    Week 341: Sweet Sixteen

    Week 341: Sweet Sixteen

    Results may be posted until November 4th, 2019.

    Designed by: Todd Louis Green
    Range: varies
    Target: 3x5 card
    Start position: ready; standing unsupported
    Rounds fired: 16

    This is a variation of a classic walkback drill.

    You get exactly sixteen rounds. You can begin with the target at any distance you choose.

    Fire one round at the target. If you hit, add one yard and repeat. If you miss, stay at the same distance and repeat.

    Your score is the farthest target that you successfully hit.

    If you miss three times at the same distance, the drill ends even if you still have ammunition remaining. E.g., if you miss your first shot at the 7yd line, then miss your second attempt at the 7yd line, and miss your third attempt at the 7yd line the drill is over even if you have only fired three rounds and scored no hits. This prevents someone from beginning at the 50yd line and hoping for one hit out of 16 shots.

    If you don't miss, you'll end up 15yd farther than your first shot. E.g., if you start at the 5yd line and get all your hits, your last shot will be at the 20yd line.

    For added adventure, you can repeat the drill SHO and WHO.

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

    I started at 3 yards (I know my limits!)
    My score is 16, that was the furthest back I hit.

    Did great, one yard at a time.

    At yard 8, almost missed:

    At 16 yards, missed first shot, hit on second shot. Had one round left, moved back to 17, and missed with that last round. There it is, just above my ejection port:

    So, 16 it is.

    I used generic Tulammo steel case 115 gr FMJ, surprisingly accurate in that 4.5 inch barrel.

    ETA: kindly disregard the .223 diameter holes in the lower A zone, those were put there by my wife the day before. Hell yes, she's deadly.

    I crapped out with 3 misses at 16 yards before I shot all 16 rounds. So I shot the remaining 6 rounds after recording the score, from the 16 yard line and went 5/6. This is on the low end of what i can do with this drill(not a large envelope though as my range log shows 14 as a low and 19 as a high), in fact I made it to 16 shooting a doubles version the last time I had the p09 out. While the trigger on this gun has a nasty hitch in the DA and the dawsons shoot behind the dot vs top edge, both of those things are easily overcome and it was simply me pulling shots. Everything was shot DA. I like to shoot these on two cards, 8 shots each to better track hits etc...

    The trigger on my 442 is smooth and it hits the "power crease" perfectly. That combined with the tight sight picture makes this gun shoot pretty well for me during slow fire precision. I wish I would have shot this well with it during the iwr postal match! Still dig this thing and it is my constant companion around the house or when I don't/won't wear a bigger gun. Also ran this on two cards, first half on the left and final on the right.

    Shot this again today in Pinehurst with my son.
    I shot my RTF2 G19 and made it to 25 yards. He used his black 43X and hit til 40 yards where we ran out of space.

    This was a fun one. Grabbed photos (or so I thought), but it turned out that only two (2!) pictures saved to my phone from my entire range trip. It's time for an upgrade.

    Ran 3 to 18 without any mikes (17 and 18 cut the edge of the card, half-on/half-off) with an old Commander shooting 124gr American Eagle.

    This drill was very valuable. I need a taller front sight. This particular pistol was cut for modern sights (Warren U-Notch rear, .180 height Dawson Tritium front) but it still shoots a grandpa-style 6-o'clock hold on 25 yard B8s. Guessing the hold-under got a little... precarious. But, it wasn't as bad as I though. At 18, I had the index card a little less than an index card's height off the front sight. 10 yards and in is basically a drive-the-dot sight picture.

    Going yard by yard did a lot for helping me get comfortable with this pistol.
