Shooting drills should focus on only a few techniques per drill. Make sure you realize exactly what the focus is and use the drills to work on new skills and for fixing your weaknesses. Incorporate your dry fire drills prior to and while working on these drills. These drills are mini scenarios which combine some reality and training together. We utilize all of these drills in our Tactical 2 Drills Course
