Thread: What Drill To Test New Handgun?

  1. #11
    Last summer, I used Mr_White’s school test to efficiently benchmark a number of different pistols.
    Likes pretty much everything in every caliber.

    My go to when I'm trying to assess my relative performance between guns is either the Tactical Professor's "Baseline Evaluation" drill or the Wilson/Seeklander 5x5.

    This is the best test Iíve found for that effort. I have to work hard to avoid over using it.

    Most pistols work well for me at 10 yards and in so my litmus test is something like the FBI modified bullseye on a B8 target.
    10 shots slowfire at 25 yards.
    two 5 shot strings from 15 yards in 15 seconds each string
    two 5 shot strings from 15 yards in 10 seconds each string

    In my experience anything I shoot well (for me) on that (in the 280+ range) will rock up close.
    As a man sows, so shall he reap.

    As I am mostly an all-metal or 1911 shooter....

    200-500 rounds to break in if new pistol (more or less depending on manufacturers recommendations). I shoot 50 @ 7, 10, 15 yds (indoors), 6x6in circles target to allow differentiation of groupings, establish POA/POI of pistol at different ranges.

    Once that is established, dot torture at 5 and 7 to see if the pistol is working for me in the hand, of if we are fighting. I haven't had one push back on me in a while, but it happens.

    If I plan to use for home defense or carry, I also run minimum of 500 malfunction free rounds (of anything other than squib or hang-fire unless its a light-strike), 100 of carry ammo to establish it runs (1911

    For me I use a few different drill's to help me "finalize" my carry pistol. I start with "Bill drill" for each, from holster, Then I do the "El Presidente", then I use Mr. Givens "Casino drill", I finish it up with the FBI qual, and rate the score. I figure between all the drill's I can measure, draw stroke/grip, reload ability, accuracy and trigger fit for me.
