    Variant on Bill Drill

    Tried this yesterday after reading from Eve Flanigan’s nice cover on it. Thought about how to make 25 or 50 rounds into good training. I’m still developing in so many needed skills so anything I can improve is a +1 for my range time.

    This one worked out well, probably ‘cause it starts at 5yds. Still, my first pass, shooting at 4”X11” at increasing speeds for each of 3 mags (6rds ea) showed room for improvement. Second pass I shot at the 6”X6” top, same speed but paying better attention to support hand grip and to trigger management. Big difference, all shots grouped center in 4” circle. More work needed and hopeful development to 7, 10, and 15 yds at least.

    Although my competition rig is a stock G17, I used one of my EDC rigs, a G19. Small enough to carry, big enough to handle easily.

    I posted before due diligence.

    Jeff Cooper's quote about "He who focuses on the front sight-something-something" can't find it right now, falls in line with the "Bill Drill".
    I focus on the front sight during the break, then lose sight during muzzle flip. The "Bill Drill" says to continue to focus on the front sight during muzzle flip so you do not loose acquisition time.

    Got it.
