I got this drill from the October 2022 Rangemaster newsletter compiled by Tom Givens. The drill was developed by Tom and requires a free printed target from Lee’s Weems’ website (opens to PDF.)
The directions are as follows:
The circle at the top is 5.5” in diameter, the same as the “black” of a B-8 bullseye. Inside the circle is a 3X5 card, and inside it is a 3”X3” square. Below are two 3” circles, designated 1 and 2. We will score it as follows:
Hits inside the 3X5 card = 5 points.
Hits inside the circle around the 3X5, but not in the 3X5 count 4 points.
Hits in the 3” circles, 1 and 2, count for 5 points.
20 rounds total Possible score = 100
5 yards Draw and fire 5 rounds to the 3X5 in 5 seconds.
5 yards Start gun in hand, dominant hand only, to the 3X5, fire 3 rounds in 3 seconds.
5 yards Start gun in non-dominant hand only, to the 3X5, fire 2 rounds in 3 seconds.
7 yards Start gun in hand, loaded with 3 rounds only. Fire 3 rounds to 1, conduct an empty reload, and fire 3 rounds to 2 all in 10 seconds
10 yards Start gun in hand, fire 4 rounds in 4 seconds to the 3X5.
All strings that say “gun in hand” start at The Ready, muzzle off target, pointed at the ground in front of the shooter until start signal.
I ran this one cold last week. It had been three weeks since I had shot my pistol, so I was a bit rusty.
With my Glock 19 from a Spencer Keepers appendix holster. I made all the times.
First run- 90 points
Second run- 92 points
Third run- 77 points (misses on the small circles hurt)
Then, just for fun I ran the drill with my .22 Ruger LCP II out of a Desantis Nemesis pocket holster placed in my right front pocket.
Drawing from the pocket and operating the safety made the times a bit spicier but I made them. Unfortunately, I only shot a score of 68 points with the little gun.
This is a fun drill and I think you’ll enjoy it. Give it a try during your next practice session.
