    There is a difference between shooting drills designed to work some aspect of shooting, and tactical drills that work something that you will be doing during a fight.

    This is a shooting drill. It works them about shooting while continuously moving instead of moving and stopping when they shoot. It can also be used as an illustration of limits to range of motion/arc of coverage as you change the angle to the target and/or as a drill to shooting at more acute angles than we normally do at the range. With one add it can become a transition drill.

    But it is not a tactical drill. For full development you can't make everything a tactical drill. In many if not most tactical drills you need to already know the things you learn doing the shooting and weapon manipulation drills. It doesn't work nearly as well if at all to learn that through a tactical drill.

    I am surprised that the instructor did not stop the show at least for a few minutes to have a discussion with the student. Like, "what just happened here and what are we going to do to see that it does not happen again." Just say'n

    its an acuity drill.. the distraction of movement is causing you to focus on eye, hand, and a changing target angle. Training is not always about mirroring some specific task you expect to perform. When is a soldier ( in combat) going to swim to the bottom of a pool and pick up of 3 stones and a harmonica? ... its not about that.

    He still had at least five left on the other hand so keep shooting, lol. It looked like he was trying to do a two-handed draw from the holster, the only problem with this drawing method is that one arm needs to be about 6" inches longer so they can get there at the same time and then fight over who gets to hold the pistol.

    After another viewing, I think that his problem may be that he's hasn't trained enough with gloves on, and/or that pistola is just too darned big for him.
