The 4567 was inspired by Gila Hayes’s “5×4” drill and the various iterations thereof.

The drill is run four times, five rounds each, on a six inch circle, at seven yards. A shot timer is used to begin each string of fire. The four strings of fire are:

  1. draw and fire 5 rounds from concealment, two-handed
  2. draw and fire 5 rounds from concealment, strong hand only
  3. from the ready position fire 5 rounds, weak hand only
  4. draw and fire 5 rounds from concealment, two-handed (repeat of string 1)

For any shot outside of the 6″ circle, add 1 second to your time. Total the times (and penalties) for all four strings to determine your overall score:

  • Basic score total time with penalties is 4+5+6+7 = 22 seconds
  • Intermediate is 5+6+7 seconds = 18 seconds
  • Advanced is 6+7 = 13 seconds

This drill is also compatible with the Q-PT target using the inner (white outline) center of mass circle.
