To set up the drill, place three targets side by side at even intervals 5 yards in front of the firing line. The shooter starts with the rifle butt on his shoulder and the muzzle down, with his weight forward on the balls of the feet, his head and eyes up and looking at the first target.

Splits between the targets should not vary from the splits between shots by more than a few hundredths of a second. Only centre hits count. Any shots outside of the”C” zone on an IPSC or the -1 zone of an IDPA target are not included in your score. As you become better at this drill, tighten up the scoring requirements to the “A” zone on a USPSA target and the -0 zone on an IDPA target. Remember, the goals are accuracy and speed, in that order.

At the buzzer, engage each target in order, with two shots each. Right to left or left to right is the shooter’s choice, but most right-handed shooters will be faster going left to right. Most people who have some shooting experience will shoot the drill in about 2.0 to 2.5 seconds the first time through. With practice, 1.5 seconds is a viable goal. When you can keep all the shots on the “A” zone of a IPSC target and do it in 1.5 seconds or less, you have mastered this drill. There is always room for improvement, however. Watch Kyle Lamb do it in 1.26 seconds at www.vikingtactics.com. Learn to beat that time, and then you can strut.
