    Week 286: Hackathorn 3-Second Head Shot Standards

    Week 286: Hackathorn 3-Second Head Shot Standards

    Results may be posted until October 13th, 2018.

    Designed by: Ken Hackathorn
    Range: 5 yards
    Target: Three USPSA Metric or IDPA targets
    Start Position: Ready or holstered, see below
    Rounds Fired: 9

    Targets are placed at least two feet apart shoulder to shoulder at a range of five yards. Par time is set to three seconds for each string. There are three strings of fire.

    1. Fire exactly one shot at the head of each target, going from left to right.
    2. Fire exactly one shot at the head of each target, going from right to left.
    3. Fire exactly one shot at the head of each target, starting with the middle target, then the left and right targets in any order.

    A round anywhere in the whole head (A/B zones) counts as a hit. Shots fired after the three-second par time count as misses. In total, you'll fire exactly nine rounds. Seven points or better, out of the nine possible, is a passing score.

    Start position is shooter's choice of ready, holstered, or holstered and concealed. If you want to make it harder than that, try is SHO or WHO, lower the par time, or increase the distance. It's a short and quick drill - feel free to shoot it multiple times and/or increase the difficulty as you progress!

    Please report the following when you post your results in this thread:

    Equipment used (pistol, holster, optional concealment garment if one was used)
    Start position (ready, holstered, concealed)
    Any variation you included (increased distance, SHO, par time, etc.)
    Total number of points out of the possible nine
    Anything you noticed

    Just shot this a few month ago with the 9mm Operator. Will mix it up soon for this DoW.

    Score - 7/9

    I got all hits but had one ot shot on the final string and one ot on the second string due to poor ammo management which required a reload after shot 2. Rookie mistake.

    G43 day. Shot from under a open rain jacket using an OWB G17 holster.

    I guess I had the targets a little to close to each other.

    SHO I was over time on every run, 3.02, 3.03, and 3.30. Got 8 hits and one that nicked the top of the cardboard but didn't cut the perforation line. Shooting the sights vs chasing the time is an accomplishment for me.

    Freestyle and I got the hits under the 3 sec par.
