Live Fire

My notes on Live Fire practice suggested by Mr Snuffaluffagus, Steve Koski

Listen to E98 and all will become clear.

If shot breaks when you see the sights are off - take another shot!


•5x Shoot slow-fire bulls eye @12 yards
 Strong Hand only
 Weak Hand only

•Draw & 2x Fire from Retention

•1x IDPA target @7 yards
 Draw & Fire one shot
 Draw & Fire two shots

•Practice more on what you suck at

•1 round in gun, 1 in 2x mags
 Draw & Fire, Emergency Reload
 Fire, Emergency Reload, Fire

•Same w/ all magazines full
 Draw & Fire, Tactical Reload
 Fire, Tactical Reload, Fire

•1x IDPA target @15 yards
 Repeat, but slower
 Draw & Fire, Tactical Reload
 Fire, Tactical Reload, Fire

•1x IDPA target @25 yards
 Repeat, but even slower
 Draw & Fire, Tactical Reload
 Fire, Tactical Reload, Fire

•Try Prone Shooting w/ Magazine Base on Ground

•2x IDPA targets @7 yards

•Draw - from concealment & fire two shots on each target
 Two-hand
 More Strong Hand only
 More Strong & transfer to weak hand only

•More Weak Hand only w/ finger off trigger (gun drawn and held in weak hand)

•2x IDPA target @7 yards
 4 rounds in gun - 2 on each target
 Emergency Reload, 1 in each head

•Repeat, but while moving to Left

•Repeat, but while moving to Right

•Repeat, but while advancing

Slow is smooth. Smooth is fast.
