Stages for a drill to train concealed carry skills at the range

Drill Instructions by Stage

ACCURACY is a 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 (7″ Dot). Touching the edge is a HIT.

Drill Performance Standard

To perform clearing malfunction safely. Record time for reference.

Shooting the Drill

Type 3 malfunction is double feed. Use Type 3 dummy load.


Clearing a Type 3 Malfunction
The drill for correcting a Type 3 malfunction is as follows: Without stopping to think or assess, (1) bring your shooting arm’s elbow back to your ribcage; (2) engage the slide stop with your shooting hand’s thumb and, using an overhand grip with your off-hand, rip-rack the slide like you are trying to rip it off of the frame; (3) using your off-hand, rip the magazine from the mag well and throw it to the ground; (4) while keeping the muzzle target-oriented, rotate the ejection port clockwise toward the ground; (5) using an overhand grip, rip-rack the slide three times like you are trying to rip it off of the frame; (6) perform an emergency reload; and (7) reestablish your grip and drive your sights back on target.
