It goes without saying: Make sure that your dynamic range is safe and controlled and that you always follow Universal Firearms Safety Rules!
Then, a friend introduced me to Discretionary Command Target Training. It's a fun thing to do when you can have a controlled range that isn't a "flat range". Preferably with at least 270-degree safety zones...to implement your mechanics that you've been practicing into more realistic tactical training.
Here is a link to some cool targets for this type of training. I am not affiliated in any way.
Discretionary Shoot Command Drill
1. Face perpendicular (90 degrees to "right' or "left" (STILL IN A SAFE DIRECTION!) to the target.
2. Push shot timer with random delay on start beep.
3. Begin to walk perpendicular to target.
4. On shot timer beep, SAFELY, turn, square up, stance, grip, draw from holster.
5. Partner calls out a shape, color, or number.
6. Determine if there is a viable legitimate target based on command.
7. Fire until three clean hits.
8. Evaluate draw to first shot and splits.
1. Partner can require "math" and target transitions. For example, calling out 9 would require shots on 6+3, 5+4, or 5+2+2.
2. Partner can call a "no shoot" and shooter goes to low ready or SUL or does not draw. For example, call out "GREEN!" There is no green. That's a no shoot. Flagging the target on a "no shoot" call would be a "fail".
3. Can incorporate emergency reload drills. Have partner stack "unknown number" of rounds into mag and shooter needs "one more" clean hit after emergency reload.
4. Can incorporate malfunction clearing. Partner puts a "dummy" at random position in the mag stack. Shooter needs to get "one more" clean hit after clearing malfunction.
All designed to require pre-frontal thinking and decision making under tactical stress.
