Want a drill that can improve your first shot accuracy?
When it comes to getting a gun out of a holster and putting hits on target in a hurry, many of us lack the preparation or competency of preparation and don't know how to get better except to "practice more". In this episode of Tactical Tuesday, Anthony Lambert from ACT Gun Training joins the USCCA in practicing the Line Drill which helps shooters benefit from getting consistent with their draw and placing their first shot on target very quickly.
In this drill, we want to work on consistency. Slow is smooth, smooth is fast. On the command of the timer, draw and fire one shot onto the 1inch target. If you shoot outside of the black line, then what you need to do is adjust your stance a little to make sure you consistently hit the target, keeping your eyes on the front site. Continue to run through this drill until you feel comfortable and you are consistent with your shot placements on that 1inch wide target.
Want to learn about this training technique and many others? Call us, sign up for a class or schedule a training session on the range. We look forward to hearing from you!

In this weeks Tactical Tuesday video Steve hands off the reigns to one of our top trainers, Beth Alcazar. Beth takes us through the "Get off the X" drill going through it in both directions. This is a great firearms training drill for someone who is looking to add movement to their training. One of the training elements that needs to be stressed is that we need to move when drawing and firing. You don't want to be standing static with rounds coming in. At the end Beth give some more suggestions you can try to add even more stress to this drill and increase your training.

Anthony and Mike both demonstrate this drill starting with two magazines: one with one round, and the other that is topped off. First, start with the magazine that has one round in it. On the beeper, shoot one round, reload, and shoot another round. The status of this is that you have one round in the chamber, and after one round it will go back to slide lock, and you will have to reload again. Doing this repetitively in an efficient manner will train your reloading technique.
This drill is an incapacitated drill in which the shooter will have to shoot as if his dominant arm is injured and unusable.
To complete this drill, start with two rounds in your firearm. Simulating an injury, using just your non-dominant hand, fire two rounds into the target.
In a high-stress situation, you never know if you'll be injured. The benefit of this drill is that you can practice and prepare for such an event if it's ever required.
It's a natural reaction to anticipate the round going down the range, but it leads to several bad habits like flinching, squeezing, and slapping. With practice, these habits can be corrected.
To work on controlling your impulses, get a partner to load your firearm with a mix of live and dummy rounds. The goal here is to not know when you'll fire a dummy round, so you can really see how much you flinch or react. Focus on a steady grip and avoid overthinking the shot.
On this week's video of Tactical Tuesday, Steve and Mike will demonstrate the Mozambique Drill. This drill trains for you to stop the threat by placing two rounds to the cardiovascular triangle and one to the ocular cavity, otherwise known as two to the body and one to the head. Remember to train hard, safe and always.
