Drill: MSP, Black Belt Standards
Scott Jedlinski of Modern Samurai Project is a firearms instructor in the specific area of pistol mounted red dot sights. His courses have helped individuals, departments and agencies learn effective techniques and skills with the slide mounted red dot.
His drill standards are based on the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu belt ranking system, the best score being black belt. This is an exceedingly difficult standard to attain, as you will see. The following is from http://www.modernsamuraiproject.com.
To earn the MSP Black Belt Patch you must pass these four standards in one of my classes. They must be done in this order and consecutively. All standards are from concealment. If not concealed, then the following will be added to your time: Competition holster no retention - Add .20 seconds. (Time is 2.00 add .2 for total of 2.20) ALS + SLS - Subtract .2. ALS Only - No extra time added
