What is the Course of Fire or Drill that you practice the most?
 
What is the Course of Fire or Drill that you practice most? And why?

I vary my practice sessions. I have some old courses of fire we used when I was active in IPSC, and Bullseyes sessions. I keep track of my scores and times. IMO, when you practice the same thing, you become proficient in that practice. When you vary (and keep the results), you become more proficient overall.
The problem that arises is that some will "cheat" and not record a bad session. I try to analyze what went wrong, and try to fix it for the next time (and make notes for future reference).

Normally when I practice I always try to have fun, although, I'll be shooting a Bullseye league come September so I'm been practicing with the Mark II, strong hand, at 25 yards. This practice is very humbling and I'm not having much fun. I rather be shooting centers out of targets at 7 yards with the 45.

I don't think I do enough one-handed and weak-hand shooting.

If you have a firearm that can be "dry-fired", you may not need a range for one-handed or non-dominant hand practice.
You can do that in an interior space. Triple check that the firearm is unloaded.
Get in position and take aim at different things in the room. Practice the basics.

Triple check that the firearm is unloaded, again.

Watch your front sight and pull the trigger.
As you practice, you will find that muscle memory will develop.

You're right. I tend to forget about that.

Snap Caps also make travel to the range un-neccessary.
My practice consists of Body armor drills at 7 and 10 yards, and face to target push off, start walking backwards, draw & shoot as weapon is coming up to sight plane, raise to sight plane walking backward away from target amd empty mag, reload.
Fun to do. :)

OK you can laugh..

It varies from trip to trip. Sometimes it's all dedicated to what's going on with my grip. Other times it's closing the right partition and working on weak-handed shots from cover (Don't belong to an outdoor range/club, so it's all I have available). 200 rounds in a Weaver stance at 12' just doesn't trip my trigger. One that I do when the range is fairly empty is to start out standing, shoot, crouch, shoot, kneel shoot, slide right, etc until I'm standing on the other side of my lane. Do it strong-handed, two-handed, and weak-handed.

I mix it up each time but my go-to training is the Mozambique Drill.

When I can get to a range that allows it, I practice draw-doubletap-two or three targets. I try to set it up that I will have a hot reload every two or three strings of fire. I get practice at several different parts of combat shooting in very little time.

When I was teaching myself to master the DA/SA trigger transition on my 4506. This kind of drill once a week, 50 rounds/week and I was pretty darn good at it in a month. 4 boxes of ammo is all it took.
