Dot Torture

I thought I would try to bring some structure to my shooting. A simple principle, but if you don't measure something, you won't know if you are improving.

I ran the Dot Torture drill three times today at Coal Creek Armory. The drill involves shooting small dots at relatively close range. It was hard to judge the distance, but I think I was at about 4 yards. The instructions include slow shooting, drawing and shooting, doubles, off-hand, strong hand, reloads, etc. for a total of 50 rounds/points. The rules at CCA prohibit drawing and firing, so I just pressed out from a low ready. I ran a 18, 17, and 22 using my CZ 75 SP-01 and Federal 9mm 115 grain FMJ RN ammunition.

I learned that I am horrible with my off-hand. I was 0 for 15. I have a baseline and hope I can go back soon to repeat the exercise. I may want to move in to 3 yards until I get more proficient.
