This drill is also shot from the 7-yard line with pistol and the 10-yard line with rifle. The pistol will start from the holster and the rifle from a low ready. Before the shot timer signal someone will give you 5 numbers from the target in random order – representing the 5 numbered boxes.
On the signal you will draw or snap up your weapon and engage each number called with one round. (Example: 1,2,3,4,5 or 3,3,4,4,5) The goal for the drill is a hit on each box as prompted, with an even cadence between shots – no misses. If you imagine someone listening to your shots with their back turned, they would hear no difference between any combination of shots.
Optimally, five shots to one box would sound the same as one shot to five separate boxes. Holding yourself to this standard forces you to both control your cadence when shooting to the same box/target and speed up your transition time between boxes/targets.
The most important training goal in the beginning is shooting an even cadence with no misses, even if this seems “slow”. Over time you will develop your ability to accurately shoot any combination of targets at the 1,2,3,4,5 (.27-31 sec.) pace. You will then be prepared to accurately engage an adversary while still maintaining the ability to react to changing conditions. Once you reach this standard, resist the temptation to shoot even faster.
