RECOILtv Training Tuneups: Around the Word Pistol Drill

In this installment of Training Tuneups, Dan Brokos of Lead Faucet Tactical takes us through the Around the World pistol drill. This drill is a good test of both speed and trigger manipulation. No matter what discipline of shooting you are involved in, it is important to remember that you’re your skills are perishable.

When it comes to shooting pistols, speed and precision are the ultimate goals for any accomplished shooter. Whether on the range, in military or LE scenarios, or even in competition shooting, quick, precise shots are required for success. Instead of standing 10 yards from a paper target and shooting groups all day, shooters can enhance their range time and test their abilities by running drills. Shooting drills are designed to help us keep our skills and fundamentals sharp so that when we need to apply them, even in sudden or uncomfortable situations, we can do so effectively.

In order to perform this drill, you will need a paper target that has 12 distinct circles or other points of aim. When the timer begins, you will place two shots each into all twelve of the circles or points of aim with two goals in mind. First, you must complete this drill as quickly as possible. Secondly, you must not place any shots outside of the circle. For each shot placed outside of the intended area, one second will be added to your overall time.

Can you beat Dan's time of 11:76 and award yourself the coveted Learjet home, or will you be hitching a ride on a hot air balloon? The next time you head to the range, give this drill a try and see how your pistol skills stack up. For more ways to enhance your firearms training, check out RECOILTV.
