What have you found to be the best live fire drill for knocking the rust off from winter?

Dots.


Dots and distance change-up have become my go-to drills for when I arrive at the range. Shooting the latter clean in under 3 s is a nice challenge with minimal set-up.

The drill I started doing last season is a 12"x16" plate at 50 yards, another 12"x16" at 25 yards, and a metric at 10 yards. Alternating which target you start with 1 on steel 2 on paper, clean all three then reload and repeat reverse order. I plan on adding SHO and WHO to this also. Maybe some on the move shooting too. I forgot to add that I change up the translations any where from 10 to 80 degrees.

I usually begin and end live and dry fire with a FAST drill. My favorite drill would be accelerator.

The first thing that goes for me after a layoff is trigger control, so I like shooting groups and dots.

The second area is learning the cadence and rythym of recoil control, so I like to isolate grip and sight tracking with 2@25 and bill drills at distance.

So distance is the big factor after a layoff. 25y is going to show your deficiencies and provide the diagnostic data you need better than railing at close targets.

What is this 'season' thing that you speak of?

Seriously, this state bums me out with winter.

Foot of snow and it's 4 degrees out. Totally a waste of time and ammo to try and do anything beyond crono & function test.

If I didn't have just about the best job on earth for me, I'd pack my bags and move to a state with year round action.
