3×5 Card Drill

Range: 3yd, 5yd, 7yd, 10yd, & 15yd
Target: 3×5 card
Start position: any
Rounds fired: 6 at each distance

Shooter fires six rounds at the target at his own pace for maximum accuracy. For traditional double action guns, three shots should be double action and three shots should be single action in alternating sequence (double, single, double, single, double, single).

At three yards, the goal is to have all six bullet holes touching. After that, all shots need to hit the card. If all six shots hit the card, increase to the next distance.

For added challenge, use three cards and perform the drill freestyle, strong-hand only, and weak-hand only at each distance.
