Handgun Training Drills (Ken Hackathorn)
Basic Handgun Training Drills--Modified
As described by Ken Hackathorn
In American Handgunner Magazine
September/October 1998
Page 42


Ammunition Required: 50 rounds

Target: IDPA silhouette scored 5-4-2.

Time Limits: Basic time limits as noted. As shooter skill increases, either shorten the time limits or increase the distance to the target.

Stage 1 -- 3 yards/Close Combat

Shooting is done from a close combat/weapon retention position, with the weapon already drawn. Fire 2 rounds in 2 seconds. 3X total of 6 rounds.

Stage 2 -- 3 yards/Retreating from the target

On signal, begin backing away from the target. Draw and engage the target with at least 3 rounds while moving backwards. You should end the movement at the 10 yard line. 2X. Total of 6 rounds.

Your goal is to rapidly gain distance from the threat while you are drawing and engaging the target. The greater the distance you are from the threat, the greater your chances of survival.

Stage 3 -- 5 yards/Strong Hand Only

On signal, draw and engage the target with 2 rounds in 4 seconds STONG HAND ONLY. 3X. Total of 6 rounds.

Stage 4 -- 7 yards/Double Taps

On signal, draw and engage the target with 2 rounds in 4 seconds. 4X. Total of 8 rounds.

Stage 5 -- 7 yards/Lateral Movement

How to perform this drill depends on the configuration of your range facility. The goal is to draw, begin lateral movement, and engage the target with three rounds.

This should be accomplished moving to your strong side, and also to your weak side. 2X. Total of 6 rounds.

This exercise increases your skills at placing your shots effectively while moving to cover or if your only path of escape is moving laterally. Go slowly at first, and then pick up your speed of movement only as fast as you can get good hits.

Facing three targets. On signal, draw and engage each target with two rounds, perform a mandatory reload, and re-engage each target with two rounds. Total of 12 rounds fired. Par time is 15 seconds for auto pistols and 18 seconds for revolvers.

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.


PART 1
50 YARDS

• 1 shot on A, prone -- 7.5 secs -- 5x (5 rnds)
• 2 shots on B, standing -- 5.5 secs - 4x (8 rnds)
35 YARDS
• 1 shot, reload, 1 shot on C -- 5.5 secs - 6x (12 rnds)

TOTAL HITS: A=5 B=8 C=12
TOTAL ROUNDS/POINTS: 25/125


PART 2
25 YARDS

• 1 shot on A -- 2.3 secs - 3x (3 rnds)
• 1 shot facing left, right, and back on B - 2.5 secs per shot (3 rnds)
• 2 shots on C, hands clasped behind back - 3.0 secs - 3x (6 rnds)

TOTAL HITS: A=3 B=3 C=6
TOTAL ROUNDS/POINTS: 12/60


PART 3
15 YARDS

• 1 shot on A,B,C misc hand position and target order - 3.0 secs - 3x (9 rnds)
• 1 shot, reload, 1 shot, reload, 1 shot on A,B,C -- 5.5 secs - 2x (6 rnds)
• 1 shot, weak hand on B,C,A - 5.5 secs - then C,A,B (6 rnds)

TOTAL HITS: A=7 B=7 C=7
TOTAL ROUNDS/POINTS: 21/105


PART 4
15 YARDS

• 2 shots - strong hand only on A,B,C - 6.0 secs (6 rnds)
• 1 shot head on A,B,C - 4.0 secs (3 rnds)
10 YARDS
• 2 shots on A,B,C - 3.0 secs - repeat C,B,A (12 rnds)

TOTAL HITS: A=7 B=7 C=7
TOTAL ROUNDS/POINTS: 21/105


PART 5
10 YARDS

• 2 shots on A,B,C,reload,1 shot head on A,B,C - 6.5 secs - (8 rnds)
• 2 shots body/1 head on A, reload, repeat on B,C - 8.0 secs (9 rnds)
• 2 shots on C - 1.5 secs - 5x - (10 rounds)

TOTAL HITS: A=6 B=6 C=16
TOTAL ROUNDS/POINTS: 28/140


PART 6
7 YARDS

• 1 shot head on A - 1.5 secs - 6x - (6 rnds)
• 2 shots on B - 1.3 secs - 3x (6 rnds)
• 1 shot, RL, 1 shot, reload, 1 shot on C - 4.5 secs -2x (6 rnds)

TOTAL HITS: A=6 B=6 C=6
TOTAL ROUNDS/POINTS: 18/90


TOTAL ROUNDS: 125
TOTAL POINTS: 625

A Grand Master should be able to 'clean' this drill.

Calculate your percentage assuming 100% is 625 points.

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.
