I got this drill from Tom Givens. He originally posted it in the July Rangemaster Newsletter.
Tom’s description is as follows:
This month we are going to shoot a qualification course that would normally be shot on a silhouette target, but substitute a B-8C or an FBI-IP1 bullseye target, scored as printed. This
raises the difficulty considerably, and reinforces mental discipline as well as the fundamentals of marksmanship.

I shot the drill about as “cold” as I could get. I shot it first thing after I returned home from a trip to Uganda and Rwanda. I hadn’t fired a gun or dry fired in more than six weeks. I was a bit rusty and this was far from my best performance. I still managed to pass.
I fired the drill three separate times with two different guns. I shot a bit too fast. I completed each drill segmented in the required time. On some of the stages, I left way too much time on the clock.
I felt OK with that performance and scored a 284/300.
I shot the drill again to try to improve my score.
I only improved by a single point 285/300 but shot a much tighter group.
Just for fun, I ran the drill again with my Ruger LCP II from a Desantis Nemesis pocket holster carried in my right front pocket. I started each drill with my hand in my pocket.
Surprisingly, I didn’t do nearly as poorly as I expected and ended up shooting a 282 with the little pocket gun even though the target looked like I shot it with a buckshot shell.
I really liked this drill. It was challenging, yet easy to set up and score. Get some B-8s and give it a try.
