So how in the hell do you get a 1.8 sec par time on this drill?  When the timer goes off I'm usually in the middle of my reload.  Do I just suck?

 

1.2 to draw and fire 2

1 to reload

.2 sec split on last 2 shots

 

2.4 seems more reasonable.  2.2 if you smoke it.  How is 1.8 possible?

Practice. I can usually do 2.5ish cold, 2.3 then 2.1 with practice, and below 2.0 with a LOT of effort.

Your draw is too slow. A <= 1.0s reload is harder.

.7 draw, .1 split (no recoil), .9 reload, .1 split.

There's absolutely no reason your draw and split should be 1.2. You have tons of low hanging fruit right there

Hmmm yeah makes sense. The draw looks like the biggest impediment followed by a smooth reload that hopefully is sub 1 sec.

I think I got that 1.2 draw to first shot from one of Ben’s older books.

Thanks for the info. Back to dryfiring the basics.

My draw is probably the lowest hanging fruit and also why I'm not hitting the Bill drill par times in dry or live fire.

OK, I don't have that one....

 

.2 splits are real good in LIVE FIRE!  In live fire, for this drill, I think .17-19 is something to be proud of.  In DF, the split should be .10 or nothing.  

 

In live fire your draw and first shot should be .9 or less.  No reason live and DF should be too different here.  DF should probably be in the .8 range.  If your DF draw is 1.2 try to move faster or maybe you are trying to see too much sights.  

 

Reload.  Hats off to those that can do it in under 1 sec.  1.1-1.2 is very good after a couple months of DF.

 

4 Aces has both a draw and a reload.  Maybe you are trying to bite off too much at one time.  Maybe go back to the draw.... get that down to sub 1 second.  Then work on the reload.  Once you've masterred those individually, then try to put it all together.
