DOT AQUISITION AND TRACKING PRACTICE TARGET

The top row of 2" circles can be used to practice the "80/20 rule". (Draw from the holster quickly and slow down for the last 20% as you acquire the dot and focus it on the target and send one round accurately in the circle. Repeat and gradually try to increase speed to a 90/10 ratio and even a 95/5.) The second row of 2" circles can be used to practice tracking the dot through strings of fire. This will let you know if you need to work more on grip, recoil management, and cadence. Start slow and make sure you can keep all the shots inside the circle, then move to the next circle and pick up the cadence a little bit, keep tracking the dot and be accurate. Increase the speed and cadence until you notice you can't keep your rounds in the circle. The bottom 2 rectangles (3"x5") can be used to "put it all together." From the draw, fire anywhere from 3-6 rounds accurately within the rectangle, keeping in mind all that we've worked on up to this point such as the "80/20 rule," seeing the dot drop in from 12 o'clock, cadence, etc. If successful, try to increase speed and cadence in the second rectangle. Keep in mind these are just suggestions and things that we have found to help us, personally. None of this is new or original, simply just points that we have learned from instructors like Donovan Moore, Scott Jedlinski, Ernest Langdon, and others!
