Drill Instructions by Stage
ACCURACY is a HandgunDrills.com standardized difficulty rating to describe the accuracy required to make any shot. The rating is calculated as the “distance in yards” divided by the “diameter in inches of the target zone”. Example: A 7″ target from 7 yards is a 1.0 rating and is used by many as an accuracy level for concealed carry competency drill tests. So for example, a 15″ target zone at 15 yards and a 5″ target zone at 5 yards also have an accuracy rating of 1.0. The higher the accuracy rating the harder the shot and the lower the rating the easier the shot. With this system you can easily estimate the accuracy required for any shot. (Note: All non-circular target zones are normalized to their equivalent circular target with a diameter of the same area.)
Scoring the Drill
A MISS is a shot out of the scoring zone (BODY A). Touching the line is a HIT.
