I always suggest that you should train often. But most of the time we get out there to shoot and we don’t know WHAT to train. This drill will help you dial in your focused training sessions in only 20 rounds. We borrowed this from the Rangemaster bank of drills, because it is a really great drill.
In my most recent running of this, I found that I was deficient in my 1 handed shooting….so I worked on my 1 handed shooting for the day and will hit 1 handed dry fire practice and then re-visit this. You too will be able to assess exactly where your weakness is and what you should work on, in just 20 rounds.

There is a potential for 200 points (20 rounds x 10 points each)
This drill is meant to be shot COLD, meaning the first drill you shoot of the day. an instructor level shooter, should be able to shoot 190 points or better regularly. Arguably, if you carry a gun for self defense, you too should be able to shoot this at 190 or better “on demand”. But if you are just getting into self defense, just shoot this, focus your training, dry fire and then go back to the range and see how much better you are.
