The July winner of our Design a Drill of the Week contest is Pyramid, submitted by “mlazarus” who will be receiving a free pistol-training.com hat for his contribution to the site. It’s a quick, easy to set up drill which helps work on the all-important balance between speed & accuracy.
The Pyramid drill:
Target is a standard 8″ paper plate. At the five yard line draw and fire two rounds into the plate as fast as you can make the hits. Move back to the 10 yard line and repeat this. Again from the 15, 20 and 25 yard line. This can also be run in reverse, starting at the 25 yard line and moving closer.
The purpose of the drill is twofold. One, develop the same draw speed for targets at all ranges and two, develop a sense of the sighting needs and front sight focus from various distances.
