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!!
