Triple Ten Drill
Run this drill at 7 yards. You will need 30 rounds of ammunition, your firearm, three magazines, and holster for your firearm and two magazines. Load 10 rounds into each of your 3 magazines. Load one magazine into your firearm, make ready and holster it. Draw your firearm and shoot all 10 rounds into one of the circles. When empty, reload and proceed to the next circle. Repeat with your last magazine. Run this drill using a shot timer to measure your progress.
Throttle Control Drill
Run this drill at 5 yards with a shot timer. You will need one magazine with 10 rounds loaded. Draw from holster and engage each circle. I’d recommend starting with the largest target first and going in any order from there. Any shot outside the circle will add 1 second to your overall time. Work on the tightest groups possible. Run the drill slower if you are missing too many circles or if your group starts to grow. Tight shot groups should alert you that you can speed up your shots.
Run this drill at 3 to 5 yards. The focus here is on shooting at a certain tempo. Shoot 5 rounds into each circle while speeding up your tempo. Start by counting off aloud: 1 one-thousand, 2 one-thousand, 3 one-thousand, 4 one-thousand, 5 one-thousand. Increase your tempo on the next circle: one-and-two-and-three-and-four-and-five. Keep speeding up your tempo. Increase your tempo again: 1-2-3-4-5. Continue speeding up or slowing down so all shots are in the circle.
Cadence Circle Drill
Run this drill starting at 3 yards. You will need three magazines loaded with 5 rounds each. Each row is one sting of fire. Reload and move to next row. Run this drill at a set tempo similar to the Cadence drill above but incorporates one shot on each circle. Start by counting off aloud: 1 one-thousand, 2 one-thousand, 3 one-thousand, 4 one-thousand, 5 one-thousand. You will be shooting one round into each circle. Increase your tempo on the next row of circles: one-and-two-and-three-and-four-and-five. Increase your tempo again on the last row: 1-2-3-4-5. The row of circles are progressively larger in each row as you need increase your tempo.
Shooting at a 1″ circle really shows you fundamental issues that can be quickly diagnosed.
