I shoot the El Pres in real life, cold, with production gear, in 6.0 seconds and all alpha pretty much at will. I can drop to 5.50 range and drop 2-3 C hits. In real life my turn and draw is 1.25 normally on this drill and my reload is 1.35. So comfortable splits and transitions in the 0.25-0.29 range.
But when I've been doing the drill in the Dry Fire for Practical Pistol Shooters for El Pres I can't make the par time of 3.50 seconds. At all, and especially if I'm not reasonably sure of an A hit doing the drill.
I'm using 1/2 scale targets and at the appropriate distance to simulate 10 yards. I'm hearing the timer beep as I'm coming onto or firing the first shot on the middle target after the reload. So I'm behind the curve 3 to 4 shots and a transition.
Is anyone else having a hard time meeting this par time in dry fire? Like most people working El Pres I focus on whipping my head around to the first target asap and doing a quick and clean reload.
I could make this par time only if I just did the mechanical motions and didn't aim or see my sights at all.
