30 Rounds Well Spent


Tip:

This is an accuracy metric. It is unimportant what the score is the first time, just as long as you continue to improve each time. Focus is on the fundamentals; grip, sight alignment, trigger press, breathing and steady base.

The Target:

B-8 Bullseye target, but any 20” target will do.

The Drill:

25 yards

On signal, fire 5 rounds in one minute. It is best to fire these one at a time, coming back down to ready to take a couple of breaths and get ready to go again. Think of these as five individual, precisely aimed shots.

15 yards

2 strings:

First, on signal fire 5 rounds in 15 seconds. This is adequate time per shot to allow you to concentrate on getting a good sight picture and a smooth trigger press.

Second, on signal fire 5 rounds in 10 seconds. Cutting the time limit forces you to work on immediate follow through and an appropriate cadence.

7 yards

Start with only 5 rounds in the pistol, and have a spare magazine, speedloader, speed strip or whatever you use for fast reloading on your person.

On signal, fire 5 rounds, reload, and fire 5 more rounds, all in 15 seconds.

5 yards.

On signal, fire 5 rounds in 5 seconds.control, follow through, proper cadence, and reloading skill, all in one string.

That’s it. You have fired 30 rounds total, for a maximum possible score of 300 points.
