    Dot 2: Draw and fire 1 shot, holster and repeat x 4, total 5 rounds.

    Dots 3 and 4: Draw and fire 1 shot on #3, then 1 shot on #4, holster and repeat x 3, total 8 rounds.

    Dot 5: Draw and fire string of 5 rounds, strong hand only, total 5 rounds.

    Dots 6 and 7: Draw and fire 2 shots on #6, then 2 on #7, holster, repeat x 4, total 16 rounds.

    Dot 8: From ready, fire five shots, weak hand only, total 5 rounds.

    Dots 9 and 10: Draw and fire 1 shot on #9, speed reload, fire 1 shot on #10, repeat x 3, total 6 rounds.

    Total your hits to determine your final score.

    S&W 442 from a safariland 25 pocket holster
    3 yards
    46/50

    Of the 4 misses 1 was a bonehead pull on the draw of dot #2, 1 on the doubles from dot #6, 1 on the draw from dot #9, and on dot #3 i couldn't identify a fourth hit or a clear double so I'm taking a miss there as well. I generally suck at sho/who but find a snub easier to handle here. The gun is small and locked into my hand and the da pull isn't as vulnerable to anticipation and snatching like my other guns, for me.

    Glock 19 in Kramer belt scabbard (no concealment)

    3 yards

    46/50 - fail but pretty good for me. Just felt a little shaky and snatched at a couple of the shots. On the up side, shooting the 5-yard Roundup (with my LCR) and Snubby Super Test lately has really helped my SHO/WHO shooting.

    S&W 43c from low ready. I just got it today and haven't decided on a holster yet. I have several to try.
    3 yards.
    50/50.
    This is a really fun gun to shoot.

    Sig 229R from Safariland ALS/ALS GUARD duty rig
    4yds
    48/50
    Dropped one on 7 and one on 8. Rushed them both.
    FAIL

    Noticed: Need to shoot my duty gun more. I just really hate shooting Sigs compared to my CZ.

    For the guys shooting revolvers, how are you navigating the final two dots? Are you doing the reload? Using speed loaders?

    With my 43c I just laid the rounds on a blue barrel beside me. Loaded 1, fired, then loaded 1 loose round for the second shot.

    When Iíve done it with a .38, I used a speed strip from my pocket like I carry .38 reloads normally.

    Should shoot this again with my 642.

    Mine is strictly a lounge/bug gun so i don't plan to reload it much, and i don't have speedstrips or speedloaders for it yet anyway, so i just loaded from a cargo pocket with loose rounds

    Dot Torture tells me, loud and clear, that I suck with my weak hand.

    I should do some left hand only range sessions....
