    I did a short write-up on trigger control and Dot Torture (https://gunpowdermeditation.com/2017/10/10/dot-torture-drill/) and thought I'd see if you guys wanted to play along, shoot it, and post your targets.

    Attached is the PDF target, just print it out and follow the instructions. Start at 3 yards and when you can clean the target bump it back a yard and try again. It gets really hard really fast!

    My target shot at 3 yards. I need to tighten up my one-handed shooting, I had a round break the line on both the strong and support hand circles.

    Good job on your dot torture!

    Here's my dot torture, but maybe a less formal, and at 7 meters. 21 shots

    I need this. My marksmanship on my last to range trips was bad. I’m still shooting “A”s but they are all over the place.

    It's not completely sacrilegious, it's got 1911 style controls. ;) One day I'll upgrade to a Wilson EDC X9!

    If I don't stay on top of it my weak hand shooting goes right out the window.

    Dot Torture is one of my favorite drills.

    I bought a pack of these targets a few months back and gave them a whirl. I'm not typically one to curse a lot, but that first afternoon at the range with them changed that. Still not convinced someone didn't toss a few blanks into my ammo!

    Here is my ugly first attempt. Weak hand only really sucks, 2 are off the paper low left and one is way right. upload_2017-10-13_13-27-50.jpeg

    That's way better than the first time I ran it! Not bad at all, sir. The support hand portion is a real beast.

    Moved the target out to 4 yards and it is amazingly more difficult.

    Well here it is , it was rough to get a perfect score !
    I did the drill on the last target differently tied both hands behind my back and ran in circles blindfolded.
    Scared the crap out of the cows , Mrs Tac made me promise not to do it again while she was milking the SOBs .
