    Old Finnish civil guard drill. Valid even today.

    I recently shot old Finnish civil guard shooting drill with 7,65 Parabellum or Luger pistol. Drill is shot at 25 meters in 20 seconds. 8 rounds and pass is 7 hits in syöksyjä or attacker figure target. Strong hand shooting only. I used IPSC/USPSA torso target because old targets are not available anymore. I plan to shoot this drill with modern pistol too and see if there is any difference in performance. Should be easier tho but you never know.

    Old is good, too...

    Love these old drills.
    Low round count like this, might have to give it a shot-pun intended.
    Thanks for going to the effort and posting

    Any idea what the original target was?

    Target was quite large silhouette style target. 25" wide and 60" tall. For some reason I can't add photo to this thread. You can search" finnish army target gunboards" and find picture of target.
