Carbine Training: Driving the Rifle

Finished up a one day carbine training class focusing on "Driving the Rifle" which basically means moving your rifle from target to target with your eyes leading the way and already on the next target.

We trained firing multiple rounds at a target, then multiple rounds per target at multiple targets, all geared toward getting out of the habitual "double tap".

Once the basic skills and concepts were learned they were all put together in the form of several skill developing drills.

We did a bunch of drills one being the "1 - 5 Drill". This drill is a lot of fun. Basically, you have three IPSC targets set up in a row 5 yards away. You have to shoot 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 rounds in each target. Starting at the far left target to to the far right target then back to the far left target for a total of 15 rounds.

I managed to get in a time of 3.37 seconds on my fastest try. It's a fun one!

Also, transitioning to your secondary weapon when the primary fails was taught along with a bunch of other great stuff!
