Cool new drill I came up with. Tests a lot of stuff.

I started a new drill this last weekend. Using a 100 yard field, I set up paper plate targets at roughly 10-25 yard increments. The idea is to draw, shoot the first target, run to the first target, use the first target as cover and shoot 2 targets 2 rounds each. Run to that target, go prone and shoot the next target which is 15 yards away. Then run to that target, go to a knee and shoot two targets approximately 25 yards away each (both about 30 yards from each other). You do this while running your ass off. You run, do not jog or walk to each target. This drill will take a lot out of you because you end up running about 55 yards total. You can vary it by doing lean-outs, roll-outs, etc behind the targets. I used "recycled" political signs with paper plates taped to them.

Fun drill that gets you in shape in a lot of different ways. I tried it with pistol and rifle,

My neighbors would think I was a Mall Ninja.
Seriously, If it keeps you feeling up to par, go for it. Sounds like you need a metal detector to scope your brass.

And where will you find the space or range, which will allow you to do this?

Actually, both. I did it first 4 or so times with my pistol. The second time I did it with my AK. Quite fun. The "draw" part on rifle is mounting the rifle from sling carry (your choice).

Overhill, we have a couple of nice outdoor ranges in Middle, GA.
