    I found this drill, and thought it looked good.

    Since I'm shooting a 1911 with 8 round mags, I thought we could modify it to go 3, 5, 7, and 9 yards in 3, 5, 7, and 9 seconds.

    Draw from open carry. Misses add one second per miss. Add up total time for all four yardages. Lowest total time wins.

    Watcha all think?

    I think I am doing last place this month. (So what else is new?)

    A "Post It Note"? @ 9 yds.? Me? Yeah..... right. In 9 seconds?...with a .45.? Bwahahahaha

    Good thing I just bought 10,000 bullets and primers.

    Well, I went out and tried it today.

    I ran it twice, and did better the second time through. The first run was cold.

    I put glue on the back of the sticky notes to get it to lay down on the paper better, but I think I'm going to attach them to cardboard next time. I think it will be a little easier to see the hits as the paper will tear less.

    I added the times up at the top of each target. [​IMG][​IMG]

    I gave this a try today while practicing. It’s a lot harder than it sounds, especially at 9yds! The best I managed was 24.25 total. I never did manage all 9 shots at 9yds in 9sec.

    I’ve been shooting the STI tactical a lot lately. I’m gonna give that gun a shot this month. It’s so easy to shoot, it’s like the gun refuses to miss!

    Got a chance to run this today. Was a perfect day on the range, sunny and cool. 3B57F012-CEE0-466A-8C7A-CACAD7A112E0.jpeg
    I decided to run this drill a few times, but also do a little experimenting. I have an STI tactical in 9 and 45. They are identical other than caliber. I was much faster and more accurate with the 9(no real surprise there). But, it was interesting to see the difference in times.

    My first cold run with the 9 was 19.96 clean. I video taped this run, but am not savvy enough to post video. 99DA7542-34D0-4DCF-B3E6-1D939CEFF60B.jpeg
    My best run with the 45 was 22.73. That time is with two misses. I couldn’t seem to be able to run the 45 clean today. 89CE97A3-F935-465F-951D-2B29DE10BFB4.jpeg
    Both the above runs were with Winchester white box ammo. For my final run, I decided to run my reloads through the 9. I ran it in 17.39 with on miss on final target. 54A65E84-FAFC-4BB5-AA79-0797C76709D9.jpeg

    I’ll post my time of 22.73 with the 45 as my official time, since I carry a 45. 75114D8C-EBB9-428C-985E-CC86DF4F06AF.png

    Ethank, I think your 19.96 run should count as the best time so far.

    I never specified it had to be your carry gun

    Great shooting, by the way!

    x2 @Ethank I think you should count the 9mm run as well. You ran it and you earned it. Nice pieces by the way.

    I agree with both gentlemen above @Ethank. You shot it, you own it!
    VERY well done. That will be hard (for me anyway) to beat!!! Talk about setting the bar! ;)

    Well, it seems unanimous, Ethank is the man to beat so far!

    I may take my bride’s Sentinel for a spin at the indoor range. I can’t draw because we don’t have a holster yet, but I’ll push out.

    I’ve always been a fan of aiming small, so the Post-It thing is right up my alley.
