99 Drill

designed by JodyH

Range: 7-15yd

Target: 4×6 card (advanced: 3×5 card)

Start position: holstered concealed, hands relaxed at sides

Rounds fired: 99

This was developed as a way to practice fundamentals (marksmanship at speed, draws, and reloads) with limited time and ammunition. Individual drills are shot multiple times to provide actual training benefit rather than just serving as a test of current skill level.

  1. 7 yards, 2.5sec PAR: draw and shoot three (10 times, total 30 rounds)
  2. 7 yards, 5.0sec PAR: draw, fire one, reload, fire two (10 times, total 30 rounds)
  3. 10 yards, 3.5sec PAR: draw and shoot three (10 times, total 30 rounds)
  4. 15 yards, 5.0sec PAR: draw and shoot three (3 times, total 9 rounds)

Either 4×6″ or 3×5″ cards can be used as targets. The 3×5 version is obviously significantly more difficult. All shots must be fired before the end of the PAR time; shots fired after the PAR count as misses.
