Shoot Better with More Training

Use your bullets with training in mind. A friend of mine states, “Each round must have a training value with it. So, don’t think about shooting a tight, 25-yard group of targets. Do some serious training.  If you have 50 rounds, this is a good way to use them to make sure you get the training you need from every round you fire.

Two-handed grip, from the holster at five yards: If you can draw from your holster at your range, get in shooting position, draw and fire one round as fast as you can accurately hit the target. Do it again ten times. If you aren’t allowed to draw from the holster, put your pistol on the shooting table and do the drill by picking up the pistol, getting into the correct two-handed grip, finding the target and firing the shot.

One-handed grip, from the holster at five yards: Just like above, but shot with only one hand. Do it ten times.

Transition to one-handed grip, your other strong hand: Draw from the holster or pick up the pistol with your dominant hand. Change to your other hand and shot two rounds as fast as you can accurately hit the target. Repeat your movements, shooting 3 rounds. Do this twice.

Drive the gun, fire at extension: From what is typically known as the “high ready,” have the gun in a two-handed grip with your elbows placed at your ribs. Come to full height and shoot at the target as quick as you can, correctly hitting the target. Shoot two rounds. Then fire 3 rounds. Repeat 4 times.

You should have used a whole box of ammo, 50 rounds, with these simple drills that will improve your gun-fighting skills. If you are looking to hit your target better, start with these now.
