I’m a member on the Brian Enos forums. I don’t post there much, but I have learned a ton. Of course there is a lot of things that should be ignored there, too, but such is the nature of the internet.
As stated in the title, a lot of work is needed for my transitions. In one of Enos’s own posts, he sets out the guidelines for a transition drill. And it goes like this:
- Three IDPA/IPSC targets, about a meter apart and set up at 10 meters
- Draw and engage each target (starting on the left) with one shot, pivot back to the first target and repeat, pivot back to the first and repeat. For a total of nine shots in the string.
- Score the string by taking your time and adding half a second for any shot outside of the “A” zone. (I used IDPA targets and put two shots in the -3 zone … and added 1.5s for those)
- Repeat between six and ten times.
- Calculate your average.
And that’s what I did:
My average was about 9.4 seconds per string. Time only was about 7 seconds. So, on average, I have about five shots out of the A zone per string.
After finding my average for seven strings, I mailed it back to Enos. I have received the reply and I’m working on it. Both for dry fire and live.
An update is soon to follow.
