I treat standards as a personal benchmark, that is all. I keep track of conditions ( gear/weather/etc) as well as scores and I don’t do them often.

Have not done it myself yet, but come spring where I have access to an open outdoor range, I plan to. Hackathorn Standards Course Designer: Joined Feb 12, Messages 8 Location Midwest. Sounds like a decent hwckathorn of fire. Are you giving a penalty if they go over the time limit?
Or just assume they will stop firing when the buzzer sounds after the alotted time. WillBrink Guest Feb 22, We ran this same kind of drill and had to stop shooting at the buzzer.
Best I ever did was I think. I remember because I always wanted to get over and never did! But that was over 12 years ago. I have my scores somewhere! It was very nerve racking!!!! Got the blood flowing for sure!
Plus the normal 3 gun combat shoots. But we did the above mentioned drill or one very close to it as often as we could. This will improve your skills in the longer range shooting. Uackathorn stronger your muscles are The shooting specific muscles required for shooting the smaller the groups. Smaller Groups equal better range, although sticking to one weapon and caliber and shooting at greater ranges is the best practice.
Sttandards make sure it is not fruitless practice. This is all about fine motor skills along with big muscle memory!!! Load several mags and put a snap cap randomly thru the multiple mags.
Then mix them up.
If you are anticipating the shot then when you land and fire on a snap cap during live fire you will see the front site jump! This is very common even for expert shooters. Just figuring out if you are doing this almost corrects itself. But you gotta see it for yourself to believe it. I have seen some real studs call BS on this drill. But then I have slipped a snap cap in their mag when they aren’t looking and the reaction is like I can’t believe it jumped!

Makes a hackafhorn out of anyone!!! If you are anticipating your shot then your 25m scores will go way down. It is funny to do this to someone unaware and watch their reaction!!! But it shows the most common flaw for shooters in vivid detail!

What keeps me from going up a level in IDPA is the distance stuff at 25 yards. WillBrink Guest Feb 23, Use some dummy rounds mixed in with your live hackzthorn, if you see anticipation when you hit a dummy.
Pressure on the trigger with out moving the sights. Maintain pressure on the trigger and following through with the shot.
Reset the trigger and repeat. Stop and hammer cock and dryfire until you get 5 consecutive dry shots with no movement.
Then eject the dummy and go continue to fire. Dryfire times a day, do it against a wall white and make sure you have zero movement in your sights. If you find movement adjust your trigger finger or grip until the movement is gone. Start your range day with two strings of slow fire at 25 yards 10 rounds in 10 minutes take your time on each shot and practice calling your shot. Use the clock method low at 7 o clock the drill helps you focus on where your sights are and what your sights do as you break the shot.
After you fire your normal range stuff, fire two more slow fire strings. This will show you how bad your fundamentals get when you are firing all the rapid fire and point shoot stuff. Focus on the basic fundamentals, put all the other bullshit out of your mind and do a mental check of your fundamentals prior to shooting the course of fire.
Sight aligned on the target area. And the best thing you can do, is maintain a positive attitude and thoughts on shooting out side of your comfort zone. Never focus on the bad shots and what you did wrong, focus on every good shot and what you did to achieve that good shot… Buy a 22 caliber conversion kit and practice sights and trigger at 25 to 50 yards.
