This course of fire was originally developed by Chip McCormick and Ronin Coleman (who is the genius behind the PACT timer). It was handed down to me by Texas 3-gun guru Jim Griggs. I've used this drill a lot - it's a good set of exercises to build up your basic stand-and-shoot skills.

Set up three IPSC targets in an "El Presidente" configuration, side by side, about shoulder width apart. The leftmost target is "A", middle target is "B", right target is "C". The course is divided into 6 parts and is a series of timed-fire, virginia count exercises. Since it's timed fire, misses and shots not fired incur no penalties. Overtime shots are -5 points. The start position for each string is your choice: I typically use hands at sides or 'surrender'. Score and tape targets after each part.

Variations
• Change the start position to drawing from a table or other position.
• Take one step forward during each reload to practice moving and reloading.
• Add no-shoots covering the right C/D zone of "A" to the left D zone of "B" and the right D zone of "B" to the left C/D zone of "C". Score penalties.
• Score the bottom half of all targets as hard cover (from base of A zone down) and score hits in hard cover as misses.
