    Most of my points were dropped at the 25 along with a couple of called fliers at the 15. (one 7, one 8) All times were a fair amount under par. I would really love to get where I could shoot this all in the black, which obviously means more work at the 25.

    I shot this twice today wearing full raid gear: duty belt, body armor, and helmet. I shot from the low ready as described by Wayne Dobbs. I was using a G19-5 with Ameriglo Bold sights.

    The first attempt I did it as my first shooting of the day. Things went poorly. I missed the B8 4/6 times at 25y (all slightly low and left of the 8.5x11 paper). I also missed the paper once completely at 15y. Then I missed both head shots at the 10y line and one at the 7y line. Final score was 243/360.

    I tried again at the end of my range session and did much better after being warmed up. I still missed the B8 completely once at 25y and still missed a head shot at 10y but the final score was 304/360.

    As usual, I was awful at making the best use of the available time. I shot each 25y string under 3s and almost every 15y string under 2s. I have a difficult time gauging time when Im shooting and Im always worried that I will take too long so I rush.

    Historically, I've had the same issue. I just have to focus hard on doing what is necessary with shooting for the hits rather than the time and being ok with having a hit over time as opposed to a miss under par. While it's rather obvious while talking about it, I find that in practice we all want to hit the par regardless and it took a mental switch to actually apply it. And I have to remind myself throughout the drill/practice session when I start to slip toward a bad rep chasing times etc...

    That being said, it's still something I struggle with and easily find myself slipping back if I don't monitor myself mentally.
    That's why it's a good idea, if your gun has iron sights, that it's got a red dot so that if your iron sights fail... you've got some way to aim - BigT

    Tried this drill today, and I liked it. Shooting a Walther P99AS from low ready, first shot of each 2-3 shot string DA. I impressed the heck out of myself at 25, keeping 5 of 6 in the black and dropping one low into the 7 ring, well under par time. I actually did better at 25 than at 15, as I think I was rushing my shots a little more at 15. I screwed up when I moved up to 10 yards though, and shot 3 strings instead of 2 at both 10 and 7, so I compensated by doing only one each at 5 and 3 to maintain the proper overall round count. I ended up missing the 3x5 twice with a couple of low shots. I had three others that cut the bottom of the card with one that just just barely smudged the edge but I'm counting it . I managed to make par on every string. I did a quick tabulation of my "unofficial" score and ended up with 307 (85 percent), although my course of fire was a little bastardized so it doesn't really count. I was encouraged enough by my performance to want to keep working at it. I think 90 percent is a realistic goal for me with some more practice.

    This is an awesome qual. I shot it with my PX4CC from low ready and failed, but really liked the emphasis on failure drills and shooting cadence at different ranges.

    See photo for results (279) and to check my math. It took some hunting to find the 25th hole in the B-8.

    Two of the missed shots in the neckline area were the very first string at 25 - a distance where the CAP sights can be challenging for me, often throwing shots high. The rest of the misses were head shots I pulled low. I also subtracted 10 points each for overtime shots at 15 and 5.

    Overall, I need to work on marksmanship fundamentals for the longer ranges and faster transitions to accurate head shots at the middle distances.

    Finished the session shooting the Five Yard Roundup a couple of times. The second run was a 94 - probably a tie for my best ever - and this was with my .38 LCR. Happy to call it a night on that note.
