Drill: Five Second Standards by Pat Mac
Pat McNamara, a former US Army Special Operations soldier, is a highly regarded firearms instructor that puts emphasis on physical fitness as well as high level marksmanship.
This drill, the Five Second Standard, is a basic assessment of your skill. Each string of fire adds more skills, and is more difficult. The par time and accuracy standard remains the same however.
Target: USPSA target
Distance: 7 Yards
Time: Five seconds per string
Standards: Pass/Fail. Anything outside the A zone is a miss. Any misses are a failure of the drill.
String 1: from the ready, raise and fore 2 shots into the A zone.
String 2: from the holster, draw and fire 2 shots into the A zone.
String 3: from the holster, draw and fire 2 shots into the A zone using the strong hand ONLY.
As you can see, the drill increases in skills needed, but the time remains the same. As soon as you can do this in 5 seconds, work toward 4 seconds. Continue to work and progress.
