Shooting Drills to Improve Accuracy

Training aids

Besides offering a wide range of firearms courses, CONTACT FRONT also offers some firearm drills and training aids to improve your accuracy, amongst other things.

Below you can find an overview of some drills that will train certain aspects of firearm fundamentals. Feel free to try them out, even if its only for fun or to do something else like precision fire at 25m. Not that this is a bad thing ;-)

We strongly recommend to use a shottimer during your trainingsessions. There are a lot of options available but we sell the PACT Club III timer.

ROLLERCOASTER DRILL

An interesting drill to end a training session. This drill combines fast sight alignment, accuracy and magazine reloads. The recommended distance is 3 meters but can be further depending on the desired level of difficulty. 
Draw from the holster and start with a nr 2 circle and fire the indicated number of rounds in the respective circle. Then you choose in which direction you want to go by following the line. At "3 + Reload" you fire the 3 shots first and then perform a magazine change. A number 1 circle only needs 1 round to be fired. In total you fire 18 rounds within a target time of 35 seconds with all hits.

Cold Drill

Use this drill at the start and end of a workout. Start on the 5m, gun holstered, arms at your sides.
Pistol is loaded and ready with a magazine of 10 rounds. Have one spare magazine with minimum 3 rounds.
Draw and fire 5 shots at each circle, perform a speed slide lock reload and fire 3 rounds at the center circle. All hits must be inside the circles.

Pass: 15 sec or less
Good: 12 sec or less
Excellent: 9 sec or less

This drill consists of two main manipulations, namely drawing fast and speed reloading. Shooting the 2x5 circles as fast as you can, will give you a good indication of grip and recoil management. The drill also tests your mental clock during the transition from one of the big circles (speed) to the small circle (slowing down for precision).
