Improve your shooting skills!

Drill of the Week

Since we worked on transitions in depth shooting from near to far and from far to near, we will bring it all together in one drill this week.

Accelerator requires transitioning to targets near and far. The size and distance of the targets will also dictate the type of focus needed as discussed in our previous drill. Accelerator can fool you with the large targets. It is easy to get carried away shooting this drill faster than you are capable of when your attention is not where it should be.

This is one of those things that are very subjective and your skill level can really drive what works best for you. As you improve, you might discover another order works better since you have acquired new skills or improved old ones. We prefer to lean towards 5, 4, 2, 1, 3. Even though the large target is 20 yards way it's still large enough to get a fast shot off. Sometimes it is possible to hit it in less than 1 second.

The closer large target is only 15 seconds faster if you draw to it. By drawing to target 5 you can still get of a quick 1st shot and easily transition to a sharp sight focus for target 4. After that you can drive quickly to target 2 using a target focus, and back of just enough to finish target 1 and 3. We recommend you to accelerate your shooting speed as you transition to the closer targets.
