Who has the best Drills? Lets hear em
 
I like to practice different things when I go to the range like walking and shooting, shooting from cover, switching from rifle to sidearm ( like if you were to run out of ammo).

If an emergency ever arises I doubt you will be squared to your target with the perfect stance and in optimum lighting.

So lets hear some ideas of different things we can do at the range to mix it up a little whether it be a different drill, target ideas, makeshift cover pieces or whatever ideas you have.

I like to switch shooting hands and practice shooting one handed. I have one eye that is far superior to the other due to genes. I have to get comfy shooting with my weak hand and weak eye. :)

My favorite drill is a cordless Makita. But DeWalt or Milwaukee are good too.

Point shooting, point shooting, point shooting, point shooting, point shooting!

90% + effective first shots from a CCW condition will occur prior to you getting your gun in a sight shot position. Most will happen before you can see your gun! If you carry and don't practice this form of shooting you will die!

The likelihood is you will be fending off a knife or gun attack with your weak side arm while blowing the dirtbag's heart out with your gun mere inches from your holster. If you canít control your CCW weapon with one hand, DONíT CARRY!

Sorry guys, but that's the raw truth! As a matter of fact my criteria is to get my double tap into center mass before my weak side hand comes to the gun. When a sight picture is observed, the third shot is to the head. This drill or one similar to it was dubbed the "Mozambique Drill" by Jeff Cooper. It is referred to as a Failure Drill (as in "failure to stop . . ."), or triple tap and originated in Africa in the 1950's-60's when inferior revolvers were a problem.

As anyone that has tried it will tell you, it's a very difficult drill to pull off. Ask Asmel, I showed him this shooting style while we were at the range and I'm sure he will vouch for it's difficulty. And keep in mind, the realistic condition would be with with the target falling from the first two hits, not a hanging paper target.

If you carry, please practice this drill. The simple roll of the dice says you will more than likely need this skill!

I use several different drills to keep up with things, hopefully. One I like is some what like Cane's, I stand about 3 yards from my target, hands in a low ready positions, On sound of buzzer as if I was attached with out notice I do a palm strike with my support hand, as I palm strike I am drawing, I take a step to the side and rear and deliver 2 rounds to the body, I then get a sigh and deliver 2 rounds to the head. If 1 round is good why not 2. I will do this as I move left, right and back. I also like to do brace contact shooting, but I don't do a lot of that because it hurts my hand. I like the up close and personal fast stuff when I am gun fighting.

Usually when I take my Para P14 (my carry gun) out to practice, weather it be alone, with a partner or one of my advanced students, I take a minimum of 500 rounds for me. I will warm up with some basics, then some IPSC speed drills, then I will set-up several different IDPA stages of fire. I also change things up with my own stages of fire which will include shooting from vehicle, shooting from a sleeping position, as if at home, house clearing, etc. I use cover, doors, windows, barrels and baracades in most of my drills. If I have a shooting partner or student with me, we also practice combat accuracy drills, which is usually during warm-up. We will also practice weapon retention and disarming tecniques at the end of the session. I will usually start about 7:00 am and finish-up around 3:00pm. I usually do this once a month along with some fun shooting on some other weekends. Anyone in my neck of the woods is welcome to join in...........................

I've got an 18v DeWalt. It's by far the best drill that I've ever run.

I also have a big, heavy duty Milwaukee corded drill for the big projects.

:D

Big + 1 on this drill and it is the truth he speaks. Most times you will have to defend your self against an attacker in this similar scenario. It is my favorite drill, along with move, draw, and shoot. I have an advantage of being ambidextrous, so I use both eyes on target and try not to favor a dominate eye at longer range.

Otherwise, Cordless Makita drill.

I wouldn't buy the Ridged drills from Home Depot. they are an over priced version of Ryobi drills. made by the same company and everything.
