    I'm not a competition shooter and am not familiar with too many drills, so I searched a few sites for drills and came up empty, so I decided to make up a drill for this month. Another member once mentioned a rifle drill similar to the one we're going to shoot, but I think it is beneficial for pistol as well. I'm going to call it the Addict's Side-Step.

    Paint 2 lines on the ground (or set up a few pop cans or any other type of visual aid) six feet apart and 10 yards from the target.
    Target will be an 8" circle. It can be a steel plate, the IDPA A zone, a paper plate, etc. (not everyone has an IDPA target, but every member out there can get their hands on a paper plate or piece of paper and a marker)
    Start with hands relaxed at sides, facing downrange, standing to the left of the first marker.
    At the start signal, draw and fire 2 rounds.
    Move sideways to the right of 2nd marker 6' away and fire 2 rounds.
    Move to the left of 1st marker and fire 3 rounds.
    Move to right of 2nd marker while reloading and fire 2 rounds.
    Finally, move to left of 1st marker and fire 3 rounds.

    To put it more simply...12 rounds and 4 movements
    2 shots and move
    2 shots and move
    3 shots and move and reload
    2 shots and move
    3 shots

    Scoring is easy and on the honor system. Fastest time wins, and any shots outside of target lines will be a miss with a 1 second penalty.

    This will get the heart rate up a bit if shooting or dry firing more than a few times. I believe it is beneficial in a few ways. It will help gain the ability to aggressively move from one position to another, while losing sight picture and having to regain it on target as quickly as possible. For the reload, it does not have to be from slide-lock. If you choose to reload on the move instead of after the move, it will help in learning how to balance that aggressive movement with the finer motor skill of the reload.

    Winner will get $75 dollars by paypal or a gift card, and I believe one of the new Addicts challenge coins.


    Good luck and be safe!!

    For those of us that like a visual course of fire! :D Spruced it up a little, as I am setting this up at Ed's shoot to try and drum up some more shooters!!

    Cool! I can't find any matches this weekend so I'll post up a run either Saturday or Sunday.

    Great job on the visual aid, KY! Mine would've been chicken scratches on a paper towel, lol.

    Hope you're able to get a few more shooters to join in on this one, and possibly get them hooked on participating in upcoming ones.

    Question:

    Can we run these with Red Dots, or will that disqualify me?

    Just picked up a nice Ed Brown SF with RMR and I'd love to run it through these drills.

    It may hurt my time until I get familiar with it. But just wondering if an Optic run would count?

    I say it is fine but not the guy holding this months competition. It's for fun anyway.

    At these distances, I don't see @Jollyroger1 having any advantage. And that's after hours upon hours of dry fire practice. Which does a poor job of simulating actual dot bounce from live fire. ;)

    I like this drill...good for moving and reloading and shooting after getting your heart rate up...good training for USPSA and other things....Unfortunately, my indoor range doesn't allow drawing from the holster (retarded....they feel it's a liability :o.o::mad:) and there isn't 6' of width in the booths...so I'm out this month....maybe next month...

    I was wrong. We got nailed with a storm so I checked the weather and it's looking to last all weekend. The outdoor range will be flooded and the indoor range doesn't allow movin' and groovin'. Next weekend!

    When I was a yung'n, I was told not to run with scissors or a knife in my hand, and you want me to run with a gun???


    Cool!!

    I ran this a few times today with the Baer Recon I just got from Jolly. The good news is the gun is excellent, runs like a champ! The bad news is all the movement doesn't exactly help my slow shooting. Very glad I can shoot at home vs a public range as I probably looked like a monkey trying to hump a football. Great drill, looking forward to getting better over the course of the month. Good times

    OK, I'll be the first to post a time.
    16.96 was the best of 4 runs today. I'm sure a couple of you guys will smoke this time right off the bat.
