing your tactical reloads.
50 rounds - 10 yards - Load 3 rounds into each magazine. Draw and fire 2 shots to the body and 1 to the head, perform a tactical reload or reload with retention and fire 2 more shots to the body and 1 to the head. This drill works on transition from a bigger “aggressive target” to a smaller “accurate shot” type target.
50 rounds - 7 yards - Put 2 targets out. Load 4 rounds into each magazine. Draw and fire 2 shots at each target, perform a slide lock reload and engage each target again with 2 shots.
40 rounds - 7 yards - Start with gun in weak (support) hand at low-ready. On the signal, raise the gun and fire 2 shots.
50 rounds - 7 yards - Draw and fire 2 shots with your strong hand only.
10 rounds - 25 yards - Fire 10 rounds for bull's-eye. Take your time and make each shot count. Concentrate on breathing, trigger control, and sight alignment.
*If you are pressed for time and/or ammo money like most of us, you may also divide each required round count into.
