(safety notice: as with any drill involving transfer from one hand to the other, please remember to be careful. If you should drop the gun during the drill, let it fall to the ground and do not try to catch it in midair. If you try to catch it, the odds are very good that you’ll snatch the trigger and discharge the gun accidentally)

Set your shot timer to a PAR time of 10 seconds. On the buzzer, draw and engage the target as follows:

  1. fire 4 shots freestyle (both hands)
  2. transition gun to strong hand only
  3. fire 3 shots strong hand only
  4. transition gun to weak hand only
  5. fire 3 shots weak hand only

If the drill is too hard or too easy, you can adjust the size of the scoring zone, the distance, and/or the time limit. But the “official” version is 10 shots in 10 seconds at 10 yards.
